Ys: The Vanished Omens is an action role-playing game (RPG) that marked the beginning of the Ys series, a franchise celebrated for its engaging storylines and innovative gameplay.  The game follows the story of a young and brave swordsman named Adol Christin. Adol embarks on a quest to uncover the secrets of the ancient and vanished land of Ys. The narrative unfolds in the land of Esteria, which has been plagued by evil and misfortune, stemming from the mysterious disappearance of Ys. As players guide Adol through his journey, they encounter various characters, unravel the land's mysteries, and battle formidable foes.

Unlike traditional RPGs where players actively select attack commands, combat in Ys is more dynamic. Players run into enemies to attack, with the direction and position of impact affecting the damage dealt and received. This system requires strategic movement and timing, adding a unique twist to the game's action sequences.

The game incorporates classic RPG elements such as exploration, dialogue with non-playable characters, quest completion, and item collection. Players explore diverse environments, from open fields and dark dungeons to bustling towns. As they progress, they gather equipment and items, which enhance Adol's abilities and are crucial for advancing in the game.

The story-telling is rich and engaging, with a well-developed lore that draws players into the world of Esteria and Ys. The story unfolds through dialogues and encounters, gradually revealing the history and secrets of the ancient land.
