Alterium Shift

When it comes to JRPG the future is bright. Lots of new projects on the horizon and Alterium Shift by Indie devs drass_ray & Mottzy is one of the most promising. Players guide a party of three young adventures on their training across the world and fight in turn-based combat inspired by Chrono Trigger and SNES games.

The Alterium Shift new demo (version 2.0) adds 3 new story paths, new missions, new areas, and new story content! So if you have never tried it, now it’s the best time to do it. The game is planned to be released in Q4 2023 on PC via Steam.

Below is an overview of the game, screens, and a trailer, while here is our interview with the devs.

Join three heroes in training as they learn to master their individual strengths and harness the power of Alterium Essence. With their training nearly completed, Dolion, their teacher, prepares them for the most important mission they’ve faced yet.


You’ll begin your journey with three heroes in training; Pyra, Atlas, and Sage. Their teacher, Dolion, strives to mold his students into heroes, ones better than himself. The three heroes are taking their final test before being sent off on an important and life changing mission. What fate awaits these heroes and can they accomplish the tasks set forth before them?


Dolion: From war hero to teacher, Dolion seeks individuals to mold into heroes themselves.

Pyra: A strict and loyal leader, Pyra steers her team as straight as she does her spear.

Atlas: A young, shy, and nimble Archer, Atlas delivers every shot with deadly accuracy.

Sage: A very talented weaver of Alterium Essence, with an ego that matches their skill.


Alterium Shift has a full featured turn-based combat system with a turn-order display for important decision making! Exploit enemy weaknesses and gain experience to grow your party into an unstoppable force! Of course, the loot you earn will also help you a long your journey as well.


Explore the world of Alteria. Meet new and diverse people. Find loot and hidden treasure! Take on new quests. The decision is yours and every decision is important!
