Synopsis

The protagonist Eugene enters the military academy with his supernatural power 'Guard'. However, nowadays he frequently has nightmare about his childhood. While the students in Military Academy still attend the classes, unexpected raid by giant gimmicks attacks the school. Although Eugene and his friends do not know what's going on, he has to fight against. ​ While Eugene participates in the war, he even finds suspicious points on his close people.. Why does he have nightmare? what is the secrets that lies beyond the future?

 About Background

Decades ago, mankind found the materials that they have not seen previously. ​ While all the scholars have been vigorously discussed about materials, a great number of newborn babies were reported for their abnormalities: making jewel-like materials in their hands. Researchers managed meticulous examination on the babies. Researchers soon found out when they merge two materials, selected people can execute the supernatural powers. They called it ‘birthstone’. From that discovery, mankind have established a great development in every field, especially in science, and military.

About Birthstone

Only 0.1 percents of people born with the birthstone. Children who has their inborn talents are sent to organizations to educate their supernatural powers, and refine their birthstones. Through using their stones as media, they can execute supernatural powers. Supernaturals are divided into three categories: Attackers, Guardians, Amplifiers. The form of weapon is limitless, from swords to the dual wield pistons. They usually hold their stones in the form of accessories, and transform it to weapon when it’s necessary. However, battle planes can only be operated by inserting their stones. 

Military Academy

Only top 0.1 percent inborn talent children enter National Military Academy. Eugene belongs to this school. Student usually joins the military right after the graduation.

Relations Between Countries

Heden (where Eugene belongs) and Sira have long history of the war. Nowadays, they have built the convivial relationship in various ways. However, when the ambassador was assassinated by the other, they quickly changed into combative relations. This incident influenced the relationships in extremely negative ways, that now they are about to raise the war. 

 The Horizon of Three Seconds

Enormous beam of light that covered the sky a decade ago. No one knows the exact reason for this phenomenon.

Risks and challenges

Fund helps us to concentrate on the development fully. since we both have other jobs, time is not enough for us to fully concentrate on the game development. Since there is only one member who can draw the illustrations, she has to manage all the visual aspects of the game at the same time she concentrates on her own work.
By the funding, we would have our financial support and have commission. Funding will support us to develop our game.
