An action role-playing game set in a lush imaginative world, in which players must create and fight for civilization’s last refuge as a mysterious narrator marks their every move.

An enjoyable hack and slash RPG with some very good narrative and an interesting world. the only real criticism I have is with the final level, where your (most likely) newly levelled up and awesome weaponony is taken away (as well as your ability to run and dodge) and you are instead given an extremely powerful short range battering ram; And the only reason that you are not killed easily from a distance is that eventually even the ranged characters run up to you for some reason.
