Story
The story takes place in an epic and legendary world dominated by powerful divinities and ancient spells. Ancient people build flourishing cities and monuments prosper. This unique and adventurous world of Eselmir is inhabited by fairies and mysterious creatures.
Eselmir, a priest devoted to the Goddess of Time, belongs to the ancient Pirin race, demigods descendants of a fairy and a mortal that live on the highest mountains in the east.
One night, Eselmir receives a mission from his goddess that could change the fate of many: to find the five lost gifts of King Theoson, the progeny of Pirin's civilization, which at his death was buried together with his treasures in a secret place whose grave was never found again.

The Pirin Saga
The concept of the game was inspired and based on texts and drawings of a young talented Swiss writer, Sebastiano B. Brocchi who wrote a new elegant fantasy saga called "Pirin." The game is set in his own created universe. The hand made drawings are easily recognizable with a strong personality, are of the same style used to illustrate the book made by Brocchi itself.

Great stuff, aside from that song though. I wasn't crazy about that. Besides that however, you got my vote. See you in E3.
