In 1999, Armageddon came to the world. Japanese researchers have experimented
with genetics and biological mutations; as a result, a new race of powerful
demons known as _shiki-oni_ emerged, and in a short time has conquered the
Earth, obliterating most of human civilization.
Hayato, the young hero of the game, is a son to a human mother and the Demon
Dragon, the most powerful shiki-oni. His ultimate goal is to defeat his own
father and save the remnants of the human race.
_Shiki Oni no Koku: Ch ūgokuhen_ is an episodic game. There are no
differences between the episodes gameplay-wise or graphically; each episode
simply continues the story from the point it was left off in the end of the
The gameplay is “light” Japanese-style RPG, characteristic for many Compile
games: there are no weapons and armor; the magic system is very simple and
rudimentary; there are only very few NPCs and friendly areas, and no real
towns; most of the game is spent exploring the maze-like top-down dungeons, in
which the party of player-controlled characters (up to 4) fights enemies in
traditional turn-based combat viewed from first-person perspective. However,
unlike most Japanese RPGs of the time, the enemies are visibly wandering on
the screen, and the battle begins when there is a physical contact between
them and the player character.
The first episode follows the adventures of Hayato and his friends as they
explore their home town invaded by demons, trying to find the path that would
lead to Hayato’s father. The characters can reach level 10 in this episode.
