A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

The Sun Rises!

Kura5 is a non-canonical fan game for the Boktai series and it's successor, Lunar Knights.

The game stars two characters that you can control: Annie, a Bounty Hunter from the San Miguel Guild, and Emil, a Vampire Swordsman whose power grows in shadows. The two must overcome their differences and fight together if they can hope to face the otherworldly threat that looms over the earth.

In place of the solar sensor, Kura5 game includes a new feature called "WeatherSync". Using your computer's IP Address, the game can use local weather data and sync it to the game's own weather. But beware! The forces of darkness can bend the weather to their command...


In place of the solar sensor, Kura5 uses a new feature called "WeatherSync". WeatherSync gets your location using your IP Address, then gathers local weather data based on where you play the game. But watch out! Immortals have the power to override the weather within their domain until defeated.

For WeatherSync to work, please make sure that you are not connected to a VPN or proxy. WeatherSync will turn itself off if it cannot connect. To disable WeatherSync, go to the options menu from the titlescreen.

Nice demo, though I think Emil's Shadow Binding needs a bit better duration, his combo needs a bit less end lag, I found it easier to just use 1 attack, wait, 1 attack so I didn't combo, and you need to get more sun for your time(I was playing at Noon with WeatherSync off and was only getting 2 bars) I know its winter and all but still, it shouldn't be that bad, I mean I can get a good 3 or 4 from reality on Boktai2 in goodish weather right now so it feels wrong

Also loved some of the secrets, David Iroquois Pliskin was my immediate giggle, and at some point I might dig around for more then just the few readable graves

Oh yeah and there's some issues with hitboxes lingering too long, namely sometimes pools of darkness will keep striking you even if you get knocked away, and mummy explosions hurting even when the graphic fades, speaking of mummies, in Boktai the state of burning can actually stack, increasing the damage with each flame on them

Very impressive composition. I'll keep a close eye on it, the weather thing is very nice :)
