Developed by MI Matrikel 19

When light and darkness split the earth - everything chooses a side.While yokai and animals have always endured in the darkened forests, humans with their spirit birds remained in the safety of the towns. They intended to keep the balance between the scales of harmony. But time weakens the link between humans and spirit birds. A yearly festival of light shall strengthen their bonds. During the celebration, a defender of the light who shall carry the title of "ampguard" is chosen. His mighty armour strengthens the bond between the wearer and his spirit bird. It becomes their burdon to shield the festivities from the advancing corruption of the dark. When the festival buzzes proudly, the troops of night come creeping from the forest's depths to drown the festival's radiance. Only the ampguard is the ray of hope within the last stand against the darkness.

Ampguard is an action-packed rogue-like single player experience with an adaptable combat system and strategic gameplay elements.

Discover your strategy: The unique combat system offers you a variety of combinations to assign to your shards. Personalize the moveset of your ampguard and win the battle!

Improve yourself constantly: New dangers await you in every zone. Take on new challenges and benefit from their advantages. Combine and upgrade your shards at the workbench to be ready for the next battle.

The Celtic society, a complex tapestry of different religions, human cultures, and mortal and immortal races such as the Mourians, Werewolves, Goblins, and monsters threaten to tear at every seam. Will you support the immature, yet rightful, heir, or the pragmatic general in their bid for the throne? What alliances will you forge, what friendships will you foster, what romances will you pursue, and... what will you do when you are suddenly thrust into Medieval Spain?

Where are your immortal allies now, and what has become of the souls of your mortal friends? Discover changes made to the land over a thousand years of cultural change. Could the corrupt magicks that interfered during your meeting with the Tuatha have led to the destruction of all that the Celtic world held dear?
