The Great Villainess: Strategy of Lily Set for a 2024 Release Date
The Great Villainess: Strategy of Lily is set for a 2024 release date on PC via Steam. It’s a turn-based strategy game produced by One or Eight, WSS Playground and Alliance Arts. WSS Playground is known for their recent games Needy Streamer Overload and Record of Lodoss War: Deedlit in Wonder Labyrinth. The game will have English, Japanese, Chinese and Korean languages available.
The player takes control of Scarlet, who is sentenced to death but is able to escape and time travel to the past to clear her name. She needs to use persuasive powers to sway public opinion and enlists the help of a livestreamer as well as propaganda to fight back against an empire controlling fake news.
The character designs from Rolua (Nijisanji) are really interesting and we’re certainly looking forward to see what the rest of the cast look like.

Daichi Saito, CEO of WSS Playground explains:
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?
We look forward to seeing how players exercise what could be called excessive press power.
