The game is described as an “ensemble RPG” and a “simple RPG with multiple protagonists in a cruel world,” with the tagline “Even if the world is ripped by dark chaos, the alliance between people is alive.”
The story’s nine protagonists include:

- Ignace, Viviana’s butler
- Galil, a boy from the resistance
- Ursula, Galil’s childhood friend
- Rachel, a guild mercenary
- Barbarosa, a spirit warrior
- Gene, a well-versed practitioner
- Renzo, an information broker
The story is set in a land ruled by demons, divided by the effects of a “distortion.” The story will feature many cruel “worlds,” including the “World of Rain” and the “World of Fire.” The World of Rain is a world that has long ago lost its blue sky due to an unceasing rain, and contains scattered settlements and ancient ruins. The World of Fire is a scorched land built atop a once active volcano, and is surrounded by a hard wall. The story will connect the tales of nine protagonists, and the game will switch between them as the story progresses to offer differing points of view and perspectives on the conflict.
