“Visually ravishing.” – Joe Gordon, Forbidden Planet

Set within a time of myth and fairy tale,
Briar follows the story of Princess Layka, who seeks an end to the curse that keeps her shut off from the world.

Trapped for years behind the enchanted barrier of the briar, she awaits her one true knight, who has been tasked with the quest to break the curse and set her free.

By Benjamin Read & Chris Wildgoose, creators of the acclaimed
Porcelain: A Gothic Fairy Tale, Briar is inspired by European myth and folklore. It subverts the fairy tale tradition of the princess imprisoned behind a hedge of thorns, turning it into something dark, bittersweet, and original.

“Briar, for all its beauty, radiates menace also, as a good fairy tale should, like nature capable of such beauty and wonder, but always with danger and death following but a step back in the shadows.” – Joe Gordon
