Action, rice and Japanese mythology
Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin takes you into the world of Japanese mythology. Japanese history is combined with the legends that come from this country. While the heroine wanders through the detailed landscapes, she meets different types of demons. The action part is mixed with a simulation for growing rice.
You slip into the role of the proud but lonely harvest goddess Sakuna, who has been banished to a dangerous island where outcast people live. Sakuna tames the island by fighting demons and using farm tools as weapons. She also has a heavenly scarf. With this magical item she is able to reach distant platforms and enemies.
