It's time to go back to where it all began. Walthros is a world filled with floating fish, cool cats, and a long-lost past waiting to be unearthed. Bob is a part-time worker for an excavation company going through the motions and making ends meet until he accidentally comes across a buried secret that could reshape history as he knows it.

Features:

Turn-based combat with over a dozen unique playable characters
No random battles; carefully approach or avoid monsters in the field
Three difficulty levels to accommodate a range of player abilities
Explore a world filled with friends and foes; hang out with buddies to strengthen your bonds
15-20 hours of game play
Arcade minigames and watchable TV shows bring the world of Walthros to life
Soundtrack by Glock & Mr8bit
Powered by OHRRPGCE
