Above and Below

You've found a new home, but deep beneath your land lie caverns of untold treasure and adventure.

You barely escaped.

Your last village was ransacked by barbarians.

You wandered the desert, braved frozen peaks, and even paddled a log across the sea, kicking at sharks whenever they got too close, the baby strapped tightly to your back. Then you found it! Your new home. But as soon as you had the first hut built, you discovered a vast network of caverns underground, brimming with shiny treasures, rare resources, and untold adventure.

How could you limit your new village to the surface?

Overview:

Above and Below is the first game in the Arzium Storybook Series, which includes: Near and Far and Now or Never.

A mashup of town-building and storytelling, you’ll compete to build the best village above and below ground. Send villagers to perform jobs like exploring the cave, harvesting resources, and constructing houses. Will you send Hanna along on the expedition to the cave? Or should she instead spend her time teaching important skills to one of the young villagers?

Go below the surface into the great cavern for epic stories and adventures. One of your friends reads what happens. You’ll be given a choice and a lot will depend on which villagers you brought on the expedition, and who you’re willing to sacrifice to succeed.

The storybook is packed with encounters of amazing adventure, randomly chosen each time you visit the cavern.

Will you have the best village?
