A while back, I created a nifty 2D Dungeon Crawler on Codepen.io as part of the FreeCodeCamp curriculum. It’s based off of one of my favorite parts of Japanese history; the betrayal of Oda Nobunaga and the subsequent march for revenge by Toyotomi Hideyoshi.

In short, in the year 1582, amidst Nobunaga’s quest to unify Japan, Hideyoshi was off battling the Mori Clan. Finding the battle a bit too much to handle, the general requested reinforcements from Nobunaga, who quickly assembled troops and made way to aid Hideyoshi. En route, Nobunaga stopped at one of his usual resting areas, Honno Temple. It was here that another of Nobunaga’s generals staged a coup, successfully forcing Nobunaga to commit suicide.

Upon discovering Nobunaga’s betrayal, Hideyoshi quickly made peace with the Mori Clan and marched toward Kyoto, where he would overtake and defeat Mitsuhide and his forces. Although there is speculation Hideyoshi may have been involved in the betrayal of Nobunaga, I like to think it was just one bro enraged and hell-bent on revenge for another bros betrayal.

In any case, you can check out the pen below, or at this link to the Codepen.io page :

You can read more about the Honno-ji Incident at the Honno-ji incident Wikipedia page. . It does a much better job of explaining the incident than I ever could :).
