Synopsis

Plot

Following the plot of James Clavell's novel, you take the role of John Blackthorne, a 17th century British sailor. After getting yourself stranded in Japan, you struggle to make it to the top of the Japanese society.

Notes

Straying from the usual Infocom design, the game is very linear, being split into 17 smaller sections, each of which must be solved in order.

I seem to recall forking out an exorbitant amount for this one. A huge disappointment back then, and a recent replay only confirmed this. The writing is excellent, but the interactivity seems like an afterthought.

And don't forget that the writing wasn't Infocom's, but Clavell's - almost all of the text was (reputedly - I haven't read the book, but people who have confirm it) taken directly from his book.
