Welcome to Webb Village. Webb Village is your average pleasant storybook village with one peculiar trait. Webb Village has been suffering from a rare phenomenon for over a century. People disappear leaving no trace behind, something that they refer to as ‘Away’. Nothing to let them know when it’s going to happen or who´s next…

On the verge of becoming another ‘away’ victim, little Anella quickly jumps in the way to keep him from vanishing sacrificing herself instead. Her heroic action not only ‘aways’ herself, but all of the other villagers as well, leaving Sword alone.
Guided by a mysterious light, Sword finds his way to the Shuffle Dungeon where his adventure starts. There is a chance, to find the villagers and to bring them back, but can he do it before it’s too late?
Welcome to Webb Village, however long your stay.
