Driftland: The Magical Revival Story
Driftland: The Magical Revival is coming up with a story of fantasy and strategy, excellently refined with great sound and some really nice graphics. The legend says that after a long and destructive war between several factions of ancient mages, their unwise actions have almost completely destroyed their Driftland city. Trying to repair their mistake and realizing that their civilizations and life on Driftland were compromised and in immersed in danger, those ancient mages have called a truce and tried, this way, to repair their damage, hoping it won’t be too late. So they used all their remaining magic in order to cast the most powerful spell they could – and that spell is the only one that has been holding, even till the current moment of the story, the shattered planet of the Driftland world in a relative balance.
Furthermore, the story in Driftland: The Magical Revival is about managing to finally save Driftland with the power of hope, ambition and with the help of several other characters. After ages of dark, in a time when everything seemed to be lost for Driftland, a few new rays of hope entered the factions’ souls when new sources of magic started to appear while new mages started to be born across the planet. Unfortunately, at the same time, dormant conflicts have started to get back to life, and their management by the player will decide the future of Driftland – either being restored to the initial glory it was previously immersed in, or being wiped away completely from the Universe once and forever.
