Join Gail, a simple villager, who must heed the call for adventure when a great starship appears in the night sky and abducts all the adults. As the new oldest member of her fragmented community, she must set out to solve this great mystery. Little does she know of the grand adventure before her, the evil lurking in the shadows, and the role she will play in the fight for Earth’s very existence!

Armor Up!

Towns and villages serve as important hubs to rest up and equip Gail with stronger gear and essential healing items. Engage with a lively cast of NPCs to survey the land and find clues behind the mysterious abduction.

Brave the Dungeons

Explore ancient sunlit temples, forlorn ruins, sky-scraping towers, and more on your quest for the villagers. Solve the puzzles within using the variety of tools you’ll find along the way.

Fight Foes

Club the pillaging bandits, bomb the burrowing sand drakes, snipe the flying evil eyes, and run from the hulking metal golem. The world of Phoenotopia, while beautiful, teems with danger. Caution is advised.
