: : : : : Soul Sacrifice

[edit] Background

The story begins with your discovery of a book in your jail cell. This mystical tome has the power to draw its reader in, making them experience what is inscribed within. It contains the journal of a sorceror, and as you read it, you yourself experience the thrill of the sorcerer's battles against monsters.

You are a sorcerer, but the magic you control is governed by arcane principles. Great strength comes at great price. This is magic that springs from the objects around you - wood and rock. There is also powerful magic, which you can only obtain through great sacrifice - part of your body, part of your life-force. Keep using strong magic, and the price you have to pay in return will be immense. You may even cease to be human.

This world was created by human desire. Monsters were originally humans who had succumbed to darkness, using magic according to their desire. Each stage is a twisted word, a product of human desire.

Sorcerers are charged with the extermination of these formerly-human monsters. They may be saved instead of killed. However, saving a monster requires the taking of someone else's life in its place. What will you sacrifice, and what will you take? Who will you save, and what will you believe? You will be forced to struggle, and to choose.

As a sorceror, you must always be truly prepared. Magic is a cruel mistress.

[edit] Gameplay

What would you sacrifice for ultimate power? Prepare yourself for a brutal combat experience where every decision made will have consequential results. Take on the role of a slave who is about to be sacrificed, stumbles upon a forbidden book that allows its readers to relive battles between sorcerers and monsters of the past. In order to use the magic during fierce battles, the player must be willing to make a sacrifice - ranging from personal belongings, a limb, or even a life.

[edit] Features

  • Reality blended experience where players must sacrifice parts of themselves to obtain great power
  • Freeform character development as a player's decision would affect the characters abilities and visual form
  • The first action co-op RPG experience that takes full advantage of PS Vita technical capabilities
