A world in chaos

Generations ago, the realm of Alefgard was plunged into darkness when the hero fated to slay the terrible and treacherous Dragonlord, the ruler of all monsters, instead fell into his trap!

Through the King of Darkness' evil powers, mankind was scattered to the winds and robbed of the power to build. With even the idea of creativity relegated to mere legend, the people of Alefgard wander the ruins of their former home, scrounging and scavenging in the dust to survive.

The goddess has spoken

You have been chosen by the goddess Rubiss. Rise as a legendary Builder in a tale of epic proportions, and explore a vast sandbox world to gather materials, craft items and build everything imaginable.

Build a legacy

Master the art of construction, shape your own towns however you want, defend them from monsters, and rescue townsfolk in need. Succeed and you may just rebuild Alefgard, the very same world where the Dragon Quest series began.

Only when the wonder of imagination has been returned will mankind be able to overthrow the evil Dragonlord once and for all.
