Giygas, in the Japanese version – Gigu (Jap. ギーグ Gi:gu, English . Gyiyg)), which will happen in the distant future. The game contains many elements traditional for the JRPG genre, such as a squad of heroes, turn-based battles, experience points, hit points. The action takes place at the end of the 20th century, for the most part in the fictional country of Eagleland. The heroes are opposed mainly by wild animals and people who have fallen under the influence of the evil will of Giygas.
