Rayark has launched their new hero collection game after a length soft launch phase. Sdroica -sunset- looks to focus on presentation and storytelling while leaving out some gacha game staples like the stamina system.
Sdorica -sunset- is a gacha game that features a range of original heroes in a storybook-like setting. The game’s battles use a tile matching mechanic that allows players to activate attacks and skills for each of their three hero classes based on the tiles played. Less complex than titles that use match 3 mechanics, Sdorica’s battles have players matching combinations of 1, 2, or 4 orb tiles to activate their characters’ skills.
Sdorica puts a heavy emphasis on its presentation, with a soundtrack from the composer of Deemo, visuals reminiscent of a storybook and flashy skill animations. The game’s soundtrack is complemented by a cast of Japanese voice actors that includes:
- Ayako Kawasumi (DanMachi, Xenoblade Chronicles, Fate/ franchise)
- Aya Hisakawa (Dragon Ball Super)
- Takehito Koyasu (Fire Emblem Heroes, Fate/Grand Order)
- Tetsu Inada (Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Fate/Grand Order)
- Aoi Yūki (Persona 5, Sword Art Online II)
Though gamers shouldn’t expect much in terms of lines being read. These voice actors are mainly used to give some personality to the game’s characters with different reaction and short phrases that are used throughout the game.
Rayark International is best known for its successful rhythm games Cytus and Deemo as well as the action game Implosion. The Taiwanese developer’s most recent release is Cytus II, a premium game that has surpassed 100,000 downloads on Google Play and currently holds a 4.7 user rating.
Sdorica -sunset- is free and contains in app purchases. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information:
Legend has it that the world was once pitch black. Humans were puppets of the giant dragon “Sdorica”. As a “Watcher”, how will you change this world?…
Four years in development, Rayark Games’ latest work challenges the limits of visual design, music performance and story telling in a Role-playing game.
