Edo — what we now know today as Tokyo, Japan — was a thriving city with an estimated population of one million, half townsfolk and half samurai. With a huge shopping culture, Edo's main district, Nihonbashi, was lined with shops, selling kimonos, rice, and much more.

Nihonbashi is the focus of IKI: A Game of EDO Artisans, which brings you on a trek through the famed street of old Tokyo. Hear the voices of Nihonbashi Bridge's famous fish market. Meet the professionals, who carry out 700­-800 jobs. Enter the interactivity of the vendors and shoppers. Become one with the townsfolk.

One of the primary professions in the world of Edo is the artisan. All of the Edo artisans uses their own skill of trade to support the townspeople's lives. In this game, not only are there artisans, but street vendors, sellers at the shops, and other professions unique to this time and age. Meet the puppet masters, who put on a show. Meet the ear cleaners that people would queue up for.

The objective of this game is to become the annual Edoite, best personifying what is known as "IKI", an ancient philosophy believed to be the ideal way of living among people in Edo. Knowing the subtleties of human nature, being refined and attractive — these are all characterestics of a true IKI master.
