Shigatari [Samurai] [RPG] - Steam Release

#1 Post by ukiyoefan » Sat Aug 26, 2017 12:45 pm


Hi there! I just released a weird samurai RPG called Shigatari on Steam. http://store.steampowered.com/app/486380

From the Steam product page:
Most samurai are forgotten. Will you be among them, or will you join the ranks of Miyamoto Musashi and Tomoe Gozen?

Key features:
Samurai RPG with permadeath
Beautiful historical artwork from the public domain
Brutal and strategic katana duels
Combine seven dueling schools to form your own style
Three-axis morality system
Commit seppuku to earn persistent bonuses
Get one-shot by bosses who look like kabuki actors
Cut down defenseless peasants and give their hearts to an oni
Get wasted on sake and visit a kagema
I have 20 steam keys to give away. If Shigatari sounds interesting to you, or if you're just a cheap bastard who wants free stuff, then PM me a haiku and I will PM you a key. 1 haiku = 1 key. No refunds.

Thanks to PyTom and all the other smart people who contribute to RenPy.
Also a huge thanks to the old ukiyo-e masters whose work I tried to appropriate in the most respectful way possible.

Utagawa's work
Nevermind of who made this
In the game is great

My english sucks so I'm not sure about syllables...
But anyway, this is really great idea [kabuki actors as bosses c:] so I'll probably be looking forward [probably] for your next game in this style.
My english is pretty horrible c:

Isn't the ukiyo-e artwork awesome? There is another game I've found that uses it: http://store.steampowered.com/app/360450

Seppuku is fun
everyone should sin a lot
sorry I killed sensei

(I'm not actually sorry, but the not would've breached the standard syllable count.)

Sounds like a cool game
I would love to add it to
My endless backlog

It seriously sounds pretty great, I can't wait to commit seppuku.

I'm bringing a stop to this now. The last thing I want is for people to do key giveaways out in public like this. PM them to ukiyoefan if they want, but this shouldn't be out in public on the forum.

Sorry! I didn't realize this kind of thing was against the rules. I'll review the posting guidelines before posting again.

I just started playing this and I'm really enjoying it! I always like games that have permadeath but also allow you to get some bonuses that carry over to your next run - it provides a nice challenge without making your efforts seem totally futile. The combat system with the timing and everything is really interesting too, and I love being given the option to write haikus.
