Embark on a journey to the endless desert to seek for the Great Power that can save humanity!

A hundred of years ago, a small kingdom was found. A girl named Quinn Bravesford leads soldiers in a battle to fight against rival nations for the sake of that small kingdom. Although Quinn is still young, she is an excellent commander with fearless strategies.

One day, the kingdom announced the deployment of an investigation group to the Desert of Beginnings. And Quinn was the appointed commander of that group.

As the day of their deployment begins, Quinn will leave with her comrades. Quinn stares at the ancient alchemist device that she has on hand called the Luna Gear. And she remembered that alchemist device is the key to get the Great Power that can save humanity. Legend says, it can be fitted with four types of Orbs, but, Quinn’s Luna Gear still has one orb inserted.

Despite the peril of the deadly creatures and Mechanical Dolls roaming the desert, it is said that the enemy nation, Principality of Neuhafen, also dispatched their army in search of the Great Power.

Now, are you ready for your mission? Survive with all your might and bring back your comrades from this mechanical desert at all cost and get the Great Power to save humanity!


Now, let’s take a closer look at the characters of this game followed by the released trailers. Enjoy!
