Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom is an action-adventure video game with many puzzle elements developed by Game Republic and published by Namco Bandai on November 23, 2010. Although the game shares many conceptual similarities with Team Ico's The Last Guardian, Namco Bandai states that Majin and the Forsaken Kingdom "was in development long before [The] Last Guardian was announced".
A long time ago, a lone hero and a heavenly messenger brought peace to the warring lands. They then created a kingdom with the hero as its king. For centuries, the kingdom flourished.
Then, one day, a foul darkness seeped out from the palace and covered the lands in its filth. The people were swallowed whole. Civilization collapsed overnight. The few survivors fled to bordering wastelands and deserts to begin anew. Some brave souls joined together to reclaim their fallen homeland, but were thwarted when they encountered strange warriors who seemed to rise from the darkness itself. Very few survived to tell the tale.
One hundred years later… A young man, guided by the voices of migrating birds, slips past the shadow warriors into the heart of the cursed land. Silent for over a century, the kingdom slowly begins to awaken.
