Isou is a spiky-haired farmer from the town of Saki where he lives with his wife Marin. When Isou gets caught up in political intrigue, he leaves the simple life behind and gets caught up in a fractious war between two countries.

Windaria was an animated movie that was released in Japan 22 years ago. It's unlikely to have much "brand" recognition or street cred amongst the jaded youth of today but Compile Heart has licensed the property for a dungeon exploration game on the NDS. Inomata Mutsumi designed the characters and the hero Isou appears to have influenced the look of a certain somber hero with blonde locks and a big sword.

The promotional material for the game touts randomly generated dungeons, real time action, and an involving storyline that stays true to the movie. The action takes place on the top screen while a map gets drawn out on the touch screen as Isou explores dungeons. The game system is based on Chunsoft's Mystery Dungeon engine which most recently served as the basis for Dramatic Dungeon Sakura Taisen. The movement and battles in the game are turn-based so that monsters and party members move in concert with each other. For example, every move you make governs the monster's move. If you don't move, no one else moves in the game world. Take one step forward and the monster takes one step.

Funny that as I uploaded it and saw it on the portal just fine.
Even so you could've just added it to my post without removing the whole thread

Well, yes, true (I didn't see boxart in yours - shitty IE?)...I was planning on experimenting with Screenshots and the portal.
Sorry if I pissed you off, yo.

I think the biggest problem with these randomly generated dungeon games is that the dungeons are so very very very bland...

So played through PMD and i dont find myself wanting to play another one again
