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!

Pff, it's not like i'm a big channel or anything. I only have a little under 200 subs, and i'm, oh, 90% sure that half of them are interested mainly in Undertale and Incrmentals. (grumblegrumble stupid three video thing exploding)
Ha! Big, shmig, I just want to see someone play it. If anything having more people watch it just makes me more nervous. Must...spellcheck...entire script for the 3rd time.

Ok...no pressure. No pressure. Must live up to the public's expectations. Dagnabit, I need a paper bag to breathe into!

All kidding aside, I hope you enjoy my game as much as I enjoyed yours. I'm taking some extra time to add in a little more razzle dazzle and improve some of the mapping, but I'm almost done. I should be done by the end of the year at the latest as long as things go according to plan. Thanks for the comment, bud!


Nooo no pressure don't worry about that. xD

Haha I definitely will by the looks of things. :3 And awesome, that sounds great. x3 A little more razzle dazzle is always welcome in games. XD
But yeah, personally for me I'm so easily distracted I'm surprised I completed the game I made. Right now I'm half working on another one, but keep playing other games instead xD

Sooooo...funny story. I've been playtesting the game into the ground lately and as it is, it seems very solid. The thing is, every time I play a section I believe has room for improvement or more content, I think back to Starmage's generous review and tell myself "this can be better." I want this game to be worthy of that review, so I'm going to take some more time to spruce it up even more and maybe sneak in a few sidequests.
This game is amazing. :) Thank you for it :)

Thank you for playing! I'm hoping to exceed your expectations. Just hold on a little longer, I'm animating the final boss' attacks as we speak. There are a few more things I want to add, but the end is in sight.

Ya no rush. I know your working hard on a great game. I really respect that. Thank you for the effort and I know the wait will be worth it.
i started playing the demo of this game, i wanna say some time during last September, and it was absolutely amazing, and looking at the post above me, i'm glad to see that your almost done, i imagine the game will be great, not trying to rush you but i'm exited to play the full game!
This is a promissing game, i had always liked games where you can be evil, the story is amazing in this demo.I can't wait to play the full version.
Good news, guys. I'm currently doing a playtest of the final version, fixing little things as I go along. It won't be much longer now!
Nice, great news. Been wanting to check this game out.

yeeeeeeahhhh!!! I cannot wait! :D
I played through your demo and I liked it alot. The character development felt spot on and the different ability mechanics didn't go unnoticed. Like MDef and Shadow Shell.

Thank you for the effort you put into this. I can't wait for the full version.

it's a nice game plot but i have a huge problem it seems i can't start the game, since it keeps popping up screen requiring some files like magic1 or world1 (i thing that's the name of file)

could you fix it, really want to try this game out

Ah I think I might know what the problem is. This game requires rpg maker vx ace's rtp to run. There's a link on the download page that'll take you right to it, once you install it, you should be good. I think maybe I'll upload a another version with the rtp installed so it doesn't happen again. Have fun bud.
Hey, great job on this game! Really enjoying it so far. Just one question, the items that say "might as well sell" or "you can probably sell" and things like that...is it actually safe to sell them, or will I need to hold on to some for quests and the like?

Nah, don't worry about that, there's no crafting in this game. Most enemies in the game drop items to be sold instead of gold. I personally love the feeling of collecting items from enemies and then unloading them at a shop for a huge chunk of cash, which is why I chose item drops over cash drops. There is one sellable item in the game that's related to a quest, but it stands out a bit from the others, and even if you sell it, you can get more of it later. Glad you're having a good time!
