Nihon Falcom is largely known for their Ys and Legend of Heroes franchises, but they do occasionally experiment with other one-off games. Such was the case with Gurumin, a 3D platform game that originally released on PC some 11 years ago in Japan (and then was later released on PSP). Now, the title is being released as Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure here in the West.
The story focuses on a young girl who can see and make friends with monsters (but who are also invisible to everyone else) and must find a legendary drill that can drive away evil monsters known as Phantoms, who "monsternapped" most of the inhabitants in Monster Village.
There are a number of features in this version of the game including updated HD graphics, hidden characters/items, non-linear gameplay set in over 30 stages within a variety of environments, and more.
Gurumin: A Monstrous Adventure is slated for release on Steam and other PC digital download services on March 30th.
