Path of the Martyrs was loosely based on a dream I had a few years ago. This boy lost a baby sibling and had to some ancient ruins to revive them. They lost many of their allies on the way to the bottom of the ruins where the treasure lies. However, each person willing sacrificed themselves so the boy would be reunited with they baby sibling.

This dream made me come up with the framework for the game where the "treasure" is at the bottom of a laboratory. The theme of sacrifice from the dream carries over into the game's story as the main character journeys to mysterious laboratory on his own to resurrect his friend. The gameplay focuses on battles fought in the lab and going back to the past to see what led the protagonist to go on such a dangerous quest to such a mysterious place.

Story
After the passing of the princess of the peaceful land of Delma, her retainer Saiyato Ichia goes to Lidoffad Lab. This lab houses many deadly foes and secrets within its walls. Will Saiyato be able combat all foes and revelations that come his way?

Features
Exploring the Lab
Each time you enter Lidoffad Lab the order you experience each floor will be different. Along with experiencing all the labs floors in a different order each time you play the game, some of the treasure will be randomized as well. So each visit to the lab will be completely different than the last.

Trading
You can trade any unwanted items you have and trade them in for something else you may need.

Skills
You can also pick how some of Saiyato's skills will grow. You can pick which path it follows, you can either make a skill more "Offensive" or more "Defensive". This allows you to cater to Saiyato's skills to your playstyle.

Visit the Past
Periodically, you will visit Saiyato's past to experience his life and the events that led him to go to Lidoffad Lab.

This game has loose story connections to Blessed Relic Chronis and The Heart's Fallacy.

Path of the Martyrs 2.0 Update

In the 2.0 update, I reworked the boss battles so they are more integrated with the story that surrounds the battle.

I also established a loose story-based connection with my two freeware games "The Heart's Fallacy" and "Blessed Relic Chronis", although each game can be enjoyed separately. There is also a side story that is roughly 2 hours long, and I fixed some more bugs within the game.

This update also comes with a side story that takes place 1 year before the events of Path of the Martyrs. Machia is going to Trito Town to do her first political interview. However, one day, monsters appear out of nowhere and threaten the livelihood of the people of Trito Town. Can Machia and Saiyato uncover why this town is being targeted?
