The fault series returns with its first full release since fault – milestone two side: above, which originally released on PC in 2015, and on console in 2020. Experience a story that combines a novel-length script with cinematic flair, merging the beauty of hand-drawn artwork and animation with three-dimensional effects and visuals that bring the world to life.
Experience the story of Khaji, a gentle boy from a humble background who aims to become a painter and escape his boring, everyday life. That wish is granted with unforeseen consequences when he finds himself suddenly wrapped up in the world of manakravte, the magic that dramatically transformed his home kingdom of Rughzenhaide. Along the way, he’ll meet new faces and ones familiar to fault fans and discover shocking revelations.
Newcomers need not fear, as fault – StP – LIGHTKRAVTE features a standalone story that takes place five years before the events of fault – milestone one, where Princess Selphine and Royal Guardian Ritona found themselves exiled from Castle Luzenheide. A dictionary feature helps explain referenced events and terminology like manakravte for beginners.
