Sonzai is a 2d, action-brawler platforming RPG. The town of Kumotoshi holds secrets. A new life, new people, new spirits. What are the threads that bind people together? What is the nature of magic?
Thrown into a new life far away from home, how you bind together with those around you can make all the difference in the world. While you learn the ways of magic, every new month brings new challenges and new people. Kumotoshi holds secrets beyond the realm of imagination. Thrown into a new life far away from home, how you bind together with those around you can make all the difference in the world.
Taking place in a dynamic, living town filled with unique characters, each with their own behaviour and stories, the game embraces deep social links and relationship building that affect both the course of the story and scope of the player’s ability. Visceral, mixing genre-defying RPG elements with character-action style brawler combat means Sonzai brings something truly unique to the genre; customizable “rune” abilities and weapon load-outs accommodate vastly different fighting styles along the game’s more traditional RPG elements.
The game is wrapped in a beautiful, inky minimalist art style with precisely choreographed animations (every single animation frame hand drawn), complementing a deep, thought-provoking narrative about life, purpose and magic, within a vast world filled with hidden lore to discover, and a colorful, diverse cast of characters to meet.
Sonzai is the debut game by trailblazing video game duo 2 Odd Diodes, hailing from Kolkata, India, and published by New York-based Top Hat Studios, Inc.
