What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“This game is one of the biggest projects I have ever been a part of. It is both a work of passion and sweat. I have decided that this project needs to be shown to the world, and for others see the progression into its epic form. It gives people access early to this unique game, unlike any RPG Maker game you've played yet on Steam.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“It is currently projected, though not guaranteed for quality control, that it will be in Early Access until early 2018.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will contain all graphic sequences, a finished story, and tweaked mechanics to fit a better play style along with some Easter eggs.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“It is in an alpha state, but completely functional and story driven up to a denouncement of the first large chapter. There is about an hour or so of content including several battle sequences. You will get hands on with the battle system, and be introduced to the first portion of the story. Once it opens up to the map, it will be in an unfinished state, with only a handful of towns available to access and to move the story forward.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Once it is finished, it will be in a polished state. The price will increase when we leave Early Access. However, this gives people the opportunity to play a state close to the finished product as it progresses at a very discounted rate.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“The community open to make suggestions according to their play style and needs.”

About This Game

Once upon a time, there was a cursed land..... Centralia. Deep in the heart of this land, King Leo of Gala sought the Cores of the Old World for power and greed. He was betrayed by his nephew, Frederick, who sparked a civil war between Gala armies; one male, one female. Frederick was defeated by AMBUSH ending the bloody and short war.

Now, General Elle Clare plans to bring the royal family in to take power to unite Gala. This ends up setting off a chain of events that lead the members of AMBUSH into turmoil. It's up to the remaining members, Red Cloud (a shadowy outlaw), Snow Sweetmint (a newly warmhearted fighter), Mint Bittersweet (a sharpshooting bounty hunter), and Dr. McKimson (an inventive scientist) to find their way in a chaotic and merciless adventure of survival, racism, drug-use, and love.

Players should expect a deep story featuring many unique characters and different choices. You'll get to meet characters that seem to feel, care, and hurt. It's an epic RPG with classic tactics game-play. The battle system is a strategic grid-based/turn-based skirmish sequence that requires careful thought and risk.

The game consists of a classic top down view and retro-pixel graphics. There are people to meet and interact with to continue the story. Every battle is unique and no battle goes exactly the same as the last one.
