Tao (? lit. the way) is an RPG developed by Pax Softnica, which worked with Nintendo on games like Mother, and published by Vap exclusively in Japan in 1989.

The game concerns a spiritual wanderer who is attempting to avert the end of days predicted by Nostradamus in a near future which has already been wracked with disaster. In order to do this, he must invoke the powers of various different religions and belief systems, including those from Hindu, Buddhist, Christianity and other faiths. The game is known for its abstract and unusual personality.

While the game was never officially localized into English, a fan translation was released in 2011 which can be found here.
