In a world where "Creatures," powerful beings based on real legends and myths from across the Earth, inhabit the land, girls with the ability to wield magic become "Masters"—able to summon and harness the power of Creatures to their command. Iruse Strenz is one such Master, a girl working hard to protect her village ever since the mysterious disappearance of her mother. The only clue to her whereabouts is a magical grimoire known as “Nursery Rhyme”—a tome full of mysterious symbols that no one in the village can even begin to decipher.
Together with her best friend Nika, Iruse spends day after day training her magic, but her mother is never far from her thoughts. One fateful day, a strange phenomenon occurs near the village which soon threatens everything that Iruse holds dear. Yet in the midst of it all, a path opens to the answers that she seeks…

Here’s what some reviewers of the Japanese edition had to say about Moékuri!
A Masterpiece. 'Moe SRPG' is a genre you see from commercial game companies often enough, but I feel like this surpasses them ... there's a lot of fun to be had in coming up with your own teams and strategies, and collecting all the creatures.
… All the characters are fully voiced outside of the story scenes, which really helps gives them all a lot of personality. For anyone who enjoys characterization stuff like that, it really enhances the fun of collecting new creatures …
Incredible Variety in Characters and Strategies. All the characters and the creatures in combat are just adorable. It's worth it just to look at all the art. Despite the huge number of creatures, they all have different strengths and weaknesses, and there's not one that doesn't feel unique.
With a successful Kickstarter and concurrent Steam Greenlight campaign, Culture Select aims to release Moekuri in Q4 2016 for Windows PC. The Kickstarter page is located atwww.kickstarter.com/projects/3
