Fat Princess is a downloadable program for the PlayStation Network made by Titan Studios and sold by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is primarily a zero to thirty-two multiplayer game with the basic goal of rescuing the Princess and bringing her back to the team's base.
The players collect and carry cakes to feed the enemy's princess which makes her heavier and therefore harder for the enemy to carry back to their own castle.
The game contains six character classes, each of which helps to make the team's task of capturing the princess much harder.:
Gameplay: In Fat Princess, the player joins one of two opposing groups consisting of up to 16 cartoon characters each, with the goal of rescuing their team's princess from the other team's outhouse. In order to make their opponents' task more difficult, players can feed the captive princess more and more cake slices so that she will become heavier and harder to carry back to her respective castle.
Players can change their character classes and abilities on the fly by picking up hats that are generated at their team's castle. Hats can also be found on the warzone where enemies have fallen. The game's six classes include the villager, mage, warrior, and worker. On their blog, Titan Studios has teased three additional classes: pirate, guitarist, and the king. Each class has its own unique set of abilities and skills. Each class can be upgraded by having the worker class collect resources from the map and then upgrading the hat producing machines by using a prefixed amount of resources. Upgrades provide alternative weapons or attacks to each class.
On each map there are several trees and ore nodes which worker classes can use to obtain resources.
Other interactive objects are bombs produced by an upgraded worker hut and a magic potion which turns players into chickens when thrown.
There are also torches that most classes can use to ignite their weapons to do additional damage, this was originally thought to only be the case with the ranger, but it is also available for use by other classes.
