The rest of the info is from the Famitsu interview with the developers (thank you again to wajinokiseki.blogspot.com for translation):
- For some time, the producer of at Spike Chunsoft, Terasawa and tri-Ace Gotanda wanted work on a project. It dragged on for 10 years but now two years that has changed. With the desire to provide valued aspect of Spike Chunsoft, the title took an unusual direction.
- 「Exist」 represents the wishes and memories of people, that 「Archive」 crystallizes.
For this work, the key word is 「Suspected」. The scenario is not a heroic genre.
According to the comments of Norimoto, it was decided the presence of other humans than 12 heroes. In the absence of a single hero, the game does not work by the presence of external romances but the group consciousness as the main characters (translation of the last sentence to be confirmed).
- The 12 heroes arrive on a planet protected by Amatsume goddess. Immersed in a conflict between gods, they advance while reflecting on their return to earth. There is a third aspect to side Proto Reksa and earth. We must move with balance to be able to return to earth.
"Who on earth return" is one of the important choices to make in the game. This will affect your journey during the game to get to the Ending.
- There was no basis to the very specific illustrator, but the unexpected proposal Mino, was appreciated. The characters represented corresponded to what the team was looking for. He is very happy because he wanted to try to RPG, having been specialized in drawings of girls.
He was charged with 15 important characters design. Since his arrival until now, it has been immersed in the storyline and setting up the game. Gotanda coordinated the character models to tune the design of Mino.
- The side view has been chosen to facilitate the improvement of the overall quality and the action items. In dungeons, sometimes you use the power of the evil god to progress beyond the various obstacles, thanks to the "Greed mode".
- Assumes 40 ~ 50 hours of play to reach the end. After the end, many elements will emerge such as Dungeons Extra for example.
- The game will be equipped with some elements such as Online boss of Time Attack. It is at 75% of development.
