Dark Rose Valkyrie on PC Windows is a classic jRPG game set in an alternative reality in which humanity fights against monsters created by an extraterrestrial virus. The producer of the game is the Japanese Compile Heart studio, best known for the Hyperdimension Neptunia series, as well as many other jRPGs inspired by it. Two key creators of the popular Tales of the cycle took part in the works on the title. This is about the character designer Koski Fujishima, and the screenwriter Takumi Miyajima.
The story presented in the Dark Rose Valkyrie Crack takes place in an alternative reality, in which in 1929 a meteorite containing an extraterrestrial virus fell on Earth. People infected by him turn into terrifying creatures commonly called Chimeras. In a short time, nearly three percent of the entire world population fell victim to the virus. In response to the threat, Japan closed its borders and created special strike forces with unique weapons aimed at fighting the Chimeras. Players take the role of Captain Asahi Shiramine commanding one of the units fighting monsters. Among his duties is to supervise his charges, who may be dormant Chimera agents, who in the most unexpected moment will strike with their comrades.
Dark Rose Valkyrie reminds in many respects other productions of the Compile Heart studio. We lead a team of several people, exploring the vast, but deprived of independent or possible interaction with the surroundings, three-dimensional locations depicting various types of underground or interiors of buildings. We have a starting point where we supply new equipment and receive further missions from superiors. Duels take place in separate arenas, after getting in contact with enemies moving on the map. The battles themselves take place in turn-based mode. Players can, however, influence the order of attacks by using special abilities and combos to slow down enemies.
A large part of the interaction between the characters has been presented in a form known from visual novel. An important part of Dark Rose Valkyrie is a system of interviews with subordinates, in which by asking questions we try to discover and then decide which branch member is a traitor. The game randomly selects a double agent every time you start a new game.
The Dark Rose Valkyrie Torrent audiovisual set does not deviate from the standards set by other Compile Heart games. So we have at most a correct three-dimensional graphics, devoid of any advanced tricks and effects, to which we were accustomed to high-budget productions of the genre. The strong side of the game, however, are projects and two-dimensional portraits of the figure by the already mentioned Kosciusz Fujishima.
