You're Space Captain James Carmen, on a mission to stop "The Darkness" on the edge of the universe with your crew. However, on the way, you have to stop for refueling every so often. This requires interaction with whatever alien lifeforms are on the planet. Not every planet will be willing to give in so easily. Be prepared for battles, both mentally, and physically, as you go on your Long Journey to Darkness...
|Captain Carmen, the main character.|
An RPG with 3D backgrounds and 2D characters overlapped on it. You can explore the world around you, solve puzzles and fight enemies.
|An example of the overworld.|
|The battle system. Note the d-pad buttons on the ground.|
Eventually, you'll get partners who also use the d-pad. Think of it like coordinating two pong paddles at the same time with only one joystick. This allows you to things like juggle projectiles with your partner for Volley-Combos, which, if used in tandem with the Ultra-Volley, can do incredible damage to your foe.
