There, Shawn gets into contact with you(!) - a guardian spirit. A bodyless entity from ancient tales... thattalks in his head! But Shawn has no time to worry as a mysterious, shrouded group arrive at the temple, questioning Shawns intrusion. Events spiral out of Shawn's control, dragging you along with Shawn and his friends into a fateful journey that will discover the true nature of your bond and the dark secrets of this world!

Gameplay
The main focus lies on the bond between you and Shawn and how well you two get along as you travel the world of Alterna. Shawn's affection towards you and other characters is influenced based on what you say to him during the course of the story!



The game incorporates a turn-based battle system, fused with action-commands for certain skills that require precise timed-inputs. Each character brings their own battle-style into play for a thrilling battle experience.



Upgrade your gear with materials that you find in the field, find hidden passages and rare treasures by using tools such as a grappling hook - or dive more into the lore of Alterna by completing sidequests!

Numina Chapter I, II and III will release on the same day!

Happy Holidays everyone! It's the festive season and I wanted to leave all of you a little present in form of an announcement for next year as well: The full version of Numina will release in 2020.

This means chapter 1 "Noesis", chapter 2 "Elpis" (formerly called "Hoffnung", German for "Hope") and chapter 3 "Gnosis" will release simultaneously as a full game. This doesn't mean that the release will be pushed back: The goal is to release the game around Q2 2020 with beta-testing starting early next year.



As you already know from the last demo, "Noesis" introduces the characters and the story's themes. "Elpis" will focus on the bonds between the characters and some of the secrets and mysteries brought up in the first chapter. Finally, "Gnosis" will be a tumultuous resolution to the storyline, incorporating many decisions made by the player along the way.

I decided against an episodic release for various reasons, one of the simplest are the technical challenges that come with managing a split-release with RPG Maker MV. It would have meant to invest time into ensuring that the chapters smoothly integrate on Steam, itch.io and so on, instead of spending that time on the game itself.

Progress-wise I've finished working on chapter 2 and I'm currently finishing up the final scenes of the last chapter. My goal is to start with testing in January, while also starting to work on the english translation. There's also loads of other things for me to take care of such as preparing the Steam-release, doing promotional work and also keep you lovelies in the loop :)

I can't say it enough, but I'm very grateful for the loyal following I've gathered. It's a huge dream of mine to create games and especially with Numina, it's been almost a decade of my life. So I hope it'll result in something special for everyone involved.

Thank you all again! See you in the next year, I'm sure it's gonna be an exciting one.

Hmm... sounds good and the screenshots look good... but the synopsis you posted is a bit confusing because you seemed to have taken an abrupt jump in para 2...
... or is it just me?

That's the right attitude! But just to clarify: I am male. It's just that sometimes, my bro up there messes up the genders. ;P
Sis, there's really no need to fake your gender just to be more like me - you know your brother accepts you as the petite little girl you are.
Bro loves you, hun, so just stay true to what you are. x3

... You know, I'd post something constructive to the game but it looks like marketing-Dust is still asleep. :<
What a visually impressive game! I'll be sure to be follow this!
Looks amazing! Where did you get all those amazing effect? What was very awesome was the way the ruins started to fall apart. It must of been pretty hard to do something like that in a Rpg Maker game.
It promises to be interesting game.
the game and the story look good hope there one ending and is the good one......

i hope (>.<)
