Windows PC, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch
Fantasy Violence, Mild Language, Mild Suggestive Themes, Use of Alcohol
This is a role-playing game in which players help an alchemist (Lulua) uncover the story of a mysterious book. Players advance the story by completing various missions that include gathering materials, crafting items, and battling monsters. Battles are turn-based, with characters using swords, hand cannons, giant anchors, and magic spells to defeat enemy creatures (e.g., slimes, wild animals, humanoid monsters). Combat is accompanied by impact sounds, cries of pain, and screen-shaking effects. Some dialogue contains suggestive material (e.g., “But I'll warn you, try ogling her and you'll be in big trouble!”); in one sequence, a drunken woman holds down another character and tries to kiss her (e.g., “You're so cute. I've always thought so…Let me give you a little kiss.”). The game contains a handful of sequences depicting drunk characters (e.g., “You, too! Drink up…What? So my stuff isn't good enough for you? *hic*”; “Drunk? Me?”; “You really can't hold your liquor, can you?”). The word “bastard” appears in the dialogue.
