Kristala is a Dark Fantasy ARPG that places you in the role of a feral feline warrior who must master the six magic specialties of the sacred Kristals to prove yourself worthy of joining ranks with the famed Raksaka warriors - powerful protectors of your species.
As you battle your way across the six clan lands, you soon discover a terrible curse has mysteriously transformed Ailur's creatures into mutated, monstrous beasts bent on destruction.
Uncover and upgrade a multitude of weapons, spells, armor sets, and additional items as you embark on your Raksaka Proving and strategically battle to restore peace to Ailur. Meet and interact with unique and varied characters while journeying across an otherworldly fantasy planet that's overflowing with untold stories ripe for unraveling.

Astral Clocktower Studios is a women-owned game development studio based in the Northeast US. Founded in 2018 by Alexis Brutman, Tiffany Gomez, and Sarah Schaffstall, the ACS dev team has since grown into a rich and culturally diverse family of 30+ creators hailing from all over the world.
The Astral Clocktower culture and key pillars are centered around celebrating diversity, equality, and inclusion in the traditionally male-dominated gaming space. We encourage an “open door” atmosphere, free from judgement, that celebrates the vast and diverse cultures our team members represent and bring to our family.
We hope to share our unique voice and fresh perspective with the gaming industry and strive to inspire gamers from all walks of life with diverse and relatable characters, immersive storylines, impactful themes, and smart gameplay mechanics.
The haunting and ethereal original soundtrack for Dark Fantasy Action RPG Kristala is composed by the incredibly talented AdLibPiano, whose beautifully dark and whimsical tracks help bring the world of Ailur to life.
Thanks to the recent success of the Kristala Kickstarter campaign, the game's soundtrack will also now feature new, original work by Winifred Phillips, who's known for her award-winning compositions featured on some of our favorite games, including Assassin's Creed and God of War.
