Compete to best rebuild your ancestral village and guide your people on their journey home. The creatures of the meteorite have lost much of their strength but many remain. Fight them off to protect traveling villagers.

Each of the four characters have asymmetrical abilities for engaging competitive strategy.

Rebuild the village so that returning villagers have a place to live. Carefully choose what and where to build to maintain an advantage, earning the biggest rewards for long-term planning.

Interact with other players by hiring their specialists to perform special actions. Combat dangerous creatures to rescue villagers. Explore a fantasy landscape filled with bizarre places, technology, and people. Journey to the Monument and help rebuild your ancient home!

Includes two modes of play: Standard and Story. When playing in story mode, read from a storybook as you explore, making choices and learning about the characters and world. Each character has their own story, plot and motivations — unique to the locations they explore.
