The Story of Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud is a action-roleplaying game. It was released in 2000 by the makers of Level-5. It was published by Sony Computer Entertainment and the PlayStation 2. The game's story focuses on a group of adventurers who band together to fight against an evil being called the Dark Genie, who has attacked and destroyed their home villages. The main protagonist is Toan, a boy who is given a magical stone called the "Atlamillia" by Simba, the Fairy King, which has the power to rebuild the destroyed lands.


The game was originally intended as a launch title for the PlayStation 2, but was ultimately released later in the year.[4] Dark Cloud was generally well received by critics, who praised its blend of gameplay types, although some did criticize its combat as repetitive.
