Introduction to the Game


"Nobunaga's Shadow" is a story-driven game made in RPG Maker MV. It's a mix of light J-RPG gameplay with a little bit of Visual Novel-like elements thrown in the mix. The story is based around the concept of alternative history, as it features a researched setting of Feudal Japan, but explores an alternative turn of events, and also allows for player choices which lead to multiple endings.

You can find it on Steam:
