One final exam down this morning, another final paper handed in, all I have left to do is sit my Japanese final on Wednesday and I can look forward to a nice winter break.
Mind you, in an effort to sabotage the studying I need to accomplish between now and then, I finished off one game (Boing! Docomodake) and started another, that being Muramasa the Demon Blade. This is a Wii game, and I don’t play many of those, so it’s a nice change of pace.
Honestly, though, after the last few weeks of school, anything would be a nice change of pace.
I haven’t gotten very far into it, but it’s awfully pretty. It really does show off how impressive hand-drawn sprite animation can be.
SPEAKING of hand-drawn sprite animation, there’s a character named Kongiku in the game.
She’s a fox spirit and seems like she’s got the hots for your character, who is an ancient evil blahblahblah demon thing currently inhabiting the body of a cute and heavily armed girl.
Kongiku has an idle animation that deserved sharing.
Ahh, Japan, you warm my perverted heart.
Boing! Docomodake, by the way, is a pleasant enough puzzle/platform combo. It’s not a terribly challenging or terribly long game, but it’s a good pick-up-and-play-for-10-minutes game featuring, well, mushroom mascot characters.
