Septerra Core Description:
is a role playing game in which you play a futuristic junk scavenger on a quest to seek out your creator. Enter a world where the laws of nature work in strange new ways, allowing continents to orbit at different elevations around the planet. Where concentric World Shells create seven unique ecosystems, and Bio-Engineering has ushered in a revolution of societal changes. Where living battleships float overhead, and Junk Pirates roam the darkness. A world whose Core is a living computer, watching over the fruits of its master's creation. A world devised in the ancient past as a test for its own inhabitants to unravel...
You are Maya, a junk scavenger, surviving on refuse dumped from above. Yours is a world of layers, in which continents orbit at different elevations around the planet. Those at the top, the Chosen, consume massive amounts of energy and dump their waste down to the layers below. Now they have begun a descent to the Core, a living computer, in their search for the Gift of the Creator, fabled to bestow great power. At first you stand in the way of the Chosen, fighting to slow their march to the Core, and protect your homeland. But it is you who will ultimately discover Septerra's true nature, as you journey out of the familiar surroundings of your home country, and come face to face with the Legacy.
You can operate within hundreds of locations in a large, fully explorable world. Recognizable adventure interface allows you to tap into the complex options of the game, without overly complex menus. In addition to the main character, you may choose from eight companions, each with a unique background story, motivation and skill set. Clock based combat has all the strategy of turn based combat, but keeps the game fast paced. Expansive 16-bit backgrounds are natural and non-repetitive.
