Game Description & Reviews:
Giftpia is an adventure game developed by Skip and published by Nintendo. Conceived and directed by Kenichi Nishi, Giftpia uses the theme of helping and growing from his other works like Moon: Remix RPG Adventure and LOL: Lack of Love (he also worked on Super Mario RPG, and Chrono Trigger, and later directed Chibi Robo). It was released in 2003. Giftpia has a spritualism vs. capitalism theme to its plot, though it's very comical. The game takes place on Nanashi island where a coming of age ceremony takes place for every boy that will lead them into manhood. It's an expensive traditional ritual and is treated as a law. Pokkle - A young boy who's just at the age of the ceremony - over-slept and missed his coming of age ritual. He gets arrested. When released out of jail, Mayer the mayor of Nanashi island - a man obssesed with the island's progress and financial gains - tells Pokkle that he must have another ritual and that this time he must pay 5,000,000 Mane for it. Later he meets up with island loner Ziggy - a very religious, yet a bit hippie-ish man. Ziggy laughs at the notion that the only way into manhood is an expensive ceremony. He tells Pokkle of another way of becoming a man. Pokkle needs to offer food (especially mushrooms) as sacrifice for the great fairy to get empty gems and fill those gems with people's wishes and grant them. As Pokkle, the player needs to help the people of the island and help Pokkle become a man. The more wishes he grants, the more he grows and the more he can stay up late at night and the player can explore furhter into the island. Or just pay the extremely high 5,000,000 Mane for a different ending (but not the main one). Up to you. -----I've been wanting to play this game since 2003 and was finally able to thanks to this site and a fan script translation. I wasn't disappointed. From the situations to the soundtrack, Giftpia is a great game. Pretty trippy and neat too. ------ Giftpia is completely in Japanese and was never released in English (though Nintendo did consider it).
