Acquire provided this synopsis for the game:
In the distant past, when humans were still forming advanced civilizations, a war swept across the world.
In the midst of this conflict, a self-operating weapon that bore a resemblance to a young girl was constructed. This weapon, which could rend the earth with her arms and obliterate buildings in her path, became known for her red eyes that mercilessly eradicated one person after another.
This weapon, named ‘Holly’ by the humans, was so overpowering that she was sealed deep into the earth’s crust.
Many millennia later, Holly awoke from her dormancy in the dark magical ruins, swamped with an incomparable resentment for humans.
“I wish humanity to be extinguished.”
Despite the degradation of her weapon capacities to the point where she can only inflict minor damage to the ground or walls, Holly has only just started her campaign against the world above.
The gameplay will include an evolution system specifically for the game’s central figure, Holly. In addition to this, items can extend the capabilities of an altar. Moreover, players can construct traps to ensnare enemies.
