From Official Website

This secion has been translated into English by Jetroyz from discord

Arknights is a mobile strategy game with a fantasy theme. In the game, players are in charge of an ark carrying "monster operatives" to investigate disasters occurring due to the mysterious Originium ore. In this expansive yet dangerous world, you may encounter ruined cities in the wastelands, fantastical fairy tale kingdoms, undecipherable mysteries, and maybe even join in cruel and brutal wars. Come and join this world full of fantasy and mythical creatures, and experience legends and imagination, emotions and relationships!

This is a world filled with magical creatures. Facing uncertain future, some of them are just surviving by the final embrace of dying warmth by eradicating other competitors. Some are ridiculed for their dreams, but nobody heard their stories. Some are grasping the fleeing glimpse of light while facing impending obliteration, determined to exhaust the final energy of their tenacity. Audaciously believing themselves to be an influence that can change the world, only to find out at the last moment that their blind focus had harmed what was truly preciously and led to irrevocable reckoning?

In the corridor of past times, many different voices echo inside the mind.

A vague world is built by consolidating the fragmented thoughts from < 3.0 >. Arknights is a brand new, original creation, with magical creatures set as the basic gears that keep the world-machine turning and a story that focus on survival day by day. >This is part of the collection of unfinished ideas from < 3.0 > and concept art from early drafts. Even though the current direction is to [develop on the] mobile game [platform], but we hope to introduce everyone to this concept child of ours using this opportunity. This >Child is infused with many friends’ and my own thoughts, much gratitude to the other creators who poured their own Children into this strange world, bringing various imaginations and fascinations to life.

Of course, this project is still at early stage, the Child is still an infant, there are many issues still. But I hope everyone can be part of the experience as soon as possible, and everyone can foster more interesting ideas by interacting with this Daughter. She loves logical criticism for improvement and support. She would love to hear your voices.
