Vambrace: Cold Soul has a well crafted and detailed setting, which has a tabletop feel. Some of the races may be somewhat derivative for fantasy (Drow, Elves, Dwarves), but the Foxier race has a more Korean background. A lot of the lore exposition is delivered through Codex pages that you find as you explore. Personally, I found that all the reading eventually paid off as the later story chapters in the game draw from the exposition text.
The art in this game is probably it's most exceptional feature. This isn't a Japanese anime game. The art is hand drawn in the Korean Manhwa style, with some western fantasy influence.
