“For millennia, the prime factions of the land have been standing together in defense of their world and their planet. Unspeakable horrors, known as the Aragych have been waging unnumbered wars against the united defenders -- After a year long conflict, the aggressors finally have been pushed back once and for all, and now the inhabitants of the world have been granted an era of peace..

 

It’s been over a hundred years, the wound inflicted upon the lands are finally healed; peace and order is restored as a new generation takes it’s freedom for granted. Unaware of the darkness buried in the past, they are now living the dream that their forefathers fought and bled for..”

 

Unfortunately, this peace won’t last long..

 

In an insidious plot to destroy harmony and inflict chaos, a treacherous group simply named "The Federation" deceived the other factions to team up against one. A massive civil war is waged and before long the factions are nearly brought to the brink of extinction.

 

All seems lost until a band of heroes emerge (The Iron Union), who seek to prevent this war, embark on a mission to locate 10 missing but extremely powerful champions (war veterans) who they believe could be the answer to all of this.

 

Following endless death and destruction, it is your goal to reveal the truth behind the Federation’s deception and locate these 10 lost heroes. Can you do it before it’s too late?

Since 2015, I have been putting my heart and soul into this project; working tirelessly and investing large sums of money to commission game art assets. Countless hours of production and many sleepless nights has brought me to where I am now.
