The Island of Eternal Struggle: The Demo
A downloadable game for Windows
Meet Ian, a "genetically pure" soldier who has successfully fled the Island of Eternal Struggle, an island that has been gripped in permanent war. In doing so, he has inadvertently tipped the scales in the fight between good and evil, and the war begins to spread outwards from the island. In his journey to survive, he meets a disco-loving cyborg named Xenon, a shunned oracle named Faye, and a lush viking named Bera. This group of misfits inevitably discover that they may be the only ones to stop a global catastrophe that's been silently stewing in the shadows of an otherwise seemingly peaceful world, oblivious to the existence of the Island of Eternal Struggle.
The demo contains two dungeons from The Island of Eternal Struggle of the sillier variety. In Beak's Peaks, Ian and the gang have to get to the town of Kami, but they have to traverse a mountainpass first... only to discover that it's been overrun by birds! In The Raver Warehouse, the group discovers that Xenon is missing and look for him at a rave party. Both dungeons include minigames, random encounters and bosses. Each character has 3 out of their 6 classes available with some of the skills unlocked, so experiment with the job system as you pummel birds and ravers!
