Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke (roughly, "over my dead body,") is a dungeon crawler RPG where the player controls a clan of warriors, cursed to die young, over several generations as they try to defeat the demon that cursed them. Aside from combat, the player must also manage the clans resources, and ensure a new generation is ready to take over when the curse kills their parents. Set in ancient Japan, the game is heavily influenced by traditional Japanese art and mythology.
Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke was developed by Alfa System along with MARS Corp and was published by Sony for the PlayStation in 1999. In 2007 the game was released on PSN as a PSOne Classic and due to the popularity of that release a remake was made for the PlayStation Portable in 2011. A sequel to Ore no Shikabane wo Koete Yuke was created for the PlayStation Vita in 2014.
