You play a giant. Not just any giant, either. The giant will take on the form of the Avatar you created. With this giant, you supervise the building of a metropolis that starts as a simple village.

Oh, and if you get bored and need to get out some aggression, you can kick them around a little. Not that I would ever do such a thing. Ever…

  • Stylized animated graphics that change with the seasons and season-based gameplay
A dynamic-music soundtrack (which adapts to the season and the state of the village)
