Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for PC / Windows is an action RPG developed by Nihon Falcon, creators of the previous installments of the series. The game was published by NIS America on the western markets.

The Plot

The game takes place in the same Greek mythology-inpsired fantasy world as the series’ previous installments. Once again we play as the warrior Adol Christin. A sea monster destroys the ship on which our hero was traveling as we start the game. Adol, along with the rest of the crew, washes ashore on the cursed Seiren island. The survivors presently decide to bult a settlement to guard themselves from the local beasts. They albo begin to organize expeditions to nearby ruins.

After some time Adol starts to have recurring dreams about the mysterious girl named Dana. Finding her may be the key to learning the secrets of the island and getting back home.

Mechanics

Just like the previous games of the series, Ys VIII: Lacrimosa of Dana for PC / Windows is an action RPG where we will spend most of our time on fighting with the encountered enemies. The game has an arcade combat system. Adol is accopmanied by by various characters in his adventures, including rapier-wielding Laxia, Shahad who uses an anchor in combat, and Hummel who relies on his rifle with a bayonet. We can only control one hero at a time, but the game allows us to freely switch between them anytime we want to.

Every once in a while we will play as the titular Dana. Her parts of the game are rather different than those where we play as Adol. Instead of combat, they are more puzzle-oriented. The game also has a strategic element. As we explore the island, we will encounter other survivors of the crash and, if we help them, they will go to our settlement where they will take various, more or less important roles.
