Important updates 8.11

Dear Players:

This whole week we have not updated, first said sorry, we are not lazy. Because the development of the new mode more strenuous, and will have a certain impact on the content of the old, but the good news is that we have the special mode of development, hope you will enjoy it.

Special mode description:

1, In this special mode, you can choose one of three roles: control Ryuzaki, Ruri or Kyuya.
2, In order to prevent conflicts, we have done a new level for the special mode, there is only one BOSS which is Ruri.
3, All the characters you can control have the skills before, and we add some actions for them,for example evade and jump.
4, Because the Ryuzaki is weaker when meeting many enemies, so we added a new attack action for larger area to Ryuzaki.
5, In order to control performance issues, most of the actions will cost energy, but in this mode, the energy will automatically recover quickly.
6, Special mode only for entertainment, I hope you can enjoy it, have fun.

If you have some issues,please tell us. We hope you can enjoy this game.We will keep improving this game.Thanks very much.Thank every player.

Important Update 8.3

Dear Players:
Thanks for enjoying our game.We also want to satisfy everyone as much as we can, so we are developing something new, I hope everyone will like it. We have released a new version update, updated as follows:

BOSS challenge
As part of the player's needs, we have added challenge mode,a total of three modules, and now open the BOSS challenge, the rules are as follows:

1, You must pass through normal or difficult mode before you can enter the challenge of BOSS in the challenge mode.
2, The challenge of BOSS in a total of 4 story mode BOSS, but were slightly enhanced (Ryuzaki of the first day is back).
3, We will record the maximum performance (challenge time and remaining HP volume) of each BOSS.

New features and adjustments

1, Some players monitor refresh rate is very high, there have been pictures of tearing and jitter, etc., we have fixed a BUG of V-Sync. The current high refresh rate (for example higher than 60HZ) monitor you can prevent the picture from tearing by adjusting the V-Sync option.
2, We've added new support for the 2K screen and the 4K screen, but the player's monitor should supports 2K and 4K.
3, Added the cross key selection menu, now you use the joystick or cross key, you can choose the menu.
4, Weaken the final BOSS, giving the player more fault tolerant space.
5. Fixed some small BUG.

New feature trailer

Special mode:
We made a special level, you can control Ryuzaki or Kyuya in this level, Ryuzaki and Kyuya have the same skills as they are in story mode.

Memory mode:
We show players in the official group some of the items that have been abandoned at the beginning of the design and developing. Many players are interested in them. So we decided to create a memory mode in which players would into a relatively complete Acade that we originally made and then abandoned. You will control the earlist version of Ruri, and explore in the scene. We will leave much text in many places, which recorded here once designed what story, or here happened what problems and interesting problems when developing.

Thanks. If you like our game, help us to promote it please.THANKS!

About This Game

Restory Studio is a small team of five developers. We hope you will love this game as much as we do.

THE INITIAL is a hyper action game about pretty schoolgirls battling against evil.

The game takes place in a special area called SPE, with a school for students gifted with ESP powers. Every student of the school is skilled in battle, and an evil organization wants to create an artificial girl who has the ultimate power. They have secretly collected combat data and are close to achieving their goal. Now it's up to two students, Ruri and Erika, to stop them.

This game focuses on high-speed arena-based action. Utilize lightning fast sword attacks and electricity-based powers to smash through enemies. Block, evade, and look for chances to strike against smart enemies who will do the same!

There are many ways to overcome enemies: use skill points to learn new skills and abilities, capitalize on the weaknesses of enemies to beat them quickly, and if the enemy is knocked into weak state you can execute it directly!

This game has many levels and battle zones with plenty of challenges along the way. Enemies with different abilities, multiple traps, and unique bosses. With four difficulty levels to choose from, there's a challenge just right for everyone from beginners to action game veterans.

We hope you will like it. Grab your sword and good luck!
