The Spirit Engine follows 3 travelers (of your choosing) who run into each other by very uncommon means. Their goal begins simple, they wish to learn how they arrived together. They are soon riddled with other problems, namely what the small floating object they follow is, and what secrets it holds. The game is a side-scrolling RPG, where chains are used to make up battle commands.
