Traveling around in her airship, Yukumo’s ship suddenly breaks down while on an errand run. Forced to explore the local town, Yukumo needs to find parts for her ship so she can manage repairs.

So, as Yukumo, the player sets off on an action adventure to freely explore this oriental fantasy town. Discovering scenic locations on the way, Yukumo can explore highways, bridges, ravines and more picturesque environments. The game’s main objective is to clear dungeons and collect items to fix the downed airship.
