99 Spirits - Cage of Night Now Available!

July 4th, 2014



99 Spirits - Cage of Night is now available for the first time in English. It is the first of the two side stories to PC Puzzle RPG 99 Spirits, giving you a chance to know more of the fan favourite support characters. We are releasing Cage of Night directly on Steam as a DLC to 99 Spirits, and it includes both English and Japanese versions of the game.

The game stars fan-favorites Saki and Komiya, and adds brand new characters. A story of tragic love and foxes’ games told in visual novel style, the Cage of Night is set during the events of 99 Spirits storyline and is set in a darker mood than the main story.

Additionally, it features six Mini Scenarios with in-between scenes from 99 Spirits that will bring a smile to your face and a Developer Symposium with commentary by TORaIKI, 99 Spirits' creators to tell you where and how this all started.

99 Spirits - Cage of Night was a successful stretch goal on the 99 Spirits IndieGoGo project.

Reviews

“99 Spirits has a great art direction, an original story and a unique gameplay that reminds to both Pictionary and Pokémon with a great result. If all indie Japanese indie games are this good I’ll start to learn the language ASAP. It can’t be missing in any indie game collection.”
Bit Maiden

“Without a shadow of doubt, 99 Spirits is one of the most imaginative and accomplished indie games on the market.”
True PC Gaming

“Mixing the puzzle and RPG genre along with some anime themed influences, 99 Spirits became an absorbing and addicting title that was nearly impossible for me to put down for too long.”

About the Game

99 Spirits is an RPG/Puzzle game that revolves around the popular Japanese folklore of Tsukumogami, everyday objects coming alive on their 100th birthday.

Hanabusa is a young headstrong girl living in the Heian capital within medieval Japan. But when her mother is slain by evil spirits, her life turns into one of vengeance as she sets out to hunt and destroy the spirits.

During Hanabusa’s travels, she meets a white fox who turns out to be a servant of the mountain god. Hanabusa receives a special sword passed down from her mother, which gives her the ability to see the true forms of spirits to help slay them. Shortly after, a spirit claiming to be Hanabusa’s long-lost father, Hidetada, breaks her sword and leaves Hanabusa powerless and confused.

Now to mend her broken sword and learn the truth about her father, Hanabusa embarks on a journey to annihilate every last one of the evil spirits.

99 Spirits is an ambitious title that eventually falls flat due to its cumbersome battle system. The storyline is great, and the characters are memorable. But when you are forced to execute the same battle commands again and again with very little variation, when you are forced to "discover" the same, old Tsukumagami again and again in battles you shouldn't skip as they help you level up -- the game becomes a chore. It's too bad, really, because there was a great game in the pipes somewhere, but along the way, it went awry. There is no reason why previously-discovered Tsukumagami couldn't have been revealed permanently, so that you are not forced to whittle away at its discovery every battle, "guessing" what is promptly known through repetition, and slogging through monotony.

A very original game with a few gameplay and functional flaws that may frustrate some.

I liked:
-the combat and gem system is very original
-the art style is great, and the story and characters are very interesting

Not too fond:
-the battle music variety. There is only one combat track which loops. I ended up muting it.
-New game+. It is merely a restart with no changes to enemies or difficulty, with your level and money carried over. At least it makes New game+ much faster to complete for the alternate endings.

Frustrating and irritating:
-New game+. It resets your mastered spirit skills. The game already restricts your acquition of skills by limiting the number spirits you can hold in the duration of the game and the availability of spirits by location.
-Kirikiri game engine bugs. Kirikiri is an extremely buggy engine that can make saving an irritant. Also it can crash the GUI and freeze the combat. Rotate your saves, and save often.

Bug workarounds:
Save menu bug- When bringing up the save menu, the menu is blank and I can't access the first page or it brings up the Spirit book.
Fix- Click on page one of the save menu which brings you to the Spirit book. Exit out of the Spirit book and open the save menu again. It should display properly.

Combat freeze- In combat, sometimes I cast an action and the game does not respond.
Fix- Hope you have a recent save. You have to restart the game client.

All in all, a very intriguing game, if you are forgiving of poor New game+ balance and the various bugs of the Kirikiri engine.

SAVE DAMMIT!

The game is very original with an unique combat system, it also has a good storyline and art. The reason I'm not recommending this game is because in my opinion it's a total rip-off for the full price, you can get better for much less, but that's not even the point, the game get's really boring after a few minutes playing.
The same unique and original battle system that I complimented above gets insanely repetitive and uninteresting, after you discover most of the spirits it just feels like an immense waste of time. The music also gets really repetitive and annoying.

99 Spirits introduces a unique new type of rpg. There are many good, as well as bad points to it.

First of, it is very extremist on difficulty, it is either really easy, or pretty hard. However the difficulty to it doesn't rely on lack of skill, it is mostly because of a low level. The game is pretty easy itself, but going too fast through it may cause it to be a headache. I remember that when I got to certain boss on my first playthough I had absolutely no skills or support from monsters, and I couldn't go back to catch more because I HAD to defeat the boss. Took me MANY tries to beat, so hear my advice ALWAYS be ready with a nice or decent "party".

Second, it is the gameplay itself, it can get really repetitive once you find all monsters of an area. And sometimes, when finding a monster for the first time, you have absolutely no idea what the monster is. Has anyone ever heard of a Torii? or a Naginata? Well it was the first time for me.

Also, there are some features of the game that are never explained to you, for example Starve and Food, the only thing these two do, is make your character move slower on the map the hungrier you are and viceversa, you can't die from starving though.

It has a very nice amount of characters, each different from the other (in the sense each NPC has her/his own personality). If something, I'd say this game is like a visual novel + a puzzle RPG style. In addition the soundtrack in the game is actually really good, but you might get tired of it as it will repeat itself several times on different areas (Same that happens with any song, the longer you hear it over and over, the more likely you'll start to hate it).

It is a very nice overall game, I don't really suggest it for its story, but for the experience of the game itself. And again, the game is easy to beat, but a little time consuming (especially if you want all achievements).

However, the game does fall short for the full price ($15). So if you can get it with discount or on a bundle, I'd say go for it. The best advice I can give you, is to try out the demo, that is the best way to tell if this game is or isn't for you.

Yes, I recommend this game, but only if you save every 2 steps.
The game is full of critical bugs and you're bound to see a lot of crashes before you finish the game.
The story is decent and the gameplay is fun, but it's constantly ruined by crashes that impede your progress.
