Hunt down an eldritch cult in baron sengia’s Evening Starter, an urban fantasy dungeon crawler published by Kagura Games on multiple storefronts.
Evening Starter takes place in a world similar to our own, where if you’d believe in the existence of zombies, you’d be ridiculed by your peers. Except, in the world of Evening Starter, monsters do exist. During unusual events evoked by supernatural powers, it's possible for a part of our world to merge with another. This causes the area to grow and distort itself in a nonsensical fashion as supernatural creatures cross into our world.
The games’ protagonist is Ren Nosogi, who works as a sweeper, a person specialized in dealing with such supernatural events. This time, she was called to investigate an unusual apartment complex, where a missing person was last seen accompanied by an eccentric, hooded figure. As it turns out, the building is already being influenced by another world, and soon after Ren gets inside, it cuts itself from the outside to complete its transformation safely. Ren now has to join forces with survivors inside the building and find whoever’s responsible for disrupting the natural order.
Evening Starter is an old-school dungeon crawler. The player has to explore the floors of various mutated dungeons while trying to get to the final floor. There are items to find, puzzles to solve, and monsters to kill along the way. Combat is turn-based, with each character having access to a melee attack, a ranged weapon with limited ammo, and unique skills, such as Ren’s toxikinesis, which allows her to poison enemies and heal allies.
During her adventure, Ren eventually ends up with a sizable debt, and has to accept dangerous missions from the government to pay it off; however, she also has the option of selling her body to speed the process along.
Elegant but deadly, Ren is a freelance agent who specializes in cases that extend outside the ordinary.
Armed with the ability to manipulate poison known as Toxikinesis, she makes quick work of any supernatural elements she encounters in her field of work, and if that isn’t enough, there’s little her tried-and-true Colt Government can’t handle.
A devoted nun and a talented exorcist who due to an unfortunate turn of events ended up at the head of a church in dire financial straits.
Her healing ability and assortment of holy spells make her an indispensable ally in combat, and as such she was the first Ren contacted for help in her mission. Her kindness and compassion, however, while commendable traits for a nun, are perhaps also directly responsible for her tendency to be easily swayed and her inability to say no.
A secret government agent and an unofficial member of the PSIA who serves as Ren’s contact with official channels. Resourceful and calculating, he makes full use of a government-funded arsenal of tools and weapons while interweaving them with ancient shinobi techniques.
After the incident at the warehouse district, his mission-first attitude and their past work together made Seijirou the obvious choice for the role of Ren’s supervisor for this crucial mission.
A master of ancient martial arts, former GSDF ranger, and a former mercenary.
He quit the army and drifted from warzone to warzone as mercenary to hone his martial arts into a perfect tool of war. His past experience with evil cults drives him on his mission to improve his skills to where he could bring the Old Gods themselves to their knees.
