Earth Romancer offers a vibrant Nintendo-esque aesthetic and an original soundtrack inspired by old-school platformers and classic fantasy RPGs. New features include:
- Dash or jump through projectiles for intense bullet-hell style fighting.
- Spawn stage objects while fighting and manipulate the environment to your advantage
- Unique character-specific air actions.
- Two modes of play! Choose Redshift or Blueshift modes or play a combination of both and switch mid-combat.
The game is set in a fictional universe called Xamsara, which is inhabited by Arcanum, mystical creatures of otherworldly power that are attracted to the emotions and dreams of people. Throughout Earth Romancer you will also get to know the various races that populate Xamsara and their symbiotic relationship with the Arcanum. Its an intricate, world-building experience filled with intrigue, drama, and beauty.
