In an isolated village on the edge of the world, a young boy named Axe dreams of seeing the outside world, although everyone is forbidden from venturing beyond the town borders. However, everything changes when a giant monster suddenly attacks the village, and Axe discovers he can fight using the power of a mysterious stone that turns his ideas into attacks. Through his trials of defending the village, he gradually unravels secrets of how the stones and the monsters came to be.
Anyone can become a hero! Dive into the world of the young, budding hero, Axe, as he rises up to defend his home, gains the support of fellow villagers, and uncovers the truth behind the giant monster attacks.

This charming title features game design by Game Freak and music composed by Toby Fox (Undertale).
