In the world of Spriggan, there exists an ancient artifact with the power to change the world forever. Depending on who comes across the artifact, society can either turn into everyone’s greatest nightmare or continue to be the peaceful world that it is. That’s why it is up to ARCAM, the organization tasked with protecting this power, to save the day. However, with conflicting opinions and enemies at every corner, it’s clear that humanity has to work fast to live to see another day.
More on the official synopsis here:
As high-speed communications networks cover the globe and the peering eyes of satellites are able to expose all secrets, the armies of great nations clash as they seek to uncover and research these artifacts, which possess an unfathomable “power.”
A member of this ancient civilization carved a message into a plate: “Protect our legacy from evildoers.” Taking this message to heart, one organization aims to seal away this ancient civilization for good. The elite secret agents of this organization are known as… Spriggans.
