Jonah Weingarten’s Ninja Brigade
Games Lift 2020
A fast-paced pixel art metroidvania, where the musician Jonah Weingarten is drawn to feudal Japan via an arcade station. Once there, he must face vicious yokai hordes and beat the game to return to his own era.
The world of Ninja Brigade is set in ancient Japan and features various places. Among them, the castle and landscape of the Edo-jō, a dark cave that has fallen into oblivion, a sinister graveyard forest that turns into a mountain plagued by winds, and even hell itself.
The special thing about Ninja Brigade is the onification of the world. Onification is the infection with demonic energy, causing the world and its population to become unbalanced and even more savage. However, Jonah can use this energy to unleash his inner Oni.
Jonah can learn new abilities during his adventure to be able to face the dangers he is confronted with.
The world of Ninja Brigade is home to a wide variety of Yokai. To defeat them in action-oriented battles, Jonah uses both the speed and agility of a ninja and the strength and brutality of an oni.
Each region is guarded by the largest and most vicious Yokai. Defeat this one to advance and steal some of its power.
