Into Liquid Sky
13 November 2004
  • Excerpt: 19th Century Japan. The Koruo and Akadama clans are in the middle of a turf war in the Rokkotsu Pass. As the ronin (masterless samurai) Kenji, you wander into the pass and become another piece of the story. During the next two days, you can either join one clan or the other, or neither.
