Players can plan out their team’s class schedule in order to learn new skills and gain new allies through different side quests. The grid-based tactics gameplay is a similar to games like Into the Breach, as well as Persona 1 and 2.

“We wanted to create a game with complete transparency while still allowing for mystery. You’ll never have to guess at numbers or what does what,” says Necrosoft Games creative director Brandon Sheffield. “We hope the story carries you through to a positive vision for the future, and what is possible when like-minded individuals work together against a larger evil.”

Ysbryd Games have published other titles such as World of Horror and VA-11 HALL-A.
