Picture the scene; the Square - a bizarre, flat square-shaped planet sitting in an alternate dimension to ours and home to the Polytopians, the indigenous people comprised of 15 individual tribes whose only shared attribute is their love of fighting. Players will become the leader of one of these tribes as they attempt to build civilizations and forge reputations in competition with the other tribes.
Will they take on the role of the Imperius, highly regimented, bureaucratic artisans known for their winemaking prowess? Perhaps the Oumaji, a desert dwelling nomadic tribe with a reputation for lightning fast raids on their enemies as well as top-notch animal husbandry skills? Or maybe the business driven, materially wealthy Luxidoor whose tea ceremonies are legendary!
