Embark on a life-changing, story-driven journey with three protagonists that have diverse backgrounds and learn Japanese to save the world!

Shujinkou (主人公), or main protagonist, is a one of a kind, in-development 2D action JRPG platformer that is completely plot-driven, yet facilitates Japanese learning through its core gameplay mechanics, minigames, and interactions with NPCs.

With an amazing team of 8 developers (and possibly more, soon to come), please look forward to seeing more details about a project that fuses multiple music genres, the classic Japanese Ukiyo e art style, and story, gameplay elements that are reminiscent of the Fire Emblem and Shin Megami Tensei series!

ABOUT THE KANAKAE SYSTEM

The following graphic explains how the KANAKAE system will work!

ENEMY WEAKNESSES (HIRAGANA)

Enemies will have a couple of weaknesses due to the way they are spelled; this works in conjunction with the plot (displayed below for convenience). For example, 鬼 (おに) Demon is weak to two different types of KANA Orbs that your three protagonists, Shu, Jin, and Kou will be able to find throughout the world of Shujinkou and the land of Genya. This means that using the お or に hiragana will deal massive amounts of damage to the おに (Oni) demon.

Another example would be 兎 (うさぎ) Rabbit, which has three different weaknesses. The thing to keep note of though, is that most levels will have your KANA Orbs set, meaning that you may not be able to use one or two of the three orbs that Rabbit is weak to. You will need to determine which of the five KANA Orbs you are assigned is effective and use that to defeat the millions of Rabbits and other monsters that lie in wait!

What about Katakana and Kanji? We will leave that for a future article. Please follow the development of this game by signing up on the mailing list Projectsjk.co or watch this game on IndieDB.
