#Driftland

Become a powerful mage and rule Driftland. Develop a great empire and set objectives for its army.

Reunion shattered planet with might and magic

After a devastating war between the mightiest ancient mages, Driftland has become shattered planet  and only held together by a powerful magic. In the face of the destruction of an entire civilization and life on the planet, warring parties decided to call a truce and try to repair the damage. It was too late. They had to use all remaining magic resources to cast a powerful spell that only keeps the world in balance. After many dark ages, there shined a spark of hope. New sources of magic appeared, and the whole planet began to give birth to new mages. Along with the magic, the old conflict also resurfaced…

The player becomes a mage overlord with his own castle, tower, and a small realm on one of the islands. His task is to explore the procedurally generated world and expand his kingdom by adjoining more and more islands together. Gameplay focus on giving out major orders and setting goals, instead of micromanagement of each unit. Classical representatives of fantasy genre, such as warriors, archers and mages, are able to tame and ride different types of flying beasts, creating various aerial units.
