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.

Progress Report and Feature Update

Yo people! It has recently come to my attention that I haven't posted any information about the ultimate edition in the last 30 years. I've shared some details will individual players in the past, but not the community at large. Today I'm correcting that egregious injustice by telling you all about what I've been up to, just to prove I've actually been working on the game. That being said, allow me to share with you the features of Umbral Soul's upcoming ultimate edition.

New Scenarios

There are currently ten new scenarios I'm adding to the game; some revealing more glimpses into the past, and others fleshing out some of the less prominent characters. From the moment Pandora lost her innocence and became a killer to the time where Azrielle first met Ragnarok, the history of the game will be covered in greater detail. Unlocking these new stories will be pretty straightforward, so there's no need to worry about missing out.



New Evolutions

Two summons that were incapable of evolution before will now be enhancible, boasting higher stats and new moves. There is also one additional brand new summon that is capable of evolving once. Will you be able to bring out the full destructive potential of the beasts under your command?

Increased Item Drops


Enemies now drop more items, which can be sold at local shops. That means more money to spend on experience boosting items for your summons, allowing you to turn them into hero-crushing abominations faster than ever before.

Improved Mapping


I'm the last person who would consider myself an expert mapper, but my skills have improved a bit over time. I've improved several of the maps I was unhappy with before, which will hopefully make the overall game more enjoyable.



Improved facesets

The facesets of several characters have been upgraded to be more expressive, and many characters that didn't have facesets before are now sporting them.



New Characters

The ultimate edition introduces two new villains to the story, and while they don't actually join you on your journey to conquer the world, they do play a fairly significant role in the story. Who are these new threats to the world? You'll find out soon enough.



Madam Xelna's Fortunetelling Emporium

A fun little addition to the game I've added. Previously there was a building in Arcfall that was closed, but now Madam Xelna's Fortunetelling Emporium is open for business. You can now consult this mystical old woman to look into the futures of your party members, summons, and even Ragnarok himself. What does fate have in store for you and your cohorts?



Improved Movesets

Characters learn more useful moves earlier, and some of them gain new moves altogether. Additionally, moves have been tweaked to be easier and generally more fun to use. For example, Lanith's Soul Stealing Kiss no longer has a TP cost, but rather restores some TP. TP in general has been made into a more valuable resource, and Pandora's Infernal Awakening now restores the TP of whoever it targets, allowing your allies to unleash their strongest moves more quickly. Glitches with some of the moves have also been fixed, so transforming no longer renders a character immortal. Sorry guys, you'll have to break the game some other way, heh heh.

Player's Guide

While I designed the unlockables in this game to be rather intuitive, you might be wondering if you actually managed to snag them all. Well wonder no more my friend, because the ultimate edition will include a player's guide detailing how to unlock every last summon and scenario, as well as the solutions to all the puzzles. Included will be a complete list of all the moves playable characters learn at what levels, so you'll never have to grind in vain wondering if you've learned everything.

There are other surprises to come as well, but this blog is long enough so I'll keep them under wraps for now. I'm aiming to have the ultimate edition done by the end of the year, but only time will tell if I actually manage to meet that goal. If there's anything I've learned, it's that you can't predict what life is going to throw at you next. Thanks for sticking with me everybody!

