Explore a transformed planet, negotiate or conquer new territories and bring the light of civilization to regressing human colonies in order to prepare mankind for war with a despotic entity.

In-Game Background Story

The peak of mankind’s space exploration age marked the creation of the All-Mind – an artificial intelligence-based on the structure of Earth’s lithosphere. Found to have unexplained powers, the A.I. came to a realization that it must supersede humanity and initiated a wave of destruction, displacing the orbits of planets and changing their climates in the process.

Millennia have passed and the world of mankind has staggered into a new Dark Age. You play as an emissary tasked with bringing the light of progress to the remainder of human settlements through diplomacy or by sheer force.

Those who survived have long forgotten their history. Living a life akin to slaves, they worship the All-Mind as higher power and do their best to fulfill its meaningless whims. Faced with cruelty, fanaticism, disbelief, and betrayal, you will have to make a choice – will mankind be satisfied with servitude or will you light the fires of revolution and unite humanity under your banner?

Enjoy an unprecedented level of freedom
Say ‘yes’ to meaningful replayability. Say ‘no’ to predictable and boring late game!
Revival generates a vast possibility space for you to play around with. From sudden weather changes to zombie infestations and bans on certain weapon types – boy, you are in for a surprise.

Adapt to new conditions with the help of the nuanced edict system that allows you to terraform the planet and fine-tune the game rules on specific regions of the map. Protect your settlement from changes by building special shield constructs or by accepting the blessings of your tribe’s totem tree.
