Arcus is the first game of the same-titled series of RPGs by Wolf Team.
In a world in which humans mastered the art of magic and started using it on each other, a man named Jedah Chaf leaves his home to fulfill his dream of becoming a knight, and to hopefully save his kingdom from imminent destruction.
While most of the game's disks have the header "ARCUS X1", Disk 4's header contains a developer message:
MACHIYAMAKUN WA SUKEBE
MACHIYAMA IS A PERVERT
This message most likely refers to Yukinori Machiyama, who is credited for the game's script.
