Dive into Astravia, a world torn by magic and brimming with bold quests,
engaging battles, and compelling secrets.





Legends of Astravia
is a story-driven role-playing game built on engaging battles and fulfilling exploration.
It takes its inspiration from Japanese-style RPGs like Golden Sun, Chrono Trigger, and Grandia.

The game starts off in Mordin, bordered by swamps and forests on the western edge of Astravia.
You play as Oliver, discovered unconscious by a mysterious magic user--known in the world of Astravia as mysticians--named Azel.

He considers you a suspect behind the breach of a local magic sanctuary,
but offers you the opportunity to prove yourself innocent as you journey there together,
taking care to avoid the ruthless knights that stalk the woods...






Engaging, character-driven storyline that will keep you attached until the end.

Entirely custom "Action Time Battle" system--with a completely unique twist.

Plenty of monsters, but no random encounters! You choose your own battles.

8-direction pixel movement that makes moving and exploring feel great.

Multiple party members with individual combat styles, stories, and secrets.

Various dungeons, caves, and towns to explore with unique puzzles and characters.

Many side-quests with special rewards.

Crafting / enchantment system for weapons, equipment, and items.







Spoiler: ShowHide


















Centuries ago, before calm villages and thriving cities,
we were fated to perish at the brink of an inevitable apocalypse.

The ground quaked with terror as the day of reckoning
manifested--the air burned with the sick certainty of death...

...and we begged to the Gods that our world would not be taken from us.

It was then that two figures appeared, casting their shadows across the horizon
and blotting out the sun. In awe of their presence, the ground went still
and the fires went silent--order returning to Astravia once more.

Hailed as legends from those who survived the Cataclysm, the First Shadow
was generous and powerful, but the Second Shadow was neither.
The two performed miracles said to be as dangerous as the
Cataclysm itself, digging seas with the wave of their hands,
shaping mountains with their shouts, and growing forests with only a whisper.

Perhaps their greatest feat, however, was their ability to
take the form of whatever they pleased.

And when the two Shadows grew tired of admiration,
they took the forms of mortals and vanished into myth.

The remnants of their power...the
Essence of their divinity, is all that remains to us.





Currently, there is no download available. Stay tuned for v3.0!

The first major demo is available. It's almost a completely different game from the first one.

From here, I will be making some minor updates periodically, hopefully with less space between them like this 3-month update!
