Description

The legend of the Golden Condor... from village to village and from town to town, everybody speak of it - somewhere, beyond forests and mountains, there lies an idyllic Golden Land, the land of eternal happiness. Many adventurers have tried to find their way to the mysterious land of the Golden Condor, but how many of them have survived the impassable mountain paths, the dark forests and caves, and the vicious monsters? You are the wanderer Shiren, and the goal of your life is to find the Golden Land. Together with your best buddy Koppa, a talking weasel, you decide to venture deep into the dungeons that lead to the land, and to try your luck there.

Furai no Shiren (The Wanderer Shiren) is a roguelike, hack-and-slash game with randomly generated dungeon areas, items, and monsters. Despite being named Fushigi no Dungeon 2 it has no relation to the storyline or characters of the first game in the series, it does however share the same style of gameplay. The movement is turn-based. You visit towns and villages where you can buy and sell supplies. The dungeons are full of various traps and monsters, and sometimes non-playable characters you can talk to, some of which can join you on your quest.

Trivia

The name of the game's protagonist, Shiren, contains a distinct irony when combined with the word furai ("wanderer") in the game's title: Furai no Shiren can be understood both as "Shiren the Wanderer" or as "A Wonderer's Ordeal", since the word shiren also means "ordeal".

The word furai itself is also slightly ambivalent: literally meaning "wanderer", the word is written with two Chinese signs, corresponding to the Chinese words feng (wind) and lai (coming); furai (in Japanese pronunciation) is literally "the one who came with the wind".
