With just over 2000 backers so far pledging a generous amount of $80,461, smashing the goal of $44,000, Midgar Studio's kickstarted Edge Of Eternity
is shaping up very nicely. The title is an "indie tribute to J-RPG classics" and will see players following the story of Daryon, a student with a taste for adventure who resides in the world of Heryon.
The story follows Daryon's adventure as the once beautiful world of Heryon is invaded. The invaders intend to take possession of the "three realms of Astrya, Junor and Dehostra". Doing so would give the bad guys access to magical powers that could be used for wrong-doing. Upon only acquiring one realm, battles between the invaders and the Consortium raged on through Heryon until the enemy was pushed back to their landed spaceship.
Unfortunately for the Consortium (also known as "the self-proclaimed protector of all lands of Heryon"), the spaceship becomes an impenetrable fortress. With the invaders safely tucked inside their ship, they come with a very effective idea of unleashing a biological weapon! Dubbed as the "Metal Sickness", the effects turned any kind of life into "half organic, half mechanic creatures". Filled with blinding pain, those affected by the plague fell into aggressive madness.
Our story begins as Daryon, adventurous student of the Royal Academy of Astrya meets Selen, young woman from the nomad clans formed by the survivors of Junor. Both convicted for illegal use of technology, they are hunted by the Consortium. As they run away to save their life, they will meet new allies and get involved in a journey that will change the fate of Heryon.
Filled with interesting main characters and impressive visuals, the title will offer both classic turn-based battles as well as active time battles. The story aims to not be linear and will allow players to make their own decisions and follow their own path. Your choices and interactions will open up many different opportunities in the huge and open world of Heryon. Fast traveling won't be an option in the upcoming game. Either ride your mount or start walking as you make your way through vast lands, encounter enemies, make friends, and find hidden goodies.
