You wake up in an unknown place, not sure if the land is friendly or hostile. You make a start by growing a settlement, attracting people with housing and farms. Soon you have workplaces, military facilities, and granaries.
As you progress you can build an army to eliminate threats. Gameplay evolves to enable you to select the right units to fight your enemies and expand your reach. At the same time, you must balance your resources, assign workers, and fine-tune your production chains. From there you can expand your settlements to acquire rare resources.
The result is a game that offers a simple yet deep story about the inhabitants of a foreign land. As you work with a tribe of mythical shamans, go through hardships and discover surprises there's more to this than meets the eye.
