About This Game

"We were thousands to flee the Empire, running away from famine, war and poverty. We set course towards uncharted territories, our promised land, leaving behind a dying one. After many months of traveling, we settled down and began the construction of a new kingdom. However, we soon discovered that we were not alone in this New World..."
