Meet Yukumo, a young girl traversing the world in her beloved airship. Upon arriving at a particular Far Eastern town to run some errands, her airship suddenly breaks down. She decides to explore the town to search for parts for repair; however, the town has fallen silent with no trace of the people who live there, the only inhabitants being a strange cat-like species.

Hop aboard Yukumo’s trusty airship to explore piers, valleys, and lakes. Gather the Sources of Earth to expand your scope of your adventure even further.
