In Blind Fate: Edo No Yami, players enter a dark and machine-filled sci-fi Edo period as the Shogunate rules Japan, with their power and prestige rooted deep within society. Your mantra? Follow orders, obey your overlords, and kill. That was up until your sight was taken away in a deadly conflict, now nothing is what it seems.
As you re-awaken, the balance of life changes in an instant. Relying solely on your damaged Sensors, you must learn to survive and heed the advice of mentor Tengu – Become stronger and dive head-first through a path of rage, in this insane and fantastical world of cybernetics and ancient mythology. Everything you once knew is turned upside down, as you relearn what once made you a skilled, samurai assassin.
Will you succumb to the loss of your eyesight or will you overcome your difficulties, trust in your newfound technology, and defeat all those you meet in the crossroads during this tale of Blind Fate?
Features Blind Fate
- Your Sensors pierce the curtain of the past. Without your eyesight, you must rely on sound, smell, and heat to navigate the world, uncovering centuries of lore and guiding Yami on his vengeful, story-driven journey as ancient memories pave the way to see the present.
- Discover your new found abilities to detect your enemies and identify their weak spots, then crush them with lightning speed. Even blind, you are unstoppable!
- Make use of ‘The Mask of the Oni’ to create a simulation of the world around you, by tuning into the environmental data from a world now passed. Tread carefully however: as the data at your disposal can either lead you to victory or deceive you with echoes of memories that no longer exist.
- Discover the story of dozens of robotic versions of Japanese folklore creatures. Find their weaknesses, let metal meet metal, and destroy each one with devastating finishers!
