The Sickle Upon Sekigahara: What Is It?

Our debut title, The Sickle Upon Sekigahara, is a short visual novel where you play as a young Kobayakawa Hideaki. The game takes place mostly between 1597 and 1600 in the Warring States Era of Japan. The Warring States Era, known as Sengoku Jidai in Japanese, lasted from the outset of the Onin War in 1467-1477 until Tokugawa Ieyasu’s complete unification of the land in 1615 and his subsequent start of the Edo Period (1615-1868).

Historically Tokugawa Ieyasu achieved victory at the battle of Sekigahara in 1600, setting up the coffin which he eventually nailed shut fifteen years later in his conquest of the island nation. Much of that victory comes from the defection of Kobayakawa Hideaki, the young lord of the Kobayakawa clan.

The family emblem, or Kamon, of the Kobayakawa clan during Hideaki’s reign was a pair of sickles, or Kama, inter-crossed.

Hence the title ‘The Sickle Upon Sekigahara’ because your decisions will decide the fate of the nation. As Hideaki you will see both sides of the conflict and be forced to decide whether to join the Western Army or defect to the Eastern Army. With either choice you will have to deal with the repercussions of your decision.

Coming out in the 1st Quarter of 2020, check out The Sickle Upon Sekigahara everywhere it’s available!
