In a quagmire of endless war, conviction is your only way out. Observe every facet of the world, and witness a kaleidoscope of ideals.

Project: The Perceiver explores clashing beliefs in a fantasy world. Experience a chaos-ridden world and meet a variety of characters as the Master of Varietas. Consolidate their distinctive ideals into masks, and engage in the fiercest battles.
