True to the source material
Easy to understand and control
The game loop revolves around the narrative's central mystery: That your new Mistborn powers are weaker than commonplace. Through this common idea, the loop's elements power one-another.
The story explores why your powers start out weak and how to fix it.
You start with weak powers and upgrade them, both through the narrative and by using the powers.
As you upgrade your powers, you unlock areas and secrets you couldn't reach before.
The heir of a noble house gets kidnapped and, in an attempt to escape, unlocks powers well-known to be fearsome, but the powers are not as strong as they should be. Can you solve the mystery and strengthen your powers to stop the kidnapper from swarming the city with monsters?
