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.
** Will be added during Early Access development
Driftland will never be the same. The warmup is over and the new AI will not be as forgiving as it used to be. To tell you the truth, your enemies will go out of their way to win with you, so pay extra attention to relations with your neighbours and get ready for the real war. When it will come, it will put your skills to the ultimate test.

AI Major Improvements:
Other ruling mages will now develop economy of their Empires much more efficiently and react to diplomatic states more adequately. If it’ll come to war, beware, for your opponents are ready for a fully fledged war and will take no prisoners!
There's no place for stressles gameplay. Not anymore. Unless you want it - the peaceful mode is still there!
Reworked Event Notifications:
We implemented a big list of improvements that will make the notifications you see on the right side of the screen much more convenient. We say no to spamming, while at the same time introducing a new way of sorting them and fixing bugs. Try it yourself!
There’s only one more question I have for you now: who’s also excited about the upcoming first Campaign? Here’s the first sneek peek of the great adventure soon to come!

You have probably come actoss languages created for books or games. Does it make sense and if it can pay off at all, in the case of an independent game?
