Over two hundred years ago, the five heroes defeated the god of darkness; Ragnarok, in a climactic struggle for the fate of the world. Banished back to the realm of darkness known as the Abyss, the threat of the evil god had finally been put to rest once and for all...or so they thought.

Umbral Soul follows the story of Ragnarok’s loyal servant, Pandora, who joins her master in a quest to conquer the world and reclaim his lost power. In order to shroud the world in eternal darkness, they will have to find and recruit new allies, build an army of powerful monsters, and raise a force strong enough to crush anyone who dares to oppose them. Heroes, generals and rival overlords all stand against them. Do you have the power to make the world yours?



Pandora
A powerful dark sorceress with the ability to call forth monsters from the Abyss and enslave them to her will. Her burning hatred for the world and its people leads her to follow Ragnarok with unwavering loyalty.

Ragnarok
The god of darkness, who seeks dominion over the human realm. Once an extremely powerful being in the form of a monstrous demon, he has now been reduced to a mere soul. He wishes to plunge the entirety of the human realm into darkness, in part out of spite for his counterpart; the goddess of light, Lumielle.

Lanith
Beautiful, deadly, and self absorbed to a tee, Lanith is a succubus with a never ending hunger for the lifeforce of men. Having served under Pandora since she was only a child, she has a knack for getting under her skin, and does so whenever the opportunity arises.

Damien
A deeply twisted and sadistic young man, Damien loves nothing more than manipulating others and watching them squirm. While he has kept his true nature a secret, Ragnarok’s uprising marks the perfect opportunity for him to cut loose and have some fun...by killing as many enemies as possible.

Azrielle
The lord of all demons, who is fiercely loyal to Ragnarok and possesses an extreme, seething hatred for humanity. After failing to aid his master in conquering the world the first time, he has no intention of repeating the same mistakes again.

Shock and Speechlessness 2: The Shockening

Hoo boy, where to even start? I've been putting off writing this blog for a couple of days now because I'm not exactly sure what to say. Welp, let's start from the beginning. A few days ago, Umbral Soul won 3 and 1/3 Misaos: Best Protagonist/Characters, Best Intro, Best Gameplay Balance, and a three way tie with Lakria Legends and Sideways for Raddest Setting.

To be perfectly honest, I'm speechless. In fact, I've been speechless for 3 days, which is why this blog is coming so late. Once again, my good friends shock and speechlessness have shown up at my doorstep, carrying gift baskets filled with fruit and trail mix. I don't think I've ever felt like this before in my life, and I doubt I ever will again. It just isn't something you can put into words.

Let's get this out of the way; I am extremely flattered and thankful to this community for its kindness. When I joined this site and submitted this game, winning a Misao was such a far off dream that I never even considered it possible. Heck, I thought even getting a single review would be a stretch. I actually laughed when people suggested it could be even remotely possible for this game to win a Misao. Yet here I am, talking to all of you now, overwhelmed by a powerful mixture of disbelief and joy that that has socked me in the jaw harder than Mike Tyson in the final level of Punch Out.

I'd like to give a big fat thank you, not only to those of you who voted for the game, but who gave it a chance. Never in my wildest dreams did I think it would become this popular. I'm going to do my best to live up to your expectations for future games, if for no other reason than to give back some of the joy this community has given me. And to you goofballs who voted for Umbral Soul in the "Best Fangame" category, you're all shmucks. Lovable shumucks, but shumcks. Thanks again, now it's time for me to get back to work and make you guys some even better games!

Been a while since I've been here to check on this game, how are things going man?
The only thing you can really miss before the final dungeon is...

getting Narissa as a summon. To unlock her, talk to her after starting the vampire quest but before finishing it.


Everything else you can do all the way up until the last dungeon, and the game will warn you when you're about to reach that point. BUT! I know that there are people who are concerned about missing things, so I'm making a guide for the upgraded version I'm releasing. It'll feature a new campaign, a new summon, a few new monster evolutions, upgraded maps and additional scenarios. I'm also sprucing up some of the artwork, facesets, and sprites. It's gonna be the bomb diggity.

If you're ever unsure about how to unlock something, just shoot me an email and I'll tell you exactly what to do. Thanks for playing!
Man, there are so many characters yet party cap is only 4. 3 people left behind, and im nowhere close to finishing the game. Like, I want to SEE EVERY CONVERSATION, EVERY EVENT, EVERYTHING! But it will take way too long. And i may permamently miss some event if i do it with the wrong person. :( Is there like any "guide" or maybe indication i should use which person? Or am I just being over concerned?
Smokeldoggz:I appreciate the props, but I'm not planning on taking this game commercial. It's just a fun little (maybe not the right word) project I put together because I wanted to bring the game in my head to life. With all the stuff I've *ahem* "borrowed" from other media, I'd get sued by at least 40 different people. But man, being able to play rpg maker games on consoles is one of my dreams. Yes, I know about RPG Maker for the Switch, but those games are severely limited in their resources.

