The game plot, characters, and storyline
The game is set in a fictional world known as Regnus. This is a far-off planet where there was a thriving civilization. The civilization collapsed, leaving behind ruins many centuries ago. The story focuses on how the civilization used to be run. Engram was a magical light responsible for the success of the civilization. This light gave power to the civilization. The story has it that a beast named Planetary Beast destroyed the civilization. As the game player, you get to explore the ruins of this civilization.
