About This Game

Return color and life to a colorless world in Arto, an immersive and visually stunning action RPG with in-depth combat mechanics,

Without color, the power of the six gods is withering and the world along with them. You are an Apostle to a dying god blessed with the gift of returning color to the world with every step you take. Venture into a hostile world and untangle the mystery of the cataclysm that stripped it of its color.

Utilize the Paint Arrow, a boon gifted to you by your god at the beginning of your journey. Along your journey, unlock special traits for this boon and experiment with a multitude of colorful projectile spells. Set your spells to home in on targets, splatter and knockback waves of enemies, or surround yourself with protective paint orbs. With more than 80 combinations, this deep system allows you to experiment and customize your playstyle.

Unlock a wide array of abilities such as a double and triple dash, a parry, a satisfying counterattack, and an arsenal of unique upgradeable weapons. Utilize different weapons to dictate the pace of your combat experience. Fight at close-quarters or a distance and attack slow and tactically or with blinding speed. Or swap weapons mid-combo using a radial menu and experiment with combat even further - the choice is yours.

Immerse yourself in a branching narrative where your choices will ultimately steer this dying world to salvation or into further destruction. You may be the only one who can undo the effects of the cataclysm, but you don't have to do it alone. How you handle the other apostles in their territories will affect the end of your story.

  • Overcome a variety of artfully-conceived enemies.
  • Put your combat prowess to the ultimate test and challenge optional bosses.
  • Craft your personality through a branching dialogue system.
  • Explore a world filled with environmental clues about the truth of the cataclysm.
  • Meet and instill hope in the quirky inhabitants of this world by helping them with tasks.

Keep your wits about you and ask questions, for not everyone you encounter along your journey wants you to bring color back to the world…
