You are the son of a Nor and you will be tasked of putting 10 melons to 3 other melons into a big basket for a very lazy dude. Unfortunately, the idyllic valley is haunted and so all the melons are catapulted out of the valley by a mysterious force! When you investigate these puzzling events, you will find out that invisible giant sand moles seem to kill all the NPCs in your village or at least drive them to flee into savety onto the rooftops of their houses.
Sad and lonely you will find some comfort in collectiong lifelike looking statutes, which you can pile up in front of a giant guy who chills out and spends some much needed shadow,
Unable to find any booze around, you will eventually venture out to find the escaped melons.
Make sure to chat up the friendly bald girls who are alway happy and grinning, they are real good company!
You'll have a blast with all the things you can do, when you always do the exact opposite of what your quest givers tell you to :)
But from what I have played by the rules so far, I can say it is a mighty fine and very atmospheric game with a very unique game world and of course, the star of the show: these extremely innovative gameplay mechanics!
Besides all that, you will experience wonderful oldschool moments, fans of games like Gothic will be pleased by that!
If you are still not certain if you should get the game, just take another look on th eprice tag!
These guys have worked their asses off for years now and as a KS backer I can only say that their communication with the community has been a shining example for how it's done!
I'm looking forward to when I can finally manage to allocate a little more time than now to dive into the game and hopefully find out more about this secret easter egg / game mode that lets you play as sandworn and prey on both friend and foe!!
