Description
Release date: 2016
Shigatari is a samurai RPG with roguelike elements. You will wander a fictional feudal Japan doing samurai things including: cutting down defenseless peasants, meditating under waterfalls, writing haiku, visiting geisha, and committing seppuku.

Features:
  • Realistic Turn-Based Katana Combat - Targeted attacks, active defense, and five different stances give ample opportunity to outwit foes. Skill is rewarded and carelessness is punished.

  • Real Period Artwork - The "Floating World" of ukiyo-e comes to life! All characters and scenes have been sourced from real public domain edo-period paintings and woodblock prints.

  • Choice - Decide your "Way of the Samurai" in more than five-hundred choices across tons of hand-crafted scenes. There will be consequences.

  • Haiku - Commemorate important events with a beautiful poem. Your words will be remembered forever, so choose wisely!

  • Death - Your death may come quick, but you will not be forgotten. Your ancestors will be pleased with whatever glory you managed, and doubly so if you commit seppuku.

i dont think you'll run intop too much copyright problems outside of some kind of strict historical preservation society.
but i would commision more art, rotoscope cartoons of samurai battles and more historical sections to the game.
if i wanted to send in free-bi sprite sheets for this project, where could i send them too?
