After a devastating war between ancient mages, a powerful spell is all that holds together the shattered planet of Driftland. Faced with the destruction of their entire civilization and life on the planet, the warring factions called a truce and tried to repair the damage – but it was already too late. By using all their remaining magic to cast a powerful spell, they managed to keep their world in relative balance.

Many dark ages passed, but when all seemed lost, a ray of hope emerged once more: new sources of magic appeared, and new mages were given birth to across the planet. Now, as the dormant conflicts once again surface, this rediscovered power will determine whether Driftland is restored to its former glory or wiped from the cosmos entirely.

You take on the role of a Mage Overlord with your own castle, tower, and a small realm on one of the landmasses. With your unique powers, you can explore a procedurally generated world and connect floating lands to expand your kingdom.

Gameplay focuses on setting general goals for all your units without the need to micromanage each of them. The warriors, archers, and mages under your command are able to tame and ride different kinds of flying beasts and create various aerial units.

  • Procedurally generated world
  • Resource- and magic-based economy
  • Move and terraform scattered landmasses with magic
  • Tame and ride dragons and other creatures
  • Explore and fight on the same map
  • Set goals instead of directly controlling units
  • Single player, campaign**, and multiplayer**

** Will be added during Early Access development

Powerful mage, only you can decide the fate of Driftland! Shattered pieces of the planet await your ultimate power and the helpless citizens of your Empire turn their eyes to you, hoping for your guidence. There was no better time to claim your legacy - Driftland has just received a huge pack of new languages and features that make the experience more complex, challenging and entertaining than ever!

The ability to move or terraform floating islands and connect them with bridges or arcane portals, battles between heroes endowed with free will, the ability to tame flying creatures or construction of powerful aerial machines - all of that now gain more depth with the introduction of diplomacy!

Creating a game with fantasy setting will sooner or later lead to an extremely important question. What characters will we be playing as? What fantasy...


What an amazing piece of work!
