Cosmology of Kyoto : a visual mindscape of Old Japan / 京都千年物語 / Kyōto Chitose monogatari / Kyōto sennen monogatari (Quest-horror/1993-95/Win16-Mac)

1st DL: Western release.
2nd DL: Original Japanese release for Macs only. Can select between English and Japanese.
3rd DL: Japanese re-release. Mac/Windows hybrid. English language removed.

A phantasmagorical journey through the history and myth of 10th century Japan.

The richness is almost overwhelming; there is the sense that the resources of this game are limitless and that no two players would have the same experience. I have been exploring the ancient city in spare moments for two weeks now, and doubt that I have even begun to scratch the surface. This is the most beguiling computer game I have encountered, a seamless blend of information, adventure, humor, and imagination - the gruesome side-by-side with the divine.

This was a big hit at MacWorld when it came out. The violent images were stunning for the time. It's from the glory days of Director-based titles.
