"We are fated,
despite being beloved."
Astrea is a story of a senior high school student who unknowingly follows his fate to become a hero. That is—meeting a mysterious girl and being led to a mystical realm—then realizing that the world he knew was far more different than what the history textbooks made it out to be.
Humans were born beloved by the gods. However, despite being born from the same father, humans were powerless next to the gods. In order to protect mankind, the gods decided to create two separate realms. “Terra” for humans, and “Caelis” for the immortal beings—two realms separated by a plane known as the “Void”.
The gods then chose to silently observe and let the humans flourish on their own. As civilizations passed, man's knowledge of the gods slowly descended to obscurity and consigned to oblivion—when in reality these gods still walked amongst men with no one realizing—except for a few chosen who were bestowed with special powers. These gifted humans call themselves “Luminare”. With the guidance of the gods, they protected Terra from anyone who dared to harm it. Little did they know there is a being that even the gods themselves fear threatening our world.
Should the hero protect the only world he knows of, or should he unravel the secrets of the forgotten realm of the immortals? Only you can decide.

We are Spica Ink and we are a small game development studio
Our current project, Astrea: Star of Thelema is our first one. Despite it being our first, we are aiming as high as the stars. We aim to create a game that we ourselves would like to play, and tell a story that we would like to read and experience over and over again. We are fans of games and are highly inspired and fired up to make one of our own. Astrea is where our talents, knowledge, and passions meet. Just like the Spica star, together we hope to shine brighter.
