Japan: Jubei's Vengeance

Recommended Posts

Status:
Completed


Genre:

  • Rpg/Strategy, dark fantasy, Drama

Setting

  • -This game takes place in Feudal and in the Sengoku period of Japan. The "feudal" period of Japanese history, dominated by the powerful regional families (daimyÅ) and the military rule of warlords (shÅgun), stretched from 1185 to 1868.

The Edo period, a Period of war, politics and conflict between European and Asian Religion.

  • -The Sengoku period or 'Warring States period' in Japanese history was a time of social upheaval, political intrigue, and nearly constant military conflict that lasted roughly from the middle of the 15th century to the beginning of the 17th century. The Sengoku period in Japan would eventually lead to the unification of political power under the Tokugawa shogunate. Christians and firearms first arrived during this period to Japan.

History

During the Edo period, also called the Tokugawa period, the administration of the country was shared by over two hundred daimyÅ in a federation governed by the Tokugawa shogunate. The Tokugawa clan, leader of the victorious eastern army in the Battle of Sekigahara, was the most powerful of them and for fifteen generations monopolized the title of Sei-i TaishÅgun (often shortened to shÅgun). With their headquarters at Edo (present-day TÅkyÅ), the Tokugawa commanded the allegiance of the other daimyÅ, who in turn ruled their domains with a rather high degree of autonomy.

The Tokugawa shogunate carried out a number of significant policies. They placed the samurai class above the commoners: the agriculturists, artisans, and merchants. They enacted sumptuary laws limiting hair style, dress, and accessories. They organized commoners into groups of five and held all responsible for the acts of each individual. To prevent daimyÅ from rebelling, the shÅguns required them to maintain lavish residences in Edo and live at these residences on a rotating schedule; carry out expensive processions to and from their domains; contribute to the upkeep of shrines, temples, and roads; and seek permission before repairing their castles.

Genesis:

The "Christian problem" was, in effect, a problem of controlling both the Christian daimyo in Kyūshū and their trade with the Europeans. By 1612, the shogun's retainers and residents of Tokugawa lands had been ordered to forswear Christianity. More restrictions came in 1616 (the restriction of foreign trade to Nagasaki and Hirado, an island northwest of Kyūshū), 1622 (the execution of 120 missionaries and converts), 1624 (the expulsion of the Spanish), and 1629 (the execution of thousands of Christians). Finally, the Closed Country Edict of 1635 prohibited any Japanese from traveling outside Japan or, if someone left, from ever returning.

The christian problem reached its highlight under Ieyasu's successors Tokugawa Hidetada and Tokugawa Iemitsu, particularly after the predominantly Christian population of Kyūshū had risen in the Shimabara Rebellion against the shogunate in 1637. The uprising was crushed brutally; more than 40,000 Christians were killed. Authorities of persecution were set up, with the goal of a nationwide persecution and extermination of the Christians. Anyone who was suspected of being a Christian had to abandon Christianity publicly and dishonor Christian symbols, which were called 'fumie', , as well as register in the Buddhist register of faith of Buddhist temples and visit those regularly. Those who refused to abandon their Christian faith were executed, often through public crucifixion or incineration. smile.png

Shimabara Rebellion:

It is an uprising in southwestern Japan in 1637–1638 during the Edo period. It largely involved peasants, most of them Catholic Christians. The shogun vs Samurai Christians and peasants converted to christianity.

This certainly does stray away from some of the other demos that are in the forum. I'll download it tonight, maybe play a little bit of it if the intro isn't that long, play more tomorrow, who knows.

 

I'll be sure to give a full review in the near future.

 

EDIT: Just one problem......there's no RGSS202E.dll. That might be a problem for actually playing the game... :(

I will take a look. I am downloading right now.

 

You are right, :S I am uploading a new version, it will allow you to run in more places, and I removed 3 scripts that were not used in the game.

 

if you are using version 1.0 download this small file http://www.mediafire...i3vr647hhwuh2v0 and put it in the game folder. and it will work.

 

I am uploading version 1.1 to skip this procedure.

Titogod I am playing the game and I have to say I'm impressed, one problem though, I'm in the village and I'm trying to get the boat to get the fire flower and I have lit all the fires, won the games to win all the sake, I killed all the monsters and spiders and the guy who gives the quest to kill all the monsters and spiders keep telling me to do a good job/keep trying.

 

Also I can not enter the village elder's house and the spider next to his house on the woond wall is hard to kill because the flowers around the house are un passable, I did mange to kill it but I can't hookshot the box it droped to get it's hide.

 

But all in all I'm damn impressed with the game, am I missing some way to make up the 15,000 Ryo in order to get the boat?

 

All in all I have to give you top marks for the game play, the graphics are execlent and the story line is top notch and I love the bits of humor you have put into the game.

Thanks a lot for your nice words, I put a lot of time into this project.

 

To get more money, buy armor or weapons from one merchant, and sell it to the other one, and you make a profit :P
