Kyoto Cosmology

Cosmology of Kyoto is a video game that was released in 1995. It is a first-person perspective video game.

The game takes place in Heiankyo (today's Kyoto), which was the capital of Japan in the 10th and 11th centuries. This was the Heian period, a historically vibrant time in Japanese culture.

During the game, the player will encounter characters typical of the time - and may die. Never fear: reincarnation is possible and even likely.

While playing you will learn about the Heian Period and get a chance to explore.

What you are exploring is ancient Kyoto.

To play, you click on hotspots and text options when and where appropriate. At the beginning of the game, you are born and must take the clothes from a corpse close at hand to continue.

Genji: Dawn of the Samurai.

During the game you will be attacked by evil demons and robbers - and you will die. Then you will go into one of the "realms of incarnation," depending on you good you were during your "life." Then you must start over: once again a newborn that must take the clothes from another dead person.

As you get deeper and deeper into the game - and hopefully improve - you will learn tricks and ways of avoiding death. At you do so, you will make your way through the city.

The characters in the game are real-life characters who lived in Kyoto in the past.

Cosmology of Kyoto is unfortunately no longer available.

However, a similar game is now the very popular Genji: Dawn of the Samurai.

Genji is a "3rd-person action RPG set in medieval Japan around the 12th century." It features supernatural powers, Yoshitsune, Benkei, and the fearsome Heishi clan.
