Dead Gear is a 2D Action-Adventure (or Metroidvania) game with RPG elements, an enormous world to explore, and a complex storyline that can result in over 12 completely different endings, depending on how you play.



The story follows a young mage-in-training named Illyia, whose airship crashes into a mysterious place known as the Dead Gear. Illyia must reunite with her missing twin sister, and find a way back home. But gradually, things start to get complicated...



There are dozens of characters in Dead Gear that Illyia can recruit and interact with, each with their own motives and storylines. Each character has the potential to meet an untimely end, depending on Illyia's choices and actions. No character is safe in the end, and you can't save them all.

There are 12 major endings, and being fairly modular depending on choices made, there are several variations of each ending, resulting in over 50 total different endings.



There are over 20 different distinct areas to explore, from a magical garden floating in the middle of the sky, to a technological facility deep underground, to an ancient, snow-covered present-day metropolis. Illyia must piece together what happened on the Dead Gear.



Illyia can level herself up by using the SAVE Personal Upgrade System (but your resources are finite!); you can't max out everything, so make your choices count.



Dead Gear is a sort of love letter to Metroidvanias and JRPGs developer Kirb has played over the ages.
