About This Game

Will you choose a disgraced ronin who’s lost his purpose in life, but finds hope in the most unexpected of places? Or perhaps a lost boy, destined to control the lives of many? An avatar of death who lives for love? You will find yourself in all these roles, and more.

The Boshin War is tearing Japan apart as the forces of the Emperor and the Shogunate clash in endless battles of attrition. Neither side will yield, neither will surrender, because they fight for something much more important than land or power – a place in history and the future of the Empire.

This turn-based tactical RPG places you in Japan at the bitter and bloody end of the feudal era. Your enemies are many, from implacable samurai to bizarre yokai from the Ne-no-kuni realm to the relentless steampunk mercenaries of the East Nippon Company, a British trade conglomerate with dubious intentions. Your decisions will directly shape the outcome of the story – stay true to your principles or choose the path of betrayal. Haunt or be haunted. Dispel the encroaching shadows by sword, gun, or spellcraft, or let them consume you. The choice is yours – it always has been, even if you cannot comprehend it yet.


Take on the role of a master strategist and become an entire team of characters with a variety of backgrounds and skills, each with their own motivations, desires, and fears... and set them on the path that best serves you.


In combat and on the road, your every choice will push your characters onto different paths. Your decisions determine who they become and whether they will build new bonds, abandon lifelong friendships or rebuild family ties.


The complex web of your team members’ goals and relationships also influences their battles. Prove that you can take advantage of the strengths – and weaknesses – of your team, for if you fail, your allies will not survive to see the end of the tale.


Only one thing is certain: every road you take will cast a shadow upon the lives of many. Choose wisely and discover what lies at the end of your own unique path.
