The story starts out with the protagonist getting a tip from their fortuneteller friend about some treasure hidden in a place called the “Silent Castle.” Upon arrival, darkness covers the sky and monsters begin to assault the Silent Castle before their eyes. Just as the party was about to give up on the treasure and return, they spot a girl on the castle balcony, moments away from getting attacked by the monsters. And from there, the rescue begins.
The main character designs are being handled by Gaou who worked on Fantasy Earth Genesis as well as some art for Fire Emblem Heroes. The music is being handled by Shota Kageyama who previously worked at Game Freak as a composer and sound leader across various Pokémon games since 2009, which he continues to do as part of his own company SPICA MUSICA that was founded in 2014.
The animation production is being handled by studio A-CAT.
