About The Game
Space Date: 346
From a power yet undiscovered, a new generation will be born.
Our tale begins on the primitive planet of Roak where Roddick lives in the peaceful and uneventful town of Kratus.
As a member of the village’s local “Defence Force” tasked with the protection of Kratus, Roddick learns of a mysterious disease that has broken out in the neighbouring town. Those infected turn to stone, but continue to live on in a petrified state.
Roddick, along with his two friends Millie and Dorne, make their way to the neighbouring town. Informed of a cure for the sickness, they head to Mt. Metorx where a healing herb is rumoured to grow. When they reach the summit, the party encounter Ronyx and Ilia, who appear before them in a pillar of light.
Thus, the story of STAR OCEAN begins...
