    In DRIFTLAND The Magic Revival player as a powerful mage has to reunion the shattered planet.
    The game is a mix of a real time strategy, sim, and 4X.
    Player does not control individual units - only sets objectives to be achieved. He's in charge of the whole kingdom and takes care about its expansion.
    Player can directly affect the individual and the environment in the game with his own arsenal of spells.

    We're focusing on the following Game Pillars:
    • Setting goals instead of micromanagement
      - Manage the empire as a powerful mage. Develop a great empire and set objectives for its army.
    • Original game environment
      - Shattered planet is kept from collapse and drifting away in space by powerful, ancient magic.
    • Acquisition of new territories
      - Take on the role of a powerful mage who is able to move and reunion parts of the planet.
    • High accessibility and replayability
      - Easy to learn, hard to master. Transparent and consistent rules of the game, scalable complexity and difficulty maps / scenarios.

              Really, really nice transition from the map view into the world! I'm intrigued, are you flicking between a 2D image and 3D assets? Or is it the same mesh the whole time and you switch between two different materials?

                Hi Jess, the map is the combination of the postprocess material and background mesh displayed with "paper" material. The representation of resources, buildings and units are UI elements (widgets).

                      Although I'm not a big fan of 4X games because of the time they require to put in them, I really like how your game looks and I'd give it a try. I like the islands concept and the map with how you've implemented the zoom. Nice job and good luck ahead!

                        Beautiful UI work. Loving that map transition. I really enjoy this style of gameplay can can't wait to give it a spin.

                        How's development going these days?

                          Thanks!
                          We are moving forward. Rushing is the enemy of creating good strategy games ;-)