Somehow I stuck in a river after trying to enter abandoned tower, just after that bee forest. 'yada yada whatever go fetch me a world' - and I'm somehow stuck in a river quite a bit north to the place I entered
Do you have a save from before you got stuck? I think the transport event on the furthest edge of that map was faulty, but as long as you don't exit from there you should be fine.
Sadly nope. Well. whatever, faster just to replay forest quickly than bother trying to fix this
Okay, I got to Azrielle castle, beaten him and found another weird moment. When I go around the castle with whole party gathering stuff I am able to hire Gryger the invisible berserker at monster kennel, which I assume by dialogue I should know.. but I see him first time. Other than few usual collision shenanigans seems no big bugs, though I didn't seek as hard this time. I'm liking character dynamics however, and Kraken is pretty nice to have. Feels like Overlord, but less campy, less pandering, and bit more self aware. Still quite a bit of groaners, but several of them are warranted and some jokes and moments are really neat.
Dang, it sounds like you're running smack dab into all the bugs. Those'll be long gone once I release the final version of the game, but for now I'm stuck with them. Just make sure you don't add him to your party before you meet him in the story, or it's going to cause problems later. I'm glad that you're managing to enjoy yourself in spite of the bugs though.
Finished Reinhardt scenario, did recruit Marcus and looked around quite a bit. Those were pretty good stories, Damien is even more invaluable than I thought he would be. This little army of darkness is endearing and scary. This story seem to focused on choices and consequences, more on latter though. I now have a bit of reminiscences on similar themed game I doubt most people here played - The Last Sovereign , which had similar topics, while being focused more on choices. Liking it so far 7/10 for now I think? Not sure
Wow what an incredible game, 9/10 from me. A bit worried for the sequel after seeing the post credit scene tho...hopefully we still get to stick with the dark side not switching to the "heroes of light" side like hundred other games.
Hey, glad you enjoyed it! Heh heh heh, all I can say is that I think you'll find the direction the sequel takes quite interesting. I wouldn't expect anyone to enjoy something I didn't find exciting after all. Thanks for playing!
Mmm... Is that normaly that i have in party 4 members and can't summon minions?
It most certainly is not. Any idea how that happened? Do you have a previous save before that point?

NOpe. But it Happened when Azrielle leave paty on Dark Altar. Just after that I teleported to Castle and invite Marcus. After that I summon Lanith... and instead of her was summoned Azrielle... =( And now i dont know what to do, cos I need to use minions (like Demora for her Nebulos field, or Lanith for charm...)
Ah, there's the problem. I'm guessing you're on the Reinhart quest, right? You aren't supposed to be able to teleport to the castle after you watch the scene at the top of the altar, but there's a Gloom Crystal in the crystal dimension that removes the state that seals Abyssal Portal, making it possible. Your summons are still there, they're just further down one the list. Having that extra party member is going to cause trouble in the future though. I'll shoot you an email so I can fix your save file.
Just dropping by to wish you well!~
Holding myself off from replaying this again til the update/sequel release.
It's really tough and I might cave. xD
Heh. I held off a replay for over a year.
And then when I gave in, my hard drive (with the game on it) permanently died, about 5 hours in.
... maybe it's about time to stop re-holding off, though?
Hi I want to ask how to create cheat script on Android?I use Joiplay to play btw

Are you creator in this game?Can U help me to go tower of champion?in monster arena I can't buy the ticket because of this Sirius guy and I already beat advance rank in monster arena,make myself lose against him in amatur arena I need guide pls
Nanikorewa- Yup, that would be me! Sorry I didn't address your first question, but I wasn't really sure what you were asking. You'd probably have better luck getting an answer on the forums.

As for your second question, the tower of champions won't open until you've made it to a certain point in the story. Trust me, you'll now it when you see it, so if you keep playing you'll eventually be able to enter.

Knightowl and Varn - I'm psyched to hear that you're enthusiastic enough about the game to play it multiple times. Hey, if you wanna play it again, don't let me stop you. The point of most games is to have fun after all, so if you're having fun, then play away. I think the ultimate edition will have enough tweaks to make one more playthrough worthwhile, what with all the new bells and whistles.

Hows luminous soul coming up WheelmanZero :D?

There's a dragon in cell and the imp block in the way,in monster cell azrielle castle an locked door, Azrielle private room that can't access even I have him on party and 2 door in rozalin castle that locked,can't enter sullivan manor and more,how to unlock those?
jayfeather- Why, I'm glad you asked my good man! I don't think "excited" is a strong enough word to describe how hyped I am to show you everything I've had in the oven regarding Luminous Soul. I'm implementing a lot of great ideas I wanted to try out, and writing the story has been a blast. In fact, I've actually made some changes to Umbral Soul in preparation for the events of Luminous Soul. If there's one thing I can say about the sequel, it's that it will be far from boring. Let's just say I hope you like boss battles.

Nanikorewa- Don't worry, those areas actually can't be unlocked in this game. This is because they won't play a role in the story until the sequel. I wanted to avoid having the player revisit all of the same areas across two different games, so certain areas were locked off.
