About This Game


Path of the Abyss is a single-player, grid-based dungeon exploration RPG.
You explore dungeons expressed in black-and-white pen drawings with your freely customized character and aim for the deepest level.

* Notice *

The English version will be released later than the Japanese version.
Release date to be determined.

* Features *

・First-person RPG
・Real-time combat that can be paused at any time
・Free character building
・Various mysteries and loot lying in the dungeon

* Combat *

Combat proceeds in real time.
You can pause at any time, so you can stop time, assess the monster's attack, strengthen your allies, block the monster's attack, and use various other means to advance the battle to your advantage.
Since the monster's behavior can be ascertained in advance, it is also important to select the skills to be used accordingly.
In other words...

(1) Pause and assess the monster's attack
(2) Select the appropriate skill
(3) Release the pause.

The above cycle (1) to (3) is to be repeated for combat.

Skills that can be used in battle must be set in advance on the "formation panel," which consists of nine panels.
The type and position of the skills set on the formation panel will greatly affect the outcome of the battle.
Since the formation panel is shared by the party, the main feature of the game is how to make the most of the limited number of panels.

* Character Build *

.A character can be built with 8 abilities, 5 basic parameters, skills, and equipment.
Equipment may also have special abilities, which can greatly change a character's abilities.

* Party Build *

The various skills possessed by the characters are set in the formation panel to build the party.
The various skills have synergistic effects and are built to assist each other's abilities.

* Exploration *

.In Path of the Abyss, you explore a world consisting of one vast dungeon and several sub-dungeons.
Solve the various mysteries of the dungeon and strengthen your character to reach the deepest depths of the dungeon.

* Story *

.A small ruin in East Weltorden, which has been stolen many times and eventually decayed without attracting anyone's attention, has been the site of many horrific monster sightings.
Those who dismissed the sightings as idle gossip and went there to test their mettle never came back.
The lord of East Weltenden sent a survey team to investigate the ruins, but the results were cruel.

Rumors of the ruins soon spread throughout the land, and many skilled adventurers began to visit the area.
You are no exception to this.
