Indie publisher Gamera Games is excited to announce the 2024 release of Abyss Fantasia, a hand-drawn fantasy adventure role-playing game developed by Dlu Studio. The game will be available on Steam and is also slated for exhibition at Tokyo Game Show 2023, where attendees can experience its first demo. Players will have the chance to step into the shoes of Yugari, an "incomplete" young girl, on her first adventurous journey.

About The Game

Inspired by works like "Made in Abyss" and "Ruina: The Ruined City," players will explore a massive hole in the central continent known as the "Abyss." The Abyss is a mysterious and dark place that impacts all who enter. Those with weaker wills may lose their sanity and transform into monsters. Despite its risks, the precious treasures of the Abyss continue to attract many adventurers who venture into its depths.

Yugari will encounter various strange characters and events within the Abyss. Players will use a wide array of items to solve puzzles, make choices that impact other characters' fates, and influence the unfolding story. 

In confronting the dangerous and bizarre creatures of the Abyss, players will engage in battles using a variety of cards and odd items. The same cards can have different effects in various situations, making flexible use of cards and rich imagination key to victory. 

To avoid losing their sanity, players must return to the border town of "Cynthia" for supplies. Here, Yugari can prepare for her next Abyss exploration while interacting with the town's culture and people. Gather provisions, forge new equipment, and select your very own unique “relics” to assist in your exploration. 

The game features carefully hand-drawn scenes. As you delve into the Abyss, you will face strange and formidable monsters. Engage them with cards and relics, discovering unexpected effects from different combinations. The same card can take on various forms under different circumstances; wield them wisely and unleash your creativity to triumph in battle.
