The mystical world of Ez’rat Qin – once a mighty civilisation, now a crumbled ruin. You awake after hundreds of years of sleep, in an abandoned land and no memory of your past. Immerse yourself in this world of dark beauty, thrilling mystery and ancient puzzles, as you embark on a quest to find out what happened in this world, and to discover who you are.
