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.
Build a city you want to rule - Kingdom building and upgrades of buildings, expanding their capabilities - economic, military or magical power
Dynamic topography - Move and terraform floating islands of the shattered planet
Get to know the rich lore - 4 different races with unique skills, each one speaking their own language. 4 points of view on the Driftland’s story. One player to bring them all and in the darkness bind… oh, you know the drill.
Many paths of progress - Economy, Warfare, and Magic upgrades purchased for progress points
Economy is a key - Resources, population, and magic-based economy
Don’t forget the Diplomacy - Reputation system, alliances, wars and everything in between
Face various Victory Conditions - Extermination, Domination, Expansion
Give your citizens the Orders - Setting goals instead of micro-management units
Development of units - Units have names, gain EXP, levels, and unique skills
Flying units - Enhancing units by taming and bonding them with flying beasts incl. dragons or build Dwarven aerial machines
Game Modes - Skirmish, Intertwining Campaigns, and Multiplayer
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, trusting your guidance. You are their last hope - only a few have the power to break the chains that hold the mystery behind Driftland and to unite the planet!
Update Notes 1.1.17
There was no better time to claim your legacy - Driftland has just received 🐉 BIG DRAGON UPDATE that makes the story complete, poses new challenges to single player mode, and introduces new online game modes.
Final Story Campaign
This is it. After 3 story campaigns, here is the 4th and final one coming. You have met Emeric, a young reckless mage who dared to oppose Dark Elves. You saw Dark Elves’ leader Shalh’yra trying to make peace with Humans. You witnessed Dwarves looking for a magic artifact that will keep their race alive and you saw them struggling to accept a female as their leader. Now you will meet Wild Elves’ Lanahel, that protects his realm from the other races, who will suddenly discover the truth behind all conflict in Driftland.
This is the story about tolerance and prejudice, friendship and loyalty, blind faith and open mind. Now this story is coming to an end...
The first three campaigns can be played in any order. The exception is the last one, which requires winning the previous three. Each of them unlocks one padlock on the chains blocking the final campaign.
New Multiplayer Modes
1) Co-op Mode
Play together with a friend and fight the enemy. Brace yourselves, because they are coming for you!
2) Team Multiplayer Mode
2vs2 or 3vs3 - there are two ways to prove who has the better alliance out there. Grab your team, taunt the other, get your economy right and 4X them!
