Oooh interesting... is this a physical or digital release? ININ Games got a decent track record of porting stuff? I've never heard of them.

I'd love for someone to do ports of Air Gallet and Gundhara.

They're no M2, but they seem to do a nice job.

I really want this game. But is such a shame to play it on a PS4 would be better on a system that can hook up to a crt

Love everything about this game except for two things:

-the horribly slow and interruptive text
-the horrible, generic music

I know I sound like a bitch but those two alone really hamper my experience.

Much like Strider and Kazakhstan, this was really a fantastic setting in a futuristic mid-East. If anyone knows the exact country it's meant to take place in, please let me know.

English version clearly says

MONDAY
AGADAN (Abadan?) - - IN THE PERSIAN GULF

SATURDAY
IN THE WOODS NEAR ALEPPO.

and very specific locales but IDK if that’s in the OG Japanese version. Yeah first level is Iran, etc.

I don’t know what’s the gripe with this game’s music, I feel like it’s a bit understated because of weak hardware but still pretty good, and dare I say it, it has a very memorable style that goes well with the schizo fever dream art style the game has. But I know I’m a minority here.

LoneSausage the text can be skipped with a button press IIRC so IDK about that either… and it’s what makes this game fascinating. Apparently it’s inspired by Koichi Yotsui’s tenure at Capcom. It’s so cryptic only the author knows what it’s supposed to mean for sure, and who knows, maybe it’s why there was a strong reluctance to rerelease it for all these years. Let’s recap the plot: assassin is sent by bathroom bossman to kill a god, gets betrayed and left to die, leads a revolution against bossman. God is called “slaver”. Doesn’t that get your imagination running?

Nice. Nice. I am satisfied.

You are worthy.

It’s reminiscent of XZR games, the PC versions of Exile. Those things…can get pretty wild. Like, you’re an ancient sword wielding Persian assassin hero…who does coke and speed, goes through a time machine and assassinates both Reagan and Gorby.