Asora1234- Yeah, what Kris said. You can unlock Narissa by talking to her in Pandora's room after starting the vampire sidequest. Just make sure you do so before you finish that quest, as she's the only summon you can permanently miss out on. For the kyubirin, just keep using Pandora's aoe heal when you need to and you'll be fine. Grelda doesn't have to live through that fight for you to clear it.

i cant figure how do the puzzle in Forest the fairy. Each time i try i got lost or kill . how beat the puzzle and how beat the kyubbe it impossibe.

last question how recruit narssisa the last maid
great game sadly there not a guide

PS: marcus is the weakest membere i alway get him kill

Go to the opposite directions of what the fairy tells you and you're good!

Also Marcus is quite strong, try combining him with the Kraken summon, they make a nice combo :)

Hi. Umbral Soul was recently recommended to me so I watched a review on Youtube and after 1 sentence I knew I was sold: You play as the bad guys.

Please consider bringing Umbral Soul to Playstation. It’s be a day 1 purchase for me.

I just played trough this game a second time, after first playing it a few months ago. Am actually replaying it so i can write a review. This game is one of those once in a life-time experiences, and it has a special pace in my heart. Im gonna write a review soon, as i feel this game absolutely deserves more praise. I also discovered you're working on a Ultimate Edition, and because i am DYING to know about it can we get at least a bit of details as to what the content is gonna be?? Like more enhanceable monsters (like the insect queen, i think she deserves one) or more side quests, maybe even another character (these are not expectations btw, im just wondering :) ). Anyways, just wanted to say that, and keep up the amazing work, this game and it's characters have become a part of me, and am so happy you have made this game!



im the same side of Kris great game.

Sorry, just give me a second. Just breathe into the paper bag, Wheel. Just keep breathing into the bag. I'm starting to think the bag is no longer enough.

There's not much more I can say in response to this other than "wow". That's the good wow by the way, not the horrified/disgusted wow. Let me just say I think you'll be pleased with what's to come. I'll send you a message soon, so keep an eye on your inbox.

Oh, and fujimiya, let me give you a hearty "thank you" and an even heartier "you're welcome."

rpgmakerfan13:Man oh man, what a pleasant surprise this was. Are you trying to make me cry? Because it really seems like you're trying to make me cry. You have no idea what hearing stuff like this means to me. Sure I've done my fair share of rambling, gushing to everyone about how grateful I am, but comments like this never cease to play my heartstrings like a harp. At this rate I'm going to need heartstring replacement surgery, and I don't think my insurance covers that. I knew I should've switched to Geiko. No wait, that's car insurance.


Ebanyle: Speaking of lurkers, it's good to see you're still on board the ol' wagon Ebanyle. I remember your words were a great encouragement to me way back when, so thanks for sticking with me all this time. Good things are a' comin'!

Fujimiya:
And now, on to the tech support! *cracks knuckles*

Have no fear fujimiya, for your puzzle problems are about to be solved.

The layout of the musical orb stands is as follows.

1 2 3 4 5 6

Activate them in the following order to solve the puzzle.

4,3,4,1,4,5

I'm including a text file in the Ultimate Edition that has the solution to this puzzle, in case anyone who wants to replay the game forgets it. I'm also shaving off the last two notes so it's a little easier. Be sure to let me know if you need anything else. Now get out there and kick some vampire booty!


OMG thank you so much for this!!! You're game is sooooo unique and very fun to play! This is definitely one of the bests! i'm gonna finish this game and hope for a part 2, or next game of yours. hahaha . Godbless! :)

I cant figure out the puzzle on Rozalin's castle. the one where you need to listen to a melody.. I tried different combinations but it's not working. Help me pls?
Hahahaha :D

But i'm loving this game so much!!!
yeah, i still check like, twice a month xD
Long time lurker here,

I just wanted to say that your game is one of TWO absolute best I've ever played. It's so well written and has great plot, but it also doesn't overwhelm you with too much information at once.
And I've played tons of rpg-maker games, searching every nook and cranny of Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and this site for something new to try, but this one has got to be one of the best. Thank you for making such a great game!

I'm also looking forward for more, be it a sequel, prequel, or remake.
FWIW, seeing this pop on the main page made me think for a second "Oooh, the update's finally out! Yay!"

Glad it's being worked on still :)

Don't really have anything new to say, just noticed it's been a while since anyone said anything so I wanted to mention that I'm still excited for the update and sequel.


I'd say this counts as something new. To tell you the truth, I was getting a little worried that people might lose interest in the game because the update is taking so long, so your comment was a great encouragement. Thanks for the boost, bud.

*picks up the phone* duplicate comment here, who this?
