The Sword and the Fox or Ken to kitsune is a story about a young swordsman named junko who goes to seek sword left in the supposedly haunted castle of a former emperor and meets princess Hayami, a kitsune beast women Who now lives there. Your goal is to guide Junko through this journey to find the sword and find out who this kitsune is and why she invited you in.

This is my Entry to the #tyranojam Game Jam. I hope you all enjoy playing this.

note: I'd recommend downloading it to play rather than a browser for now. for some reason despite being resource lite, it likes to lag allot when i have text with the text sound script is incredibly slow on browser play for some reason.

update: 5/10/2017: Thank you for the Daily Feature and frontpage feature. I really appreciate it.

update 5/14/2017: I have removed the typing sound script which should make the game run smoother on browsers and not abismally slow like before.

Amazing story and great graphics. Certainly worth the read, while it's quick. Just a shame it's not a full RPG, more a visual novel. If there'd be a bigger storyline to follow and actually play through it would be even better!

Not my type of game to be honest. The story was great overall but I would have liked to interact with the characters a bit more, possibly have a few more choices for the answers, instead of just the "yes" or "no" answers. Was hoping it'd be a platform game.

Thanks for the feedback. I original vision is an RPG of sorts. So, in that case, you will definitely get to interact with the characters more there.

Was great, but seriously you better make a sequel. The story ended with me wanting more. Would like to see human version of the princess.

Not my type of game, but I must admit I was sold on the visuals alone. The pixel art is stunning. The backgrounds really suck you in.

The character portraits are also charming, but the difference between their cartoony style and the environments is a bit off-putting. Both of these two visual elements are great on their own-the character portraits are packed with personality- they just don't come together all that well.

The music gets me in a great mood, but there was this issue when it would cut off abruptly, I'm assuming it can be easily fixed in another version.

The writing was fun, sometimes the character portraits made weird faces during dialogue, but nothing major enough to make me lose that sense of immersion.

All in all a really fun project that captured me and got me trying something I wouldn't touch otherwise.

Please keep making awesome stuff, I fell in love with your pixel art.
