TRAILER


SYNOPSIS
After the rise of a secret organization named Providence, Jun, a mercenary, finds himself caught in the middle of a coup d'etat. To restore order, he and his best friend Ne'l must journey across the entire continent of Iris, helping citizens in need while liberating the Empire from a dark legacy.

FEATURES
  • Over 30 quests to experience.

  • Around 15 hours of gameplay.

  • 40 Achievements to earn.

  • Interconnected/open world.

  • Resource management-based combat system.

  • Grinding not required.

  • An all original soundtrack.


GAMEPLAY
This game has an interconnected world. Each village on the continent has characters seeking help, and their requests might send you on adventures all around the continent!

BATTLE SYSTEM
  • Enemies roam the world and will chase you when they see you. By walking, it is possible to sneak past them.

  • Combat in this game focuses on skills and the resource known as Anima.

  • All skills use Anima and have a cooldown.

  • Players can choose and equip skills. Develop your own strategy and moveset, from locking down enemies with status effects, to using skills that target enemies' Anima to prevent them from attacking!


BACKSTORY
On Iris, the term mercenary has changed to mean something different. With the start of peacetime in the Fourth Age, the Mercenaries' Guild found its new purpose by serving the government. The Guild became the acting police force, at the same time providing help to people who request it. Through the "Mercenary Request" system, people can request help from a mercenary to carry out tasks or odd jobs for a reward.


ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS
If you get an error about xinput1_3, please install DirectX.

If you get an error about F1AltEnterF12.dll, please install the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages.




If you are stuck with a puzzle, I might have a guide on it on my website. If not, you can ask here.

You need to install DirectX. Here's a link. Typically people already have it, but sometimes people don't.
I'm just before fighting Taal and I think I've gotten everything except the Dragon Armor, where can I obtain the Rare-Herb Tea?

Rare-Herb Tea is part of a trading sequence. I have a walkthrough for the Dragon Armor on my website. If you want to figure it out yourself, just make sure you have an Avatar Heart, a Strange Token, and Dragon Hide. The NPCs you need to trade with are all indoors.
Well, I think I've done everything now (though I'm still missing the achievement about activating all the statues, though I'm pretty sure I didn't miss any). Overall its a great game!

Story wise, I think it was nice how there wasn't a whole lot of exposition from the characters themselves but instead it mostly came from books you could read (though sometimes it feels a little bit chaotic since each book generally details specific events/traditions). There also was a fair bit of character backstory and interaction in the sidequests.

Gameplay wise (I played on Lunatic), I would say The World and Judgement are way too strong, with proper buffs and debuffs Judgement can one-shot almost every single boss in the game, and The World gives you a whole 5 turns to set it up (once you get past mid-game, you can defeat a lot of bosses without ever giving them a chance to attack). The Rooster stance+Death combo also kinda trivializes any non-boss single enemy encounter. On the other hand the Ram stance and The Hierophant feel pretty weak. Pan's Ring is also way too strong on Ne'l in my opinion, since he can combine it with The Chariot to reduce most of his cooldowns to 2-4 turns.

Finally, I believe the Dive Battles are way too easy since you access them when you've probably already beaten everything else in the game (plus in this game there really isn't any kind of significant penalty involved in successive battles), plus you also have the powerups. The unique rewards that you can obtain from it are also kinda useless since, again, you probably already beat every other boss in the game. A suggestion I have would be to make them available earlier in the game, and maybe changing it to simply fighting empowered versions of the bosses to obtain rewards (ie you fight Pascal, Elena and Victor at the same time and you get the Skirmisher Armor if you beat them).

Thanks for the feedback and thanks for playing!

Have you fought the superboss yet?

Yeah, I did as soon as she became available, wasn't too bad, except for the fact that other than Judgement most of my other attacks didn't really deal much damage. I just repeatedly used Judgement while stalling while it was on cooldown. For the shadows I just pinned them down with statuses (Poison, Sleep, Paralysis and Stun) until they died of Poison damage. The fight would probably have gone much faster if I had obtained Pan's Ring beforehand.
I get this error whenever I try to use the quest log



Do you think it has something to do with me using a gamepad? (X360 Controller)
I get this whenever I try to open the game

That's interesting... I don't think it has anything to do with controllers, since quite a bit of players have used it. How far are you into the game?

Please ensure that the dll is inside the System folder and nothing is tampered with. If something is missing you might need to redownload. If it still doesn't work, you might need to install this. Usually most people already have it installed (like with DirectX) from other programs/games. Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

Hmm... This is definitely some sort of rare glitch with the quest log. Could you try sending me your save file?

Hopefully if you aren't too far in, you could try starting a new file... Otherwise you can just continue without using the Quest Log.

Here's my save:

This is very strange. I'm able to open the Quest Log without any problems. Maybe try opening the Quest Log again? Sorry that this is happening. If you'd like to keep playing I could put an online version of the Quest Log on my website.

It's a quest reward from the mercenary request "Force of Nature". You will need to finish the request "Rocky Liberation" and chapter 3 to unlock it.
