About

Shogun & The Kid is an old school role-playing video game with classic cinema and Japanese anime story elements. It tells the story of Hiroshi Nakamura, his friend Jiro, and his son (The Kid).  Hiroshi's wife was murdered by The Shoguns, a group of merciless creatures that have enslaved humanity, and now rule over Hiroshi's world as maleficent dictators. My game inspirations include The Final Fantasy series, Ultima, Dragon's Quest, spaghetti westerns, the films of Akira Kurosawa, Ninja Scroll, Lone Wolf & Cub, and many more. I expect the Demo for the game to be completed by the end of this year, and to complete the final game by the end of 2020 at my current pace. If the campaign is a success I hope to be able to have all original art, and music for the game. Your pledges are greatly appreciated. 

Planned features (subject to change):

  • Class system with prestige (subclass) specializations
  • Craft and upgrade weapons and items
  • Weather system with seasons
  • Large game world to explore 
  • Recruit dozens of party members 
  • Vehicles (Horses, boats, airships, etc.)
  • 100+ enemies

  • Mini games and activites like fishing, farming, etc.
  • Virtues and alignment system
  • New Game+ mode for added replay value
  • Hidden missions and secret areas
  • Can become werewolves, vampires, and other supernatural beings.

Note: This section will be updated occasionally with new information as the project progresses. 

Risks and challenges

Designing a large scale RPG video game as an individual creator is a daunting task to be sure, but I feel I am up to the challenge. I am 100% focused on the game ,and have no other major commitments at this time. I have been creating small games for years, but nothing professional until this project. I have a background in video production, and music that I think will help me to give this project the cinematic feel I'm looking for.
