Target Acquired: Zwei: The Arges Adventure

If you prefer the Japanese side of action-RPG's, complete with its spikey-haired protagonists, chibi characters, fat kittens, and heavy leanings toward the pastel section of the color palette, then you may want to check out Zwei: The Arges Adventure from Nihon Falcom, which just made its US release. The game is the first entry in the series (released simply as Zwei!! in Japan) and a direct predecessor to Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection, and if those words make sense to you, then you probably already know about this game. The game is set on the continent of Arges and features Pokkle and Pipiro, a pair of step-siblings who find themselves thrust out of their daily routines and into a grand quest as they search for a set six of holy idols that have been stolen from a shrine. They're not trying to save the world, however, but are in search of fortune and glory, as a huge reward has been offered for the idols' return. The game features plenty of silly humor with an overall lighthearted feel, a food-based leveling system, and a handful of minigames.

The game is now available for PC via Steam, GOG, and Humble Store.
