Gameplay[]

In this game, the player explores the field to progress. It is a Metroidvania-style game, in which the player unlocks new areas with skills and items that they obtain through exploration. Moreover, they must overcome puzzles, traps, elite units, boss fights, and other various obstacles while navigating the field.

Story[]

The story is about how one day, humanity became extinct due to an enormous explosion, with not a single entity was left to pass on the reason behind the extinction, nor to remember those who had disappeared.

After what seemed an eternity, the protagonist has awoken in the midst of traces of a past human civilization. As they wander aimlessly, they encounter various records left behind by humans and beings who assist them.

Elements[]

Important concepts in the game are 'unleashing potential' and 'skills'. Each aircraft type has four skills, and from the second skill, they will be unlocked upon defeating boss monsters that the player encounters during the game.

Skills[]

The player can only select one of two skills for each stage, but they can change their choice at any time.

Unleashing Potential[]

The main character features internal power which can be unleashed. By completing an event that the player will inevitably encounter during the game, the main character can unleash this power, and when this power is unleashed, modifications are made to its skills and overall stats that suit an aircraft of large power.

Trivia[]

  • The game's Steam ID is exactly 1000000.
