Here’s the full overview, via the Steam page:
Ray Gigant is a unique dungeon crawler RPG which combines dungeon crawling adventure with Japanese visual novel like story telling. Players will first be introduced to the gripping tale of Ichiya who is a young fighter shrouded in mystery. As the story progresses the player will be introduced to new characters which you later get to experience as the main character. There are a total of 3 different tales told in the perspective of Ichiya, Kyle and Nil.
Innovative Battle System
Unlike ordinary turn based RPG battles, Ray Gigant adopts a unique style where you will be fighting massive enemies from different distances and perspectives. Your party is comprised of 3 characters, each with their own unique abilities to engage in 3-way view battles. Also use the rhythm-based, Slash Beat system to unleash deadly attacks while feeling the fate of the heroes and heroine resonate through their bodies!
In a not so far away time of June 20XX… Earth’s major cities are being attacked by giant creatures called the Gigant. Each nation’s force tried to thwart the attacks to no avail. But then it was discovered that a single boy in Tokyo was able to defeat these monsters. His name, Ichiya Amakaze. This boy that defeated Gigants using a mysterious power called the Yorigami came to be known throughout the world. But, after defeat of the Gigants, he lost control of his power… After destroying the city he protected, he loses his conscious. It was then where he was detained and sent to a safe location where his fate would unfold…

In Ray Gigant, the story progresses by exploring and clearing the various dungeons called Megalosites. There a number of these dungeons and players will explore them on a 3D map.
The game features a dynamic 3-way view battle against towering Gigants. When facing huge Gigants, the characters within the party take position from 3 distances, each facing the Gigant with methods fit for use from their positions.
With the Yorigamis in coexistence with Ichiya and others, they gradually are taken over by the Yorigami, thus imparting the state of Parasitism. During this time, the characters will fight at the expense of their very lives.
