Ooroborys is a world were humans and beings called essences live side by side.
No one knows the orgins of the essences (most don't even believe they exist), but researchers
know that they have something to do with the Cruxis sword (known as the crystal sword
to the humans).An evil essence is on the verge of awakening the last possessor of the
Cruxis sword, an ancient human king named Demilos, whom wishes to put the entire
world and its kingdoms under his rule. The planet (Ooroborys) considers Demilos a threat
to its existence, so it has subtly chosen 4 humans to fight against this parasite (without
their prior knowledge). You control our 4 heroes as they travel the world and its kingdoms,
fighting to keep Demilos from awakening.
Traiye: is an optimistic 16-year old boy from Ralin villiage, a small villiage in the Labimine
forest. He made contact with the planet one day with his friend Primera at an Auroa
(the games take on magical energy) deposit, giving both of them powerful latent
aura's (the games take on magic). He can also be hard-headed and a little introvert
with his feelings.
Primera: is more on the pessimistic side, but she is still light hearted with a good attitude, even
though she can be a little smart-alecky at times. She, like Traiye, made contact with the
planet through an Auroa deposit and gained the ability to use her latent aura.
Aalani: is a knight captain of the ancient Shandelean civilization. She was the person tasked with
killing Demilos in the first place, but only managed to seal him in his own weapon. Upon
hearing about the re-awakening process of Demilos in the future, she volunteered to be
put to sleep until that time to warn the people of the present of Demilos' awakening.
Kymshi: is a knight of the modern Shandelean military that assists our heroes under orders
from the king of Shandel. Researchers have been experimenting on Kymshi using
the latest techniques in Auroa developments, making him imperative to the team.
I scoured the internet, looking for any and all the free for commercial use resources that
I could find, so my list of credits is pretty long. These include graphic resources like tilesets, character
sprites, window skins, battlers, and icons and music resourses. I made sure to credit everyone whose
resources I used in a text file and the games ending credits.

- 7-10 hours of epic but old-school rpg gameplay.
- Well designed, detailed boards give a sense of atmosphere to the game's 21 different locations.
- Item and magic-based battle system offers plenty of room
for articulate strategies, especially against the game's bossess.
- Fast but strategic battles that play out in first person, ala Dragonquest, but with more flare.
- Intriguing story line with its own lore (as in, not borrowed from other rpgs) and likeable characters.
- Beautiful soundtrack
