Samurai Mech サムライ・メック preserved!
I’ve been digging up old Macintosh games, and this search has rested in the website for the classic Japanese game #samuraimechcoming back online after over a decade! Thanks Ritsuko! (patreon.com/posts/48174477) (samuraimech.net) Samurai Mech サムライ・メック is a Japanese sci-fi RPGs set in a future-medieval-space Japan. You assume the role of the eponymous Samurai Mech over the course of 40h of exploration/battle/puzzle gameplay.
You can practice your swordsmanship at the dojo, and upgrade your Samurai Mech suit with parts obtained through winning battles. The first game has a whole city to explore whilst you solve a mystery around a group of ninjas.
In the sequel サムライ・メックII・天 you are a bounty hunter in an archipelago colony at the edge of the universe. An ancient castle, an amusement park, an adult ballroom and a giant corporation. New scenario, freedom, mech system, combat, and colour/mono graphics!
Here isSaumrai Mech running on my 1992 Macintosh Classic, using System 7.1.0 with Japanese Language Kit installed.
