Crest of Gaia


Title screen from the PC-Engine release

Crest of Gaia is a retelling of Elthlead in a scenario-driven format. The game tells the story of a war between the Kingdom of Elthlead, led by King Sieghart, and the dark land of Velzeria, led by Böser.

At the outset of the game, Böser gains control of the Power of Gaia and uses it to begin a campaign to conquer the continent. His monster armies slay entire towns to create legions of zombies to send against the Kingdom of Light.

Sieghart, together with Elthlead's traditional allies, sets out on a quest to drive Böser back into the dark lands and restore balance to Gaia.
