Japanese developer and publisher Kemco (http://www NULL.kemco-games NULL.com/) has released its latest English-language turn-based RPG, Covenant of Solitude (http://www NULL.kemco NULL.jp/sp/games/mnst/en/index NULL.html), for Android. Players will assume the role of Fort, a boy feared by his village for his genie blood. This blood grants Fort the power to summon and control monsters from four tribes: the Dragons, the Fairies, the Beasts, and the Vampires. The story involves an expansionist Empire and a struggle for control over Fort’s power.

Covenant of Solitude was co-developed by Kemco (http://www NULL.kemco-games NULL.com/) and Magitec (http://www NULL.aa NULL.alpha-net NULL.ne NULL.jp/esaki/index NULL.html). The game was originally released for Japanese cell phones as 「盟約のソリテュード (http://www NULL.kemco NULL.jp/applipage/12_game/mnst/solitude_a NULL.html)」 early 2012. Kemco’s last English-language release with Magitec was the RPG Grinsia (Android (https://play NULL.google NULL.com/store/apps/details?id=kemco NULL.magitec NULL.grinsia), iPhone/iPod Touch (https://itunes NULL.apple NULL.com/us/app/rpg-grinsia/id502495244)), also in 2012.

Story

A boy named Fort was persecuted by the people of his village because he has the blood of the genies, who can summon and control monsters. One day, the Empire invaded the village, awakening Fort’s genie abilities. Is his tremendous power for the defense of those he loves, or for their destruction? Fort will be the cause of a bitter battle over the blood of the genie, and curse his own fate.

Create characters freely

By forging a contract with Fort, monsters will join his party. Create and advance these characters to fight with Fort.
Combine tribe, gender, coloring and class freely to create a party that fits your own unique style.
The four tribes are the Dragons, the Fairies, the Beasts and the Vampires.
Each tribe and class has its own special qualities, giving you a wide range of possible characters.

Boost abilities by changing classes

Each of your characters can change classes, retaining the abilities from the previous class.
For example, when you change your dragon, with its strength and attack capabilities, from the fighter class that emphasizes physical attacks to the wizard class and its powerful attack magic, your character will be a truly formidable foe in battle, with both physical and magical attacks. Or by advancing a vampire wizard with superb magical abilities, then switching to the healer class, you’ll have a powerful magic user with access to both magical attack and healing skills. The biggest attraction of this game is the flexibility it brings to character building.

Enjoy more with additional points (SP)

By using additional points, you’ll gain access to a variety of rare items which are useful in clearing the game’s different stages. You’ll even be able to enter special dungeons!
