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

Update Notes 0.8.27


Driftland: The Magic Revival

Together with version 0.8.27, we introduce the first, Human Campaign. We invite you to participate in the struggle of the four races with the challenge of rebuilding Driftland - their home planet.

Get to know the story of two brothers who have a unique opportunity to unite the conflicted empires and rebuild the shattered planet! Is a brotherly bond strong enough to cope with such a challenge and resist destructive forces?

Driftland: The Magic Revival

Human Campaign:

  • extended tutorial during campaign missions
  • 6 unique maps
  • custom-shaped islands
  • new unique mage-rulers
  • campaign-specific units and buildings

General Improvements:

  • new destruction and falling off bridges
  • Tellurions and Mausoleums have gained a magical range for their owners
  • reworked enemy units/buildings window
  • injured units fleeing (running) from the battlefield to be cured
  • designation of resources with additional colors: purple for unexplored geology and gray for lack of resources (red, yellow and green invariably indicate the amount of resource)
  • further AI improvements
  • improving the balance, e.g. Ritual of Avulsions (Dark Elves) rips out only one resource at a time
  • additional UI and in-game sound effects
  • additional visual FXs
  • additional units animations
  • optimizations, including LOD for subsequent groups of buildings
  • bugs fixes

The advantage and disadvantage of Early Access are the countless ideas that appear in the minds of players. It would be impossible to fulfill all of them...


What an amazing piece of work!
