LEGRA tactical turn-based RPG that takes you on a journey through Legrand, a chaotic world that's torn apart by civil war and threatened by an otherworldly invasion. You play as Finn, the reluctant leader of a band of unlikely heroes, who soon discovers that the true peril to their universe lies within themselves.

GAME MECHANICS: Turn-Based Combat with Quick Time Event (aka ACT – Action Circle Tempo) and Interruption. Strategy is key! You may exploit opponents' weaknesses by taking advantage of attack types, like the Weapon Triangle in the Fire Emblem series (i.e. slash beats pierce, pierce beats impact, impact beats slash), as well as element types (i.e. fire, water, earth, lightning, air, light, and darkness).

Once the commands have been inputted completely for all present active combatants, you have to watch out for the Quick Time Event dial (aka ACT – Action Circle Tempo, as we call it), and press the correct button at the right time to get attack or defense bonuses. If you missed the ACT, penalties will be incurred.

The unique feature about our combat system is that with every turn, all characters and enemies move simultaneously – some are faster and some are slower, depending on their moves or animation speed. Additionally, interruption may occur when a character or enemy is channeling grimoire or if they get attacked first. Lastly, there is no random encounter.

Go On a Journey: Immerse in the rich cultures of Legrand. You are invited to roam through towns for a brief respite in between battles or trek down the dungeons to fight malicious monsters. Camera panning will follow your characters during exploration, while idling will cause the camera to zoom out so you can enjoy the scenery. Beware where you step though, as spiteful spirits are always lurking around the corner!

Deploy Your Troops to Wars: Put your war general hat on. As the game progresses, you will gradually amass troops that can be deployed to wars in various areas of Legrand. There are different objectives you have to accomplish in order to achieve victory, but generally, think about the troop types and terrains before strategically placing your troops on the map. Winning wars will increase the character's fame and in return, you will be rewarded with more troops.

Recruit NPCs to Revamp Your Headquarters: You can recruit Non Player Characters (NPCs) to enhance the facilities in your Headquarters. Legendary crafters or smiths are only available in the Headquarters. Fun skill-based mini games will also be offered in the Headquarters and you can play these games repeatedly to beat your own high scores.

Take a Detour for a Little Side Quest: Side quests range from 'get to know your characters better' to hardcore challenges if you're up for some fun. You will receive rewards for completing the side quests, for example a war general or an NPC to tend to your Headquarters.

Crafting & Loot: Collect loot (materials or junks) from slain enemies and decide whether you want to sell them for money, or use them to upgrade your characters' equipment and craft necessary items.

Customize Your Menu: You can customize items and grimoire that characters can wield in combat, set combat formation, review journal to track quests, use restorative items to restore lost health, and input points to level up.

Character Leveling System: You can choose however you want to level up (MMO-style).

Grimoire (Magic) Learning System: Linked to the character leveling system, characters will acquire new grimoire abilities by fulfilling the requirements.

When a newly developed teleportation device malfunctions at the Millennial Fair, young Crono must travel through time to rescue his misfortunate companion from an intricate web of past and present perils.
