A crisis has befallen our world. For centuries, we have depended on the Kingdom Stone . . . but its strength is fading. It cannot keep up with our growing demand for energy. The Prince of Shuigang, poisoned with madness over the death of his Father, has spread machines across the land to steal energy from other Kingdoms. Tensions are growing, and I fear that war may be inevitable.
- The Magister, narrating the plot of Freedom Planet

Freedom Planet is a combat-based 2D platformer and the first full-scale game from independent developer GalaxyTrail.

Synopsis

The planet, Avalice, has long known a tenuous peace thanks to the Kingdom Stone, an orb of unknown origin that outputs enough free energy to power every device in the world, seemingly without limit. The Kingdom Stone is beginning to weaken, however, and the planet's three ruling Kingdoms are poised to engage in an all-out war over control of this most precious resource. Add that to a "coup d'etat" within one of these Kingdoms, instigated by an invading alien army, and Avalice's future is looking grim.

Enter three unlikely heroines: the Dragon, Sash Lilac, who unwittingly gets involved when she witnesses a strange airship crash-land and grows concerned for the well being of its pilot; the Wildcat, Carol Tea, whose dedication to her best friend leads her to undertake whatever challenges fate throws her way; and the Orphaned Puppy, Milla Basset, whose quest for nothing more than mere companionship inadvertently brings her directly into the line of fire.

Together, this Trio of Heroines must somehow ingratiate themselves to each of the Three Kingdoms, stop an all-out alien invasion and learn the secret nature of the Kingdom Stone before its power wanes... and before a world war breaks out around them.

Game Modes

The player can choose between two Game Modes in the Main Game:

  • Adventure Mode: Offers the full experience with fully voiced Cutscenes. Initially only playable as Lilac or Carol, with Version 1.20.6 adding Milla[1] to the playable roster after the Player clears Relic Maze for the first time as either of the two.
  • Classic Mode: Nearly identical to Adventure Mode, but removes most of the Cutscenes for a more streamlined and (as the name implies) classic gameplay experience.

Clearing a Save File in either Game Mode lets Players select from all Stages.

The Player also has Optional Game Modes that include:

  • Time Attack: Each of the Playable Characters can go through all of the unlocked Stage again for the fasted time.
  • Shang Mu Academy: Each Playable Characters can go through a series of Target Smashing Stages for the fasted time.
  • Mahjong: A small Mini-Game that can be unlocked by collecting all 10 Star Cards in any of the Stages.

The Academy and Mahjong are accessed through the Time Attack menu.
