The game is a mirror of Princess Maker 2 as far as mechanics work. Visuals and battles are different. You, as a retired hero, are asked by the Fairy King to take care of a young girl and raise her into a becoming woman. What becomes of her is all dependent on where you send her to school, work, and who she interacts with.
Rather than governed by Patron Gods, your daughter's stats rely on what element her astrological sign falls on. (Earth, Fire, Air, Water)
The world is still young, people and fairies co-exist in this vision of a primeval chaos era. There is no powerful king in this world where everyday people live for themselves. One day, a bright light appeared, and in the midst of this, it was proclaimed that the king's country was brought a long time of peace.
This peace would not last.
A light shook the kingdom, And in the warm hearts of the people there was a foreboding, ill feeling. In the forest of the kingdom, a young girl was discovered. She was a great beauty, with the figure of a fairy, and claimed that she had no memories of her childhood. The girl was thought to be about 10.
Your daughter has no default name, but she is given the name Melody Blue in Go_Go_Princess. As mentioned, she is the most temperamental of all the daughters and has a high tendency to run away, even when she is completely happy.
Raphael (Your Butler) - Helps you make decisions about careing for your daughter and saves her from battle is she collapses, much like Cube. Your daughter can also marry him, but unlike Cube, he will marry your daughter even if she has an unsatisfying ending, according to the gods.
BattleThe biggest difference from Princess Maker 2 and PM:LAW is the battle system. The player is given a hand of cards to choose from with assigned numbers. The Cards can be Attack/Melee, Magic, HP Restore, and MP Restore. HP/MP cards prevent both sides from attacking when they are played. The amount of HP/MP restored is randomly generated. Occasionally cards appear that may prevent the enemy from playing his hand (ghost), or add strength to the player's attack (flaming sword). The flaming sword card is only effective if the player's cards are stronger than the enemy's card.
The player always wants to choose a higher number than their opponent in order to strike any damage. However, because the enemy's card does not appear until after the player selects their card, it is impossible to predict which card is the best to play. The higher the number on the player's card, the better the odds of winning each round. If the number is the same for both player and enemy, niether will take damage. If the difference between the higher and lower card is only one number, it will not deal damage.
You can pay gold to send your daughter to classes to help raise her stats. Unlike work, classes don't have negative effects, aside from stress, and only add points to certian traits.

Your daughter will recieve a monetary prize if she wins 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place in any of the contests. The cooking contest comes with a bonus prize, an egg that will enhance different stats depending on whether she eats it or keeps it.
If your daughter excels in a certain contest, she will gain a rival in that field and she will want to compete in that specific contest every year. It is possible to refuse her request.
Here are a few examples of possible endings. Not all are listed.
