We are a group. We travel to save our village. Without us they could not breathe, although we can breathe. Our village depends on us and maybe the world...Who are we?

Breathe= inhale and exhale air?
Travel= physically? Go somewhere and come back? Go somewhere and not come back? Is the destination relevant?

Is there anything supernatural involved? Can they not breathe because they are underwater? Smothered in some other way? Frozen? Dead?
Is the entire world unable to breathe? Will it be unable to breathe if the journey is not taken? Will the village be able to breathe once the group returns?
The group= 10 people or less? 10-100 people? More?

Is the world earth? another planet/moon?its like a made up world
The thing they collect, is it air? oxygen? plants? fuel/energy? breathing apparatus? any kind of machine? none
The others who can not breathe, are they also human?yes
Maybe i should rephrase. There not human as such, but natives to the made up world, but the fact that they're not humans is irelavant

The last post before...The thing that they collect comes from a made up rare plant and will produce the thing they collect every 2 yrs. That gives you alot of information, if your the right type of person :P

P.S What I mean by made up is that it's not real, like a game. This also should help you.

I'm guessing everyone is bored of this puzzle. Its either that or everyone is confused by my puzzle. Should I just put down a spoiler now?

It's only been one day. Give them time.

Couple of things, howe'er:
- If you feel that your solvers are getting bored/confused, you can post a recap (where you post all the relevant information that has been discovered thus far) and/or a hint (self-explanatory, just don't go too far).
- Don't use the word that starts with s and rhymes with boiler unless the solution has been posted. The way puzzles are filed under 'solved' is through a fairly brief process that involves searching for the s-word and automagically sending it to the recently solved folder. The traditional way around it is to say '$poiler', but you can be creative.

No!!! No sp0i1ers! We're just thinking.
A hint would be apreciated though.
Is it from a book? Movie? Videogame? TV?can't say
Does that mean that you don't know? Won't tell us? It comes from more than one? Something else?

Does that mean that you don't know? Won't tell us?this one, but i will say. It's a game. It comes from more than one? Something else?

I will give you a hint though. It could very well be under your nose, for most people. The thing that it's from is well known. From it there are 4 types of chracters you can choose from.

I respect your wanting to not tell us, but could you tell us if it is multiplatform, as that is unlikely to gave away very much?

Well, answering the Questions, at least with yes or no, is actually the target of this site. How should we solve the puzzle, if you don't answer questions, which might give us a hint?

**********SP01LER***********
It took alto longer than I expected... Anyway the game is FFCC. A game with good graphics and is slightly repetitive. In this game you travel with a group of people, or natives to this made up world, gathering drops of mrryhh from trees that only produce them every two years to protect villages from miasma. With covers the world. In the group you have a chalice, with creates a small miasma free zone. It repels miasma. To protect the villages and city there are huge crystals, which repel miasma. And groups from these towns go and collect 3 drops of mrryhh to replenish its power. And the aim of the game is to free the world from miasma, thus saving the world...Well done to Kitral Solane who solved this puzzle. I will be back with more...MUAHAHAHHAHAHAHHA
