From the campaign:
Dawn: Rise of the Occulites is the first game in the Rise of the Occulites Saga. The Saga covers the evolution of the Occulites from small tribes fighting for survival to great civilizations with massive armies spreading out across and ruling the world.
Dawn takes place at the very beginning of the Occulite’s evolution. At this time, the Occulites roam the lands in small tribes, moving from cave to cave, collecting the precious Sungems to keep them warm during the Long Dark. They fight over territory and resources in the struggle for survival.
I wish you as much pleasure playing this game as we had creating it. Welcome to Dawn.
