STORY:
Shipwrecked, a Sailor finds his way to an island inhabited by outlaws called 'Roguelings' and friendly 'Kindlings'. 

He wakes up from near unconscious state and finds a handgun that helps him clear the obstacles and neutralize the first onslaught of Roguelings. He soon realizes he is in a hostile environment, the sole human being, who will have to fight his way to survival. 

The Sailor learns that Kindlings are friendly creatures and will help him build a fort and set up defenses. He strategically amasses construction resources and directs the Kindlings for assistance. In the process, he fends off occasional attacks from Roguelings and their Commanders. 

The Sailor earns credits (in the form of Amber) and experience (in the form of XP) by completing missions, which he can use to buy resources and other capabilities.

He eventually builds an army with Kindlings which eliminates the Roguelings and their King. 

As the Sailor and the Kindlings are rejoicing their victory, his SOS beacon is observed by a passing ship. He handovers the island to the Kindlings and bids adieu as he sails back to the human world.
