OverviewOverview

Okami (Okamiden on Nintendo DS) is an unusual action-adventure. Combat is via interactions that are achieved with brush strokes rather than weapons. It has a unique visual style that invites you to inhabit its painted world with brushstrokes of your own. Whether in combat or bringing new life to the flora and fauna, Okami is an epic saga built around a unique location that needs to be painted back to the multicoloured world it once was.
