The islands are alive with magic and enchantment telling the tales of their origin and revealing the role Kara unknowingly plays in it as each artefact that she unearths unlocks a new clue to her past.
Witness Kara’s evolution in survival as she scavenges for resources and gains the skills to craft, and equip her with the ultimate sea vessel and the strongest combat-ready attire and weaponry. Increasingly ferocious battles on land and at sea will transform her into the hardened warrior she was born to become.
All the while, a storm unlike any she has ever seen is pulling her through the treacherous waters to face a mystical presence that lies beneath the sea.
To Kara’s tribe, the exploits of her ancestors are legendary. Hunters, fishers, warriors, poets and philosophers, their stories tell of a people who lived in perfect harmony with the natural world and swam the deep waters in the company of gods. Though the tale of their downfall has been lost to time, their legacy lives on in these artefacts that have endured to this day.
