Heryon, governed by magical crystals giving a harmonious balance to its three realms of Astrya, Junor and Dehostra, is in trouble. It’s been invaded by an alien civilization that’s spreading death and chaos by releasing a virus that turns people and animals into metal monsters. This process is so painful that those who are infected go mad.

The game’s hero, Daryon, is hunted by these monsters. He leaves Heryon and meets Selen, a survivor from Junor. Together, they’ll meet new allies and go on a journey that will change the fate of Heryon.

From indie developer Midgar Studio, the world of Edge of Eternity is about exploring, building up your characters, fighting and living an adventure to remember. Its universe blends fantasy, sci-fi, ATB battles (and alternately, classic turn-based battles), an open world, and a non-linear, branching storyline that’s driven by the choices you make.

A Kickstarter campaign for the game has already achieved 284% of its base goal, but there are still stretch goals to be met. An early concept demo is available on the Kickstarter pageThe game has also been Greenlit.

Edge of Eternity will be released in 2016 for Windows, Mac, Linux, PS4 and Xbox One.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
