The Iji wiki last edited by BeachThunder on 09/21/13 09:35AM View full history

Story

Earth is under attack by evil aliens called "Tasen". It's up to the cyborg Iji to save the remaining people of the planet. She is guided by her brother Dan through loudspeakers that are placed throughout the levels. Dan convices Iji to call on an alien taskforce consisting of a different alien race, the Komato, to help Iji wipe out the Tasen. But the Komato are not the salvation that Dan and Iji thought they were. In actuality they, also, try to destroy the Earth and all its inhabitants, because their sworn enemies the Tasen are there - fleeing from the ruthless Komato.

Gameplay

The combat in Iji is real time, each enemy has a Nano-shield that can be taken down a number of ways before the actual enemy can be defeated, once the enemy is defeated Iji can assimilate the remnants of their nanoshield to gain experience.

Iji can access 8 basic weapons unlocked through skill points and these weapons can be combined to create new more powerful weapons provided that Iji's crack stat is high enough.

e.g. combining the Shotgun and Machine gun will give you the Buster gun, a more powerful automatic shotgun which uses machinegun ammo.

Influences

Daniel Remar, creator of Iji, has admitted that System Shock 2 was a major influence, despite the game being almost nothing like System Shock 2.

The game also has echoes of Castlevania and Metroid and utilizes some basic cover mechanics from games like kill.switch
