Jiro is a 2D, side-scrolling beat ‘em game focused on dynamic and visceral God of War-style combat in a feudal Japanese setting. Using powerful moves derived from insane hallucinations brought about by the trauma of war, Jiro must fight his way through writhing, unpredictable levels in an attempt to rescue his kidnapped son and avenge the death of his wife. Set during a tenuous peace around the time of the Siege of Osaka, Jiro must achieve his goals without re-igniting the war, betraying his lord, or losing control of his sanity.
