What boundaries would you cross to save your home?

Avril used to be a regular 16-year-old girl, not what you’d call a natural-born hero.
Until a mysterious event devastated the Earth, and she lost everything she cared for.
Now she’s the only one who, with the physical and mental powers that she has been gifted, can attempt to save her planet!
This is how her cosmic journey starts: soon enough, Avril will learn that the line between good and evil is thin. It’s up to her to decide whom to believe: her choices will change the destiny of the universe.

KEY FEATURES

DEFENDER OR CONQUEROR? → Choose if you need to use your wits or strength in your interactions with the factions: decide who you want to become while you reach your goal, but be careful of the consequences…

FAST-PACED MULTI-LAYERED COMBAT SYSTEM → Quickly learn when to switch between physical and mental mode: sharpening your strategic dualism is the only way to keep pace with your opponents!

RETRO SCI-FI VISUALS → Fill your eyes with the original hand-painted visuals inspired by the Retro Sci-Fi Art of the 1950s – you will visit colorful and fascinating planets, and meet the most intriguing creatures of the entire universe!
