Hooray! Crystal Story is now available to play!

Come and explore the sights of Smalltown. Here is a mini guide to get you started…


You can move around dungeons using a Mouse, a Keyboard, or a Controller. Choose any control scheme you prefer. Bumping into enemies while inside a dungeon will start battles. You can also collect treasure you find by interacting on it.


Explore the areas around Smalltown. New areas unlock as you explore further into Evil Cave. Be sure to check the map from time to time for any new areas!


The Town is where you can rest and take a break from exploring. You can buy or sell items on the Shop or rest at an inn. Alchemy will let you combine certain items to form a new one, while Reforge will create a random item from an existing one.
