The Sun Rises (太陽は昇る)

by wfgodbold

Okami follows the adventures of the Sun Goddess Amaterasu, taken wolf form, in a Japanese pun (大神 (okami, great god) vs. 狼 (okami, wolf)).

The game’s art style is distinct; the entire world and all of the characters are rendered to look like they were painted in the sumi-e ink style, and it makes for an amazing experience.

Amaterasu possesses a giant brush which the player can use to call up wind, cut enemies or certain objects in half, or use various other abilities. She must fight enemies, solve puzzles, and learn why the land has been cursed and how to lift it.

It’s a fun game, with a unique art style. Unfortunately, it didn’t sell all that well.
