Baldr Sky is a combined release of the Japanese games ‘Baldr Sky Dive1 “Lost Memory”’ and ‘Baldr Sky Dive2 “Recordare”’. The story is set in the future, where people implanted brain chips into themselves to escape to a virtual work created by AI technology. However, this has side effects that no one could have predicted, except for every sci-fi movie about AI taking over the world.
The story follows freelance mercenary and simulacrum pilot Kou Kadokura. His life mission is to catch those responsible for an event known as Gray Christmas, the tragedy that destroyed his once peaceful life. However, due to amnesia, he‘s having trouble remembering things as he awakens in the middle of a bloody virtual battlefield, riding inside a mechanical body with many questions on his mind.
A woman is calling him Lieutenant, and he’s unsure who he can trust when he has so many gaps in his memory. As war rages in dystopian Suzushiro City, all eyes are on Kou, the man with the answers to the world’s questions locked up inside of him. He must thread the needle amidst the delicate political balance to survive, regain his lost memories, and avenge the lives of the loved ones he lost. Players will unravel all the mysteries in this mech action game in a lovingly-crafted, unique cyberpunk setting.
Gameplay features five difficulty levels where players can customize their mech to fit their playstyle. The gameplay combines 3D action and visual novel storytelling for a hybrid gameplay experience.
