The Sky's Blade Story
This mode just shows the story of the Sky's Blade.
In the Beta version of the game the Sky's Blade was originally called the Sky's Blaze. The main villian of the game was originally the evil god Kurliz back from a 5,000 year sleep. Instead of the friends getting captured they were helping David and Thomas. The game was actually orginally going to be called David and Thomas: As Darkness Returns, but the creator thought David and Thomas: 365 Days of Darkness was a better title.
