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

Many dark times passed, but when all seemed utterly lost a fresh ray of hope emerged: new sources of magic appeared, and new mages were born across the planet. Now, as the dormant conflicts once again surface, these new powers will determine whether Driftland is restored to its former glory, or is wiped from the cosmos entirely.

“Working on a game we always wanted to play is a dream coming true”, says Micha? Sokolski, Star Drifters CEO. “As developers and avid gamers, we realize how high we’ve raised the bar for ourselves, and how high the expectations of fans of RTS games are. Driftland: The Magic Revival is a combination of fresh ideas and unique mechanics, but our community’s feedback always comes first for us. We believe that we’ll reach the highest level of quality with the help of 4X and RTS genre enthusiasts. For an indie studio like ours, the community’s feedback is the most valuable. Join us and help make this truly unique strategy game!”

DRIFTLAND: THE MAGICAL REVIVAL – MAIN FEATURES:

  • Explore, fight, and set goals! Instead of micromanagement, issue direct commands to your faithful army.
  • 4X, RTS, and god game combined. A special approach, introducing many features.
  • Dynamic topography. The shattered planet is kept from collapsing and drifting away into the depths of space by powerful, ancient magic.
  • High accessibility and replayability value. Adjust the complexity and difficulty of the maps and scenarios as you like.
  • Rule Driftland – build an empire! Expand your kingdom, gather resources, become a mighty mage and merge the scattered fragments of your planet with powerful sorcery.
  • Single player mode (available from the beginning of Early Access), campaigns and multiplayer mode (to be added during Early Access). Whether alone or with other players, Driftland: The Magic Revival is an incredible experience.
  • Taming wild creatures. Create completely different battle units by combining Heroes with flying creatures.
  • Everything takes place on the same map. Manage your empire and fight for expansion in the same tactical view, where you are able to dynamically adjust distance.
