♦ A turn-based RPG using the R.I.B.S. battle system, and enhanced with other scripts such as HUDs, a burst gage, MP regeneration, and state descriptions

♦ A story-driven narrative with a non-traditional RPG plot – there’s no wars, ancient legends, magical artifacts, or saving the world involved here

♦ No random encounters – enemies appear on the map; they’ll chase you if you get too close, but if you have a high enough level, they’ll flee instead

♦ Collect scattered journal entries to uncover more about the plot and its characters

♦ Complete hidden objectives to unlock powerful skills for each character

♦ Some chests are rigged – if you choose the wrong compartment, you could end up losing HP instead of gaining an item

♦ Several optional activities including sidequests, a training tower late in game, fishing, and cooking

♦ Enhanced visually and gameplay-wise with a total of over 70 scripts for light and fog effects, character faces that shift depending on remaining HP, battle aftermath, expanded shop and equip scenes, a message system, random battle transitions, battle backgrounds, a caterpillar system, a stamina system, a quest book, and more!
