Story

Oishi Matabei is the last survivor of the Chōsokabe clan, left for dead, he took refuge in a small village in Kyushu Island (Saikaido, Satsuma province) in southern Japan.

His desire is to join his daimyo (lord) in death but he wants to find his murderer first. It is a very difficult task : find a job to survive, get some money, then, interrogate, intimidate or bribe the right people to gather information on those responsible for the destruction of the clan, at last, remained anonymous.




Era of the game


We are in 1603 during the Edo period (1603-1868), a few years after the battle of Sekigahara (1600) which marked the seizure of power of Tokugawa Leyasu, thus becoming the most powerful military leader of Japan. He established a new capital in Edo (Tokyo) and consolidated the supremacy of his shogunate (government).

His reign brought a development of culture as well as a period of peace. However, in order to control the caste of warriors, he enacted new laws.

Samurai were no longer allowed to change of masters, to marry out of their clan, or to have occupations outside the clan without the consent of their former master. As a result, the samurai who lost his lord or fief had no choice but to become a rōnin.

These drastic measures increased the number of rōnins. Having no status, they were excluded from the Japanese hierarchical feudal system. In fact, even if some chose more humble professions, becoming farmers or Buddhist priests, others turned to a mercenary career, bodyguard and even cutthroats.



Character

Oishi Matabei was a samurai belonging to the Chōsokabe clan.
Despised by his peers, he is trying hard to find a place in this society which rejected him.
His desire for vengeance is giving him the strength to survive.

• An illustrated encyclopaedia
------> An encyclopaedia who allows the player to learn more about the era of the game, the Japanese culture including weapons, armours, religion, foods and so on.

Music

Since I am making video games I have always been passionate about music. I started several years ago a training as Sound Designer. I consider that music and sound design must be equal in term of quality concerning graphic, gameplay and animation of the video game.

Join us to our KICKSTARTER campaign



We did it!

Hello everyone, today is a great day for us and maybe for you too.
After months of preparation, constructive feedback and exchange with professionals of the video game industry, we launched our first Kickstarter campaign.









Why a Kickstarter?


We are a small video game company composed of two people, located in France. Although we are working full-time on Bushido with our own financial resources, it would be very difficult to build the game by our own means and without the help of the video game community.

So if you feel like exploring the feudal Japan in the 17 th century and shaping with us the universe of Bushido the Way of Men,
join us and talk with us.


For more information see the link below :

Kickstarter Campaign






We are keen to show you some rewards that you can get on our Kickstarster :










The figurine will be sculpted and painted by hand by a professional. See below some examples of his creations and painting.





Some figurines painted by Jean-Marc Brisset

A demo will be available for all our backers, few months (April 2018) after the end of the Kickstarter campaign.



Thank you for your interest and support. We are very enthusiastic about this project and hope to see you soon on our Kickstarter page.

Thank you so much for your support purple hills :)

Merci beaucoup pour ton soutien purple hills :)
Nous sommes en train de préparer un kickstarter pour fin octobre :)
This looks quite interesting! "No FedEx quests" certainly sounds nice :D

I don't know how far you are into development right now, but based on the screenshots in the description, I feel you should probably add a simple drop shadow or something under the characters (and also maybe that center stone structure). They feel a bit out-of-place with the background.

Hey turkeyDawg, thank you for your feedback.
We are still early in the development.
Thank you for your advice, we want definitely put a shadow under the characters, so we will work on it.
This looks so freaking awesome and informative to the point it's like reading a book! Caught my attention for sure, and I'm definitely subbing.

Your project looks dope.
I'm sorry to see that your Kickstarter was a flop. Will you continue working on Bushido? Do you plan to try find another way of man to fund your game?
