TOKYO – Dec. 3, 2020.
“ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos“, the sci-fi, anime-style adventure with a twisting narrative and difficult choices from VR industry veterans MyDearest Inc., begin the fight to defend humanity’s last refuge today as an Oculus Quest 2 launch window title, also available on the original Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift devices.
Take control of 400-meter tall mechas called Makhia and square off against the Meteora, colossal alien shapeshifters who drove humanity’s last remnants underground 200 years ago during the events of TOKYO CHRONOS. Use defensive shields in the battle to fend off the Meteora’s onslaught, then deploy weapons like giant rail cannons to defeat the foes.
Experience the story of Chloe, an android tasked with the defense of humanity as a member of the organization Prometheus. She fights to avenge her fallen friend Coco with her AI assistant, Noa, created to resemble Coco. While humanity sees Noa as an uplifting force who charms them with her virtual concerts, Chloe struggles to work with someone who acts nothing like her departed friend.
Determine what the future holds for Chloe, Noa, and the rest of the Earth. ALTDEUS’s story features stunning twists and turns that lead to multiple endings and branching storylines. After reaching a climax, rewind time to find new branches in existing plotlines, discover new revelations and rewrite humanity’s fate.
ALTDEUS features a charming cast of characters created by renowned character artist LAM and sleek mechs created by the famous mecha designer I-IV (Aldnoah.Zero, 86, Re:Creators). High energy tunes including opening song “DESIRE” by ASCA (Fate/Apocrypha, Sword Art Online, TOKYO CHRONOS) and songs by R!N Gemie (PROMARE, Attack on Titan Season 2) will delight anime and mecha fans alike, with fans helping to bring the project to life after raising around $200,000 on Japanese crowdfunding platform CAMPFIRE.
“ALTDEUS: Beyond Chronos is finally here! Everyone at MyDearest including myself kept the faith that the game would ultimately represent what we initially set out to create,” said Haruki Kashiwakura, game director, MyDearest.
