We spirits are curious things, Zero. We all have a purpose to fulfill, and each of us represents something. And I hope you can figure out what you represent, too. Guess you can figure that out while you're off putting the whole thing back together.



Set 100 years after the true ending of Soma Spirits, Soma Union aims to be a short, 3-5 hour RPG of some undetermined length that returns to the world of Soma! ...or so it would, if Soma had not been destroyed in a great calamity. As you roam through the cosmos to find the missing fragments of your homeworld, you'll meet a colorful cast of characters and make important choices that may not be as clear as they seem.

Look forward to the following features!

  • Embark on a galaxy-spanning quest to put Soma back together again, because this planet can't seem to catch a break, apparently.
  • Role system that pits characters with the damage-dealing Power role and the enhancing Support role.
  • Change your characters' Roles at any time, even in battle!
  • Unleash powerful Spirit abilities regardless of your current role to turn the tide of battle!
  • Collect valuable Power Gems to skip random encounters with the push of a button... or tough it out and exchange them for rare prizes!
  • Fully custom visuals. And a stellar soundtrack by SpecialAgentApe
  • Funny* jokes. The heehees and the hawhaws.






Zero is a spirit living aboard the starship Virtue. They are a shy and reluctant spirit who doesn't cause too much trouble around the ship and is usually seen doing odd jobs. Unlike the other spirits on the Virtue who all represent an emotion or an aspect, Zero is not quite sure what they are the spirit of. Given the right task, say putting Soma back together for instance, Zero might be inclined to discover that for themselves.

Reca is a spry and energetic acorn residing in the Garden Dome aboard the starship Virtue. Hoping to become the new protector of Soma's forests once it is restored, she is always seen working hard and taking charge around the ship. It might take a few good friends to keep her ambitions in check, though.

Lumen is the chief doctor and a valuable source of information aboard the Virtue, when he's in the mood to fit the job. Not quite satisfied with his life's path, Lumen might not always seem like the most pleasant person to talk to. It takes a fair amount of trust for him to open up, and perhaps there is more to him that he is willing to let on.



Soma Union has been in development since July 2019 and is now in the middle stages of content development. Please look forward to more updates as they become available and check this page's blog for progress reports and other content!

Dev Log #6: May Report

Hey all! Just a short update for the month of May.

With all the extra time I have had to work on the game, the last couple of months have proven to be quite productive! Lets take a look at the chart first and foremost.



With the exception of a couple of short scenes, Area 4 (Lamp Land) is now effectively done. This proved to be one of the most asset-intensive areas I had planned for the game, with three separate tilesets as well as two fun* minigames to help break up the flow of combat. Once the finishing touches on Area 4 are completed, I'll be preparing to move onto Area 5 to round out the rest of Chapter 2.

Though the chart above may indicate that we're just under halfway in development, this also doesn't account for all of the time spent building the game's systems, UI, and other groundwork that constituted the first 3-4 months of development. I can confidently say that Soma Union's development is now past the halfway point! So thank you to everyone who has followed the project up to this big milestone.

And a huge shoutout to SpecialAgentApe, whose tracks are once again truly bringing this game to life. You can check out some of the tracks he's provided on the game's Media Page.

It's hard to believe that Soma Union has already been in development for 10 months: roughly the development time for the original version of Soma Spirits. Compared to the first game, Soma Union is shaping up to be quite the undertaking. And I hope to see it through to the end!

Keep on the lookout for more updates, and be sure to follow the Torch60 Twitter for the occasional update as well!

I was thinking if I can can get the key skeleton parts of an RPG working in GMS I would happily share those files around for people wanting to make the jump over so they can build off it.
Subbed, and checked all the screenshot.

Soma Union is looking great! : )
Gosh darn if you dont make the most charming stuff, sgt!!

I'm reporting this to Kentona. There's no need for spirits to unionize at our site.

I haven't noticed this before. Def on board for hawhaws.
