Elfscape: Ancestors is a platformer, telling the story of a temple Guardian. The Guardian is asleep, waiting for the prophecy to come true - when the Chosen One shall descend underground, he'll fight a victorious battle against a Demon. One day, the Guardian is awakened, and she quickly realises the arrival of the Chosen One is not yet happening. So, what was the reason for waking her? Elfscape: Ancestors brings 24 levels, distributed into 6 environments, through which you'll be accompanied by an epic story told through visual-novel-like elements.
