Team Tori, LLC


In Tori, players fly as a bird through mystical floating islands capturing the musical spirits of the objects that inhabit them.

As players soar through the mystical islands of Otokai they are greeted by countless icons and themes stemming from Japanese culture. Through interacting with Kami, the musical spirits of the objects that cover the land, players bring about events and storylines based on tales of Shintoism. Tori aims to accurately and effectively communicate these tales to give western players a greater and deeper understanding of Japanese culture and some of the values that are held there.
