About This Game



The Qaedon Wars saga will tell the story of the people of Qaedon's fight to restore their world after the Great Cataclysm. This first episode The Story Begins will see your Hero start at Level 1 and begin the journey towards redemption for his/her world.

Loosely based on Dungeons and Dragons Open Game License (OGL 2e) of Wizards of the Coast, the game provides a deep strategy and roleplaying experience as you build and progress your fantasy army through the single player campaign. The Story Begins delivers old-school gaming with retro hand-drawn 2D graphics throughout.

We have designed the game engine to be able to scale into future chapters of the saga where your hero and their troops can be imported into the next game. Expect to see your units at Level 20 by the end of the saga!

However each game will have its own discreet storyline and goals so that players can achieve victory in that particular chapter without playing any of the others.




  • 50+ hours of game play in Story Mode which allows you to choose which objectives you wish to tackle in a particular Campaign.
  • Choose your hero and protect them throughout. If your hero dies it's game over!
  • Multiple battle scenarios, all with random objectives and enemies to increase replayability.
  • Varying mission types including Attack, Defend, Rescue, Capture, Escort.

  • Hundreds of spells for your Clerics and Mages to blast the enemy or help your troops.
  • Fill your coffers with Qaedi (the global currency) by looting your enemies and achieving mission objectives to finance your army operations.
