G.O.D – An Earthbound Clone? [Video]

For quite a while I wanted to make a series of something – blog posts, videos about obscure games. Games that never got much attention for whatever reason, and particularly those that never left their home country of (usually) Japan.

Well, the first video in this series is here!

一九九九 七月  恐怖の大王が降りた

1999, July. The king of fear descended upon us.

G.O.D ~Mezame yo to yobu koe ga kikoe~ (A voice calling for an awakening) is a role-playing game, first released in 1996 for Super Famicom. It was never released in English, and even in Japan it remained a fairly obscure title.

With that said, however, there are few interesting things about this game, notably – its story is set in modern-day Japan (which is quite rare for a game not in the Shin Megami Tensei series) and it has quite a few similarities to an SNES cult classic: Earthbound.

The video goes into a bit more detail about what this game is, what it isn’t, and just what it is about.
