Briganty – The Roots of Darkness

Briganty is a H-ARPG for the PC-98 which was also ported to the PC in 1999 by its developer, Giga.

The prologue is actually pretty funny. You play the role of Gady, a black magician who is not only good at fire magic, but also martial arts. Gady is an adventurer and has a angel/fairy/sprite called Leena following him.

The story starts when the two are walking in the woods, very hungry. Then, they see a girl sitting on the ground. Gady runs to her to see if she’s OK. The girl said she was robbed by bandits and needed money for her journey. And she was willing to give herself to him. Leena became suspicious but Gady, who is called by Leena as “The Pervert of the Century”, agreed without hesitation. Leena went angry of course, but Gady wraps her with his jacket so she shuts up while he has fun. Gady somehow went unconscious and when he woke up he found out that the girl was gone and stole all his money.

Leena started flaming Gady for losing all the food money, but anyways they walked on and came across a lake and decided to go for a drink. However, they caught a glimpse of a girl taking a bath there. The girl saw them and of course gave Gady a good beating. Gady went unconscious for a second time and when he recovered he found himself in an inn, in a town called Galia. He went downstairs to the pub and sees a girl seeking for help. The girl turns out to be the girl at the lake. Her name is Sephina, a master of the chain sword. She explained that she and her sister were exploring a cave when her sister discovered a sword. After getting the sword, Sephina’s sister went berserk and started attacking anyone who came near her. Gady agreed to help and Sephina asked what he wanted as reward. Gady said no money is necessary but a kiss in the mouth would do. Undoubtedly, Gady got the third beating he deserved. And this is how it all begins.

Briganty is a horizontal scroll action game like Castlevania with RPG elements added to it. As you beat up enemies you will gain experience. Through that you will level up which raises your status and you become stronger. Aside from jumping and punching, Gady has lots of other moves but you will have to find out how to make these moves. In addition, occasionally, Sephina will join in and you can control her as the playable character.
