description

A fledgling Anagativan warrior is called by the ancient, sacred crystal to prove her worth. Beneath the spectral moonlight of Ailur—across desolate swamplands, crumbling ruins, and abandoned villages long forgotten by time—a wicked sickness begins to stir. Are these mutated monstrosities all just part of the test...or could it be there’s something much more sinister at play?

Kristala seamlessly fuses fast, ferocious, 3D combat with smart storytelling and rich, robust RPG mechanics. Uncover and upgrade a multitude of weapons, spells, and additional items as you explore a wild, wonder-filled world shrouded in both mystery and magic.

Come, let us transport you from the confines of your reality into the unbounding, unearthly expanse of the surreal.

history

Astral Clocktower Studios is a female-owned, independent game development studio based in Central PA, USA. Born from the passion of three fantasy fanatics and animal-loving gaming gurus, the studio set out to create a title that effortlessly combines the heart-racing thrill of fierce combat with the epic wonder and imagination of saga-driven lore.

 

In development since mid-2018, Kristala aims to do just that. With its dual emphasis on story-centric gameplay and quick, crushing combat, the game not only tugs at the heartstrings and delights with charm, but also somehow speaks to our most primal of instincts—to kill or be killed.

 

Though ambitious for an inaugural title from a fresh-faced indie studio, Kristala sets the perfect tone for what can be expected moving forward from Astral Clocktower Studios: a body of work rife with only the most unique and engaging audio, visual, and gameplay experiences.
