Description

Santria is a light-hearted, modern-setting RPG with a strong emphasis on exploration and character interactions, featuring a tactical battle system. Pine Falls is a small town in the Western States with numerous quirky characters you can socialize and romance with. The beloved Santria Co. is a local soft drink manufacturer whose newest product, Pine Tonic, is highly popular with children. Below the company’s surface, a dark secret awaits to be unearthed, including ancient alien technologies and cosmic horror. Incidentally, you discover the conspiracy during your everyday school life, resulting in the awakening of your psychic abilities. The plot is filled with pop culture references and spiced up with small pieces of mystery.

History

Santria has been Schotti's main project since he began developing it in RPG Maker VX Ace in 2015 using premade assets. By January 2016, Schotti had discovered and switched to Game Maker Studio, the engine in which Santria's development became a serious endeavour built with Schotti's own assets. In 2018, Crabby Sam was brought on to create the in-game character portraits, which ultimately lead to the formation of Cheekynauts.
