Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection Brings Supernatural Fun On PC Today

Halloween’s over but vampires are still in according to Zwei: The Illvard Insurrection!

Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection

It’s been a long time coming, but Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection has finally come to the West.  Created by well-acclaimed RPG developer Nihon Falcom, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection is a standalone story that follows the the adventures of a proud vampire princess named Alwen and a reckless treasure hunter Ragna Valentine. Together they form an unlikely duo after Alwen binds him to her service through a blood contract, all in hope to use him to help recover her magic and ancestral castle. The game boasts a real-time combat system that is uniquely tied to gaining experience through the food the duo eats, allowing players their own choice on how to level up. And if they get stuck, there’s always Nihon Falcom’s inclusion of pets in the game that can be a huge help!

  • A Game Those That Love Quirky Narratives Will (Not Surprisingly) Love: Are you a fan of vampires, treasure-hunting, fairies, ninja, luchadores, cat-people, vintage airplanes, magic castles, robots, chickens that lay bombs and the odd chain-smoking nun?  Then you’re in luck as the residents of Ilvard are a strange bunch.
  • Two Playable Characters At Once: Players will discover that they can use Ragna’s physical attacks and weapons to compliment Alwen’s magic. Through these combinations, they’ll find a way that feels best fit their playstyle!
  • A Unique Food-Based Levelling System: Experience in this game is earned through eating food. This allows player’s a choice on how they experience the game. If players want to munch on the first thing they get their hands, they can! If players would rather wait by saving up to create culinary masterpieces, they can! It all goes towards a greater gain in the end!
  • Newly Voiced Lines Never Heard Before: Now there are over 2,000 voiced lines involved in the game to bring the world of Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection to life!


You can buy Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection for PC today via Steam, GOG and the Humble Store for $29.99/EUR29.99/£24.99.
