    The Great Villainess: Strategy of Lily Revealed

    The Great Villainess: Strategy of Lily is a strategy RPG starring Scarlet, the duchess of the Imperial Kingdom. Scarlet is falsely accused of regicide and sent to the guillotine, but a mysterious girl named Lily saves her from certain death. Lily holds the power of “streaming” alongside the best aerial warship in the entire Empire. 

    Players will combine Scarlet’s wit and Lily’s technological expertise to lead a rebellion against the Imperial Kingdom. As the villainess, Scarlet may use Lily’s livestreaming powers to lead the revolution and influence imperial ground troops in turn-based strategy RPG combat. Spread uncertainty among generals, create diversions, and strike at critical points to bewilder the Imperial armies. While livestreaming and battling imperial troops, Scarlet and Lily may gain valuable allies and forge deep relationships to bring the best out of their forces. 

    “The Great Villainess: Strategy of Lily is ultimately a story about mass media. If we can so easily sway public opinion in a world before the Internet, where will the power of media technology go?” says Daichi Saito, CEO of WSS Playground. “We look forward to seeing how players exercise what could be called excessive press power.”
