…..but soon we realize that there is more to this adventure than what we first thought. Explore a mysterious Planet driven by the subconscious mind of the main character: Divine.
Divine: The primary playable character and a goddess as young as the world she watches over. She is very useful to jump, double jump, speak, and interract with elements of the planet. But her main skill is to move objects with her telekinesis power to reach new zones. With these unique skills, can she discover her connection with the world she loves.
Rage: The first mask of Divine is a being of anger and muscle. Able to overpower red enemies with brute strength alone
Fear: The second mask of Divine is a being of almost ghostly fright. Swift and cold she is perfect against blue enemies.
Narrator: A nameless narrator that lurks the world of the young Divine. Though unsure of his true form, he can’t hide his malicious intent to Divine. He’s responsible for provoking the “Dark Thoughts”, blocking Divine from other zones of the world, and even make the world itself go against her. He can also make Divine and her sides dought themselves and attack each other. Can a monster truly be above a god?
Negative Thoughts: The primary enemies of Divine as she explores her world. With every zone infested with these things, they have adapted with the land to go against Divine. Leaving them alone will only cause the world to corrupt.
The dark tunnels hide horrible creatures, followers of Divine´s negative thoughts. Little by little, they are corrupting every part of the planet.
and many more dangerous creatures…
