Cradle is an open-world adventure game set in the world of Anora, a land at the whims of five gods, who each represent a different human trait. During a time of peace, the god of creation and free will, Aderyn, once began to gain new followers from the other four gods. Jealous of their lost followers, the other four gods banded together, casting the land of the Aderian people, Aderyn's Cradle, into another plane of existence, which threw Anora out of balance. The player is thrust into this lost realm. The gods have cursed and distorted Aderyn's Cradle. Lava erupts in the icy mountains, invasive fungal growth eats away at the Bayou's great metropolis, the overgrown quarries are flooded, and extreme drought ravages the cities in the desert. You venture through the land in hopes of waking Aderyn from his forced slumber, restoring Aderyn's Cradle, and thus bringing balance back to the world of Anora.
Hey Cradle Fans!
This Aderynian Shrine marks the beginning of your Adventure in Cradle.
The unrelenting wind tears through the forest, startling you awake. Although dazed, you follow the totems deeper into the ancient wood, moving swiftly away from the even worsening wind... a clear sign of the impending doom that is Ostia's Wrath. The path following the totems is winding, but ever leads to your destination, an ancient shrine to a lost god and a gateway to another world.
