As the years go by, our world grows more and more despicable. Politicians lead us unashamedly to our doom, creating laws to serve themselves and leaving the uneducated masses to fend for themselves, unaided and unwanted. The population lives like sheep, waking up in their little boxes every morning to go to work, to produce for a faceless corporation who care not for death, but for profit. We are nameless faces in a crowd of the unremarkable. A crowd that’s shuffling steadily toward the edge of the cliff. Tired of this world, a mysterious invitation arrives and the hero is teleported to a whole new world, one that is maybe not as different as it thinks.
Known as Nictheroy, this world is home to curious cultures and civilizations, many of which mirror those found throughout the history of our planet, Earth. In the vast desert regions dwell the sand settlers, constructors of great pyramids, sphinxes, and amazing buildings, who worship their leaders - the pharaohs - as part of their polytheistic beliefs. In the mountains live the sun worshippers in their stone temples. On the central steppes live the great warrior tribe, with amazing riders, formidable in the arts of war, and reminiscent of the Mongolians. Their neighbours are similar to that of the ancient Chinese, known as being the greatest farmers and inventors on the whole of Nictheroy. In the forest you contact the native people of the land and know their unique lifestyle.
In Nictheroy, the player must gather resources to craft items and build the castle village that is its home base. Exploring many environments and locations, the player can recruit NPCs to help in the journey and expand the base. With the resources found, the player can make weapons and armours to defeat bosses. There are campfires around the world where the player can rest and save while preparing for new exploration.
Those brave enough to take part can fish, grow crops, chop trees, mine resources, ride animals, shoot using a bow, handle a sword, and find even more ways to interact with the plentiful nature of the universe. As an open-world game, the player makes their own goals and explores Nictheroy at their own pace, delving into unique environments and compelling storylines.
