Ooh! Is that what Shadowgate is?  I always classified it as RPG looking from the screenshots. :o
And I'll leave it at that!

Awesome, I've been waiting for this! I tried the JPN version a while back and thought it was a really cool mixture of digital comic and RPG, can't wait to play through it in English.

Played up to the 3 towers so far, it's a really fun game. Lots of thanks for all these quirky games.

I noticed Snark really has a thing for these Japanese adventure games. Excellent, I love these sorts of games.

Hey this game is really fantastic! Its way more RPG than meets the eye. Really good definately a one of a kind game, have never played a text adventure with so much RPG elements in it. I dare to say its a 50/50 RPG/Text Adventure, but im not far enough to make that a statement yet.

Thanks for all the feedback everyone! 

@Streettrash: You're welcome and  thanks for playing them! Past the three towers it gets even stranger!

@Validus: Thanks! I always thought the text adventure +RPG combo was a novel thing, and the Indian theme is definitely unique.

@Dank...Thanks :)! Now is the medal 24 k or plated? :P

@ kingofcrusher Thanks! I was glad to finally get this one out! The original famicom was definitely cool!

@9voltKappa: Thanks for your comment! :)

@reyvgm: Thanks I think :P Aren't you the video game museum guy?

@Andrius: thanks! Yes I thought stuff like Colossal Caves and Amstrad and c64 text adventures were fun,
and the added graphics and RPG elements of NES are neat.

@JediQuest Master: May the force be with you dude.

snark, if you like the text+graphics type RPGs, you might wanna take a look at the PC-98 and similar machines, they have quite a few of those.  The ones with static borders, or entire thirds of the screen taken up by a graphic of a girl for the entire game! :woot!:
