Tainted Reality Gaming: Okami

OrochiThis edition of Throwback Thursday has a special game that our main man Roger has never played before! All that changes as Seraphina (aka. Manager-sama) joins the broadcast, helping him through the beautiful land of feudal Nippon! This game is steep with mythology, casting the main character as a white wolf based on the Shinto sun goddess, Amaterasu! At her side (or rather riding on her back) is Issun, the valuable guide / artist who comes in a very portable size.

Join us in the chatroom and be a part of the #TRFam!

Plot: When the eight-headed demon known as Orochi returns after being sealed away for 100 years, Ammy is resurrected. In order to rid the land of his curse, she must acquire the other god’s Celestial Brush Techinques and restore Nippon to its former glory!
Whether comedic Japanese folklore is your cup of tea or not, this game is so visually and audibly pleasing, you will NOT want to miss out!
