Story Plot:
"The game is set in Nippon classic history, and begins with a flashback to events 100 years prior to the game's present, and describes how Shiranui, a pure white wolf, and Nagi, a swordsman, together fought the eight-headed demon Orochi to save Kamiki Village and the maiden Nami, Nagi's beloved. Shiranui and Nagi are unable to defeat Orochi but manage to seal the demon away. In the game's present, Susano, a descendant of Nagi, accidentally breaks Orochi's seal, and the demon escapes and curses the lands, sapping the life from every living thing. Sakuya, the wood sprite and guardian of Kamiki Village, calls forth Amaterasu, the sun goddess, known to the villagers as the reincarnation of the white wolf Shiranui, and pleads her to remove the curse that covers the land. Accompanied by the inch-high artist Issun, Amaterasu is able to restore the land to its former beauty.Throughout the journey, Amaterasu is hounded by Waka, a strange but powerful individual that seems to have the gift of foresight, and further teases Amaterasu and Issun to his own mysterious ends. Additionally, Amaterasu locates several Celestial Gods who have hidden in the constellations that bestow upon the goddess powers of the Celestial Brush to aid in her quest."

   Okay Okami is a PlayStation 2 and Wii game developed by Clover Studio. Okami is a cel-shaded game with a ink and wash painting design to it. The game was relesed on 2006 in Japan and 2007 in North America. It's a single-player action-adventure game where you take a paint brush (in the game t's called " The Celestial Brush") and paint your on powers.  You play as a sun goddess named Okami Amaterasu in form of a white wolf, who with her friend Issun travels from village to village, fighting evil and restoring the world back to its natural settings.
   When I started the game I was amazed that a game like this even existed. I won't give anything away because it's that great. I Love when I can turn night into day by take my paint brush and drawing a circle, then sunlight appears! This game is packed with so many things to do. Even when your're finshed the main game, you still have more to do. I highly recommend this game for everyone.

I remember playing Okami for the PS2, it was a great game. Using the celestial brush was one of them most original game mechanics I've ever come across. The only problem I had with the game was the fake voice-overs, I found them kind of annoying.

sounds almost "Final-Fantasy-like". cool write up.
