Official description

From the European game box:

The creator of the famous "Shining" series of adventure games, Team Sonic, return with their best and most advanced game yet. A gripping good versus evil storyline, massive quest, great 3D graphics, excellent fighting action and puzzles-a-plenty, make this a must for all Saturn owners!

Comment

A pseudo-sequel to the genesis RPG Shining in the Darkness.

First-person RPG with pre-rendered monsters and a soundtrack by Motoi Sakuraba (of Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile fame). Great dungeon design and cool story.
