Does anyone remember this game?

This game is very old and got forgotten by bigger titles. This is one of my favorite game though it has aged horribly. The soundtrack and the artstyle is what truly shines in this game. I don't know if the developer still exist but hopefully they make a sequel though its unlikely :smileysad:

Always meant to pick up a copy of Okage but sadly I just never got around to it. The box art was fantastic and really made me want to get the game. Just got lost in the sea of great PS2 RPGs.

Okage: Shadow King is definitely one of my all-time favorites in the field of role-playing. While Zener Works (the developer) didn't do much of anything besides Okage, their destiny was left without the untold sequel to this forgotten classic. It seems to be unknown whether this internal team at Sony is still active or not.

I remember my friend gave me this for free and I could see why. By the time this game came out I had over 80 ps1/ps2 titles in my library.

This was my least favorite, while the story telling was great all I can remember was the lack of combat mechanics. One thing that completely turned me off was this was a 3 member turn base battle system. That's great! My favorite type. But when I get a game over just because my main character dies and the other members are in tip top shape I get a little frustrated

I remember buying this game around the same time as the original Dark Cloud. I liked it a lot actually but I don't believe I actually finished it, probably because I got so into Dark Cloud and just didn't have time. I must look in my collection to see if this game is still in my possession! :smileyhappy:

While I wouldn't say a PS2 game is old I am intrigued by this title. It just looks interesting, and the name rings a bell. What are your thoughts on it? Is it worth hunting down?

ya, it's a decent game that shouldn't cost more than 15-20$
unless the price went up recently...

I'd love to play the full game, but I've never had the luck of finding a copy. I loved the demo when I played it years ago, but I simply couldn't find the game in stores. Maybe sometime in the future, hopefully.
