Os•manˈɒz mən, ˈɒs-, ɒsˈmɑn(n.)
1259–1326, Turkish emir 1299–1326: founder of the Ottoman dynasty.
Osman, released in Japan as Cannon-Dancer, is a side-scrolling action platforming game produced by Mitchell Corp. that was released exclusively as a coin-operated arcade game in 1996. Many ex-Capcom staff including Kouichi Yotsui, worked on the original arcade version of Strider and designed Osman as an unofficial sequel to Strider. Yotsui directed both titles. In contrast to Strider's futuristic Kazakh-Soviet setting, Osman is set in a neon-lit cyberpunk Arabian setting, while Strider Hiryu is replaced by a Middle Eastern protagonist named Osman who fights without any weapons. 1UP.com included the game in its "Games to Play Before You Die" list. The game's bizarre plot supposedly mocks director Kouichi Yotsui's experience at Capcom after Strider.
