Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection

Originally released in Japan as Zwei II Plus and developed by acclaimed RPG developer Nihon Falcom, Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection is a charmingly presented action RPG featuring a unique food-based experience system, a colorful cast of characters, and a quirky, standalone narrative. When the haughty vampire princess Alwen du Moonbria saves the life of brash, treasure-hunting pilot Ragna Valentine in exchange for a blood contract, the unlikely duo must set off to recover Alwen’s stolen magic and usurped castle. The game’s real-time combat is tied to a unique leveling system that allows players to choose when to apply experience toward leveling up or whether they should save it for extra perks later on, and pets can fight alongside players to help take down some of the massive bosses encountered on this lengthy adventure through the land of Ilvard. Fans of vampires, treasure-hunting, fairies, ninjas, luchadores, cat-people, vintage airplanes, magic castles, robots, chickens that lay bombs, and more will find lots to love!  

Zwei: The Ilvard Insurrection was developed by Nihon Falcom and is published worldwide for Windows PC by XSEED Games via Steam, GOG, and the Humble Store by Humble Bundle with a 10% off launch discount from its regular selling price of $29.99/€29.99/£24.99. This Windows PC game is not rated by the ESRB. More information on the game can be found on its website at
