◆ Your Choices Determine the Monsters’ Evolutions

A survival simulation RPG where boys and girls who get lost in another world must fight alongside monsters to survive extreme conditions and return to their own world.

The choices you make on this dangerous adventure determine the evolutions of the monsters you train and change the story.

Despite being 2D, graphics have enhanced spatial presentation, depicting a fantasy-like world, and producing a dramatic story and battles.
