Not pay to play!

There are quite a few other games that are like this and utilize this same idea but this is the FIRST game that I’ve seen that is Not pay to win OR pay to play. That needs to be commended heavily because almost every single game nowadays is pay to play. You have the option to use money (obviously there needs to be a way to support the devs) but it’s completely voluntary and you can play just fine without having to pay a cent.

My only issue with the game is how with a lot of the caves they lock everything behind tons of “stone” and it takes days to get through a whole cave just because of how much energy you’re forced to waste and then wait for it to come back. However if you are patient you can still make it even though it is a struggle having to wait sometimes

Also idk if I’ve progressed far enough in the game but I still haven’t received a single weapon above “common”… I would hope that there are special weapons in the game that you can unlock as you fight bosses and such but I guess we’ll see. Hopefully they don’t have special weapons locked behind a paywall or some mandatory payment

Otherwise this is an amazing game and the devs are doing an amazing job, keep it up!

Saved data


Recently I’ve noticed that when I accomplish a lot in one session and I got to reload the game later it reloads to a point that I already completed. One of the missions is to help a guy arm his soldiers with bows and arrows. I completed that, and then did a couple merchant deals for money and upgraded my town village. When I came back later I saw that the game loaded me into a saved spot that I had already progressed past. It would help if there was either an option to pause and “save” the game, or, if there was some sort of hit with a bed that you could build so you could “sleep” and save at whatever point you are at. It made me frustrated enough that I didn’t log back in for awhile after this happened and I think it would be a way to keep your gamers engaged and coming back if you incorporated some sort of save feature. Other than that, so far so good! Fun game!

Also, thank you for the recent updates adding more ways to earn stamina!

Developer Response ,

Hello! Thanks so much for your review.

Yes, these small rollbacks are a known issue, and is one of our topmost priorities to fix right now, together with the cloud save function.
Very sorry for the temporary inconvenience, we'll do our best to fix it ASAP.

Enjoy the game!

No Energy means you can’t play the game

Great game! Interesting concept and very fun. Unfortunately you get about an hour of play time before you have to either watch ads or pay money to keep playing. You use energy so quick in this game and when you have none you can’t play. So you get the option to watch a 30 second ad to replenish 20 energy. That 20 energy lasted me maybe 5 more minutes of play time being generous. After you watch 3 ads you don’t get that option anymore and then you either have to wait hours to fully replenish your energy or buy energy. A full energy bar gives you about 20 minutes of play time unless you level up in which case you get a full reset on your energy bar. Seems like a pay to play kind of game. If developers fix the energy problem and allow you to play the game as much as possible without making you watch ads or pay for energy it’d be a great game.

Developer Response ,

Hello! Sorry to hear you feel this way! There are many ways to restore energy which will unlock later on in the game: mini-game, the worker delegate system, various dishes with restorative effects also deserter human enemies drops walnuts which restore 3% energy and are basically free to get! We also looking for more ways to get energy early on so thank you for the feedback! For more information you can reach us on our Discord: or via mail:

Best regards
