STORY:

MARCUS FORD, a former delinquent who has turned his life around, is thrust into a world of deceit, death, and murder when he is accused of being a key player in stopping the upcoming apocalypse. After murdering a powerful attorney, he is forced into a battle from which he cannot escape, and the only way he can obtain his freedom is by destroying the source of the evil itself. He is joined by ASHKII HASTIIN, a warrior from the mountains in search of his missing father, CHELSIA ASHFORD, the beautiful trophy wife of Alexander Ashford who desires to put an end to the chaos that her husband had created--despite having questionable objectives of her own, and LINDSEY LONDON, a humanoid demon liaison between Earth and the Underworld. Should they fail, mankind could face extinction. Will Marcus side with forces of light and cast the dark forces back into the underworld, or will he side with the forces of darkness and expose the light forces for the scandals they really are? Or will he overthrow both sides and forge a world of his own? Your fate is solely in your hands.

FEATURES:
- Three branching pathways, each with their own set of characters, individual plotlines, and point of views. Your actions and interactions with certain characters will determine your alignment.
- Fast-paced battle system.
- A mature, dark storyline.
- A complete walkthrough of the demo

SETTLING:
- A modern society in which Demons have become legal citizens. Furthermore, stores are run by machines and not people. The major districts include:
Bridgeford - An industrial city that is known to be very demon-friendly. Marcus has spent his entire life there, leading a life of crime before finding himself behind bars. Most of its citizens are corporate professionals. Despite its size, it is not terribly expense to live there.

Lunsen - A small town sandwiched in between Bridgeford and Arcellus. Features a higher demon population than most. Crime is high, and housing is very poor. Humans tend to stay away from there.

Arcellus - A save haven for the humans. Is controlled by a Prophet who claims to have lived since the birth of man. It has limited sources, but is growing rapidly.

Jensa - A seemingly quiet and peaceful town. Its bread and butter lies with its ships, a porting town. However, there is a much darker side to Jensa oblivious to the rest of the world...a deadlier side.

Gold - The demon capitol of the world. Most of the people in power are demons. They are, however, very human friendly, and has less crime than Bridgeford and Lunsen.

CHANGES FROM THE OLD DEMO:

- The new demo is twice as long (the original demo wasn't that long, don't worry)
- You get to actually choose your pathways
- Balance issues fixed
- Plot-holes/dialogue addressed
- I changed the way some of the pictures were presented to give them a slightly more...'unified' look, if you will.
- There is a 'chart' Book that you can access from your menu screen that will explain the strengths and weaknesses of each element (since the game doesn't use traditional elements like "fire, water...etc".
- A new title screen

And of course, the mainstays:
- Colored arrows to direct you to your next destination (in addition to hints)
- When backtracking you can skip battles - meaning you don't have to flee from the same enemies over and over

TRAILER: (Warning! This was made in 2008, so it is VERY old!)
