90s Hip-Hop Infused JRPG Orangeblood Now Available On PC

Not your vanilla JRPG, Orangeblood blends gangster grooves and procedurally-generated gear with a fresh 90s aesthetic.

Orangeblood, Japanese indie-developer Grayfax Software’s JRPG love letter to 90s hip-hop music, is now available on Steam.

Published by PLAYISM, the game’s story takes place at the end of the 20th century on the man-made island, New Koza, situated off the coast of Okinawa. Players assume the role of Vanilla, a prisoner who’s been freed to undertake a secret mission. Her quest will pit her against feuding underworld gangs, robots, and more. The game features tons of procedurally generated weapons with randomized stats to use against your enemies, and you’ll need to time your reloads carefully to keep from being overwhelmed by the opposition. Thankfully, you’re never too far from helpful vending machines where you can exchange your hard-earned yen for fresh gear to help Vanilla gain the upper hand.

“I’ve worked for years to create a funky fresh RPG setting melding classic hip-hop vibes with Japanese cultural traits like vending machines on every street corner,” said Grayfax, sole developer of Orangeblood. “I’m looking forward to seeing how people react to New Koza and the twists and turns of Vanilla’s story while enjoying the extra spice added by procedurally generated gear.”


Orangeblood is available now on Steam for $19.99. Additionally, a bundle is available, which includes both the game and the OST, for a limited discounted price of $26.98.
