Not all secret societies want to rule the world

Abyssian Knights is a new cross-media franchise produced and developed by Dev Null Studios with some help from our friends. The story is about a young woman named Aria DaCappa and her journey as a member of the Abyssian Knights, an ancient secret society wrongly accused of murder for the creation of a new world order. With the help of her friends, the group infiltrate a criminal organization linked to the death of Aria’s father, only to be lead into a web of demonic worship, deception and assassination.

The story illustrates Aria’s struggle to free herself from the burden she placed on herself by seeking closure on the circumstances leading to her fathers untimely death.

Originally designed as a JRPG for the PlayStation 4, fans will enjoy the story as the drama unfolds in a CG web series produced using the game’s cut scene engine. Fans can further explore Heavensfall on the the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the games to be released the future, learning more about the world their favorite characters live in. The goal of the project was to create a web series and game that was built off a unified engine to carry the look and feel of the show seamlessly into the game.
