World War 2 was devastating to those on both sides, and this is clearly evident to Seita and Setsuko, two Japanese children struggling to survive in the midst of the war. In this hack, Setsuko has gotten lost in the forests of Japan and Seita must travel through the dangerous Japanese landscape to reunite with the only true family he has left. He needs to make use of his umbrella and stone weapons to take out the vicious animal population, as well as defend himself from angry adults out to keep him from saving his sister. He must also be aware of American bombing runs and the falling firebombs that plague his every waking moment. Can you help Seita and Setsuko achieve the happy ending they’ve looked forward to their entire life?

Almost every graphic has been changed to fit the feel of the original Ghibli movie and make you feel like Seita fighting to save his sister's life. The most current version is V0.99, and is, for now, the most that can be done in regards to graphics.

I have to say, my first thought when I saw this was "Yikes"

What do you mean by "yikes"? Like in tone or in opinion or what?

Yikes. Yeah that's a sea of emotions that I'm not dealing with.

Imagine if this romhack was released as an actual game for kids back in the day lol.

Here Timmy, why don't you contemplate the death of your loved ones as a reward for finishing this light-hearted video game!

+1 to the hack creator being a sadist.
