This is the beginning of a game I wrote when I first discovered Choice of Games around 1,5 years ago. I was playing a lot of Shogun 2: Total War at the time, so it should be clear what my main inspiration was. Now that I’m learning to work with ChoiceScript I figured I might as well translate the already existing content into a playable format…
Name: Why Samurai
Genre: Historical Fiction
Set in Sengoku period Japan (the period of the “Warring States”) you may choose between three historically existent clans and experience this period of upheaval in the history of Japan. In this game I strive for a pretense of historical accuracy, so most people described are based on actual people that existed in the period. The general idea is that you will find yourself taking part in the major battles and other important events of the Sengoku period, starting in 1566.
