RE: Prince of Nigeria


RE: Prince of Nigeria is hilarious, fun… Set aside an hour or two and prepare to fall in love with the most charming scammer ever.” – Jenni Lada


“Once upon a time, I met a prince… the Prince of Nigeria. Throughout his lovely poetry and wonderful serenades of emails, I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Too bad falling in love with a prince isn’t all flowers and bunnies as fairytales claimed – we were playing a dangerous game of passion, wildfire and strife. What awaited us both was a story of heartbreak, of tragedy, of broken romance, and deer droppings…”

RE: Prince of Nigeria is a crack comedy about a girl who falls in love with a prince – or rather, just the perpetrator of a commonly known Nigerian internet scam.

  13. Just finished it and like it. Wish there was another game to this.

  14. […] Ah the internet. Where would we be without it? Well we wouldn’t have this now would we? RE: Prince of Nigeria is, for the most part, a comedy game where a young, naive girl falls for the oldest scam in the book. Not only does she believe the titular Prince of Nigeria needs her help, she begins to fall in love with him. I can handle this kind of over the top as it just keeps topping off the nonsense with mostly good jokes until the inevitable end. There is also a bit of a twist as it gets closer to the finale, but that I consider to be a take it or leave it proposition. If you have fun with mots of the game, you won’t mind how it all wraps up. I didn’t mind and I had a great deal of fun. Download RE: The Prince of Nigeria here! […]

  15. Dear Soyasushi,
    I’ve been a fan of your works since first playing Frozen Essence back in 2013. Since then I’ve been hooked. Regarding Prince of Nigeria, that was a clever little twist you put near the end and up into the epilogue. Loved the pacing, humor, and the creative setup of the screen for the emails. In one word, elegant. Everyone involved in this did an excellent job. I had one question though, would it be alright to post up a let’s play? I managed a decent recording and planned to release it, but only with you and your team’s express permission. Whether yes or no I will completely understand, being a creator myself. Thank you for sharing this little gem and keep rocking on!
