Unleashed is a Dark 2D RPG, setting in the grim workd of Mystria.
A powerful curse has been cast across the magical world of Mystria. It changed people, who became the expression of their primordial sin. Hiding their darkest impulses wasn't possible anymore and their burning desire was the only thing guiding them.
Achivaras are the summoned form of a human's sins and virtues...
Indeed, after having their soul broken into ten parts, a discovery was made about controlling soul fragments. Only with the spirit's strength, it was now possible to summon creatures linked to one's soul. Some people even started to find ways to convert wild creatures into a part of their soul, in order to acquire more power.
While a soul can hold up to 10 different Achivaras, only 3 can be summoned at a time in order to fight. This is why fights are organized in 3v3 battles; when an Achivara dies, another one can be summoned. Each Achivara has stats such as attack, defense and speed. These stats will have an influence on the damage taken, inflicted, and also on the cooldown before the creature can act again. Stats can be modified by several factors such as Mercy's equipment.
Every map can be explored right from the beginning of the game. Indeed, there is no restriction linked to the story that would let you explore only a certain area of the game before completing some quests.
However, there is close to no level scaling in the game. While you can explore the world freely, each area has an average level. It means that, if you want to explore volcano lands, you can go towards them directly, but your level will be way too low and you will probably die at the first encounter you make.
For those who like challenge, you'll appreciate knowing that rarer resources are available in high level areas. It means that you can go there if you want to acquire money quickly, but there are lots of risks when compared to areas matching your level. As you will see, the accent has been put on interactions.
