Ara Fell combines the best parts of Japanese-style roleplaying games with the best parts of western RPGs, as well as including elements of visual novels and adventure games to create a truly unique experience. Atmosphere, emotion and surprise lie at the forefrunt of Ara Fell's story, driven by deep and accessible characters, each with his or her own past, their own desires and their own motivations for joining Lita's quest. Relive the golden age of the RPG with a game that both pays homage to the past greats, as well as blazing its own trail.


Ara Fell (formerly known as Ara Fell: the Legend of Dirisetsu Hollow) began as a hobby project in 2004, and became one of the best-known and most-beloved freeware RPGs of its time. As is often the case with hobby projects, its author was forced to cancel it when he could no longer devote enough time to it. Ara Fell was reborn in 2015. Every line of dialogue was rewritten, the graphics improved, the music replaced and the gameplay completely redesigned from the ground up. After nearly 15 years, Ara Fell could finally be called a finished game. And we here at Stegosoft couldn’t be happier.


  • EXPLORATION - Ara Fell is a world meant to be explored! Jump, crawl, swim and even fly through the air to solve puzzles and discover new locations filled with hidden treasure, secrets and adventure! Every corner of Ara Fell is designed with exploration in mind.
  • OPEN WORLD - Most of the world can be traversed from the moment you leave Aloria Village, the heroine's home town... provided, of course, you're strong enough. A clever adventurer may be able unlock secrets and discover powerful equipment early in the game if he or she commits to taking advantage of the open nature of the game world.
  • TACTICAL COMBAT - Ara Fell may be a story-heavy game, but the world is still fraught with danger. Choose specialized equipment and statistics, customizing each character to best suit your play style, and to best thwart each boss battle's unique mechanics.
  • CHARACTER DRIVEN - When you join Ara Fell's unwitting heroine on a quest to save her homeland, you'll discover a world filled with vibrant characters who laugh, cry, crack jokes, lose their tempers, and even their will to go on as the size and scope of the curse that plagues Ara Fell becomes apparent. Friends and villains alike are not who they seem as the stakes grow ever higher...
