The game is produced by the small Bulgarian[3] indie game studio Ivent Games for PlayStation 3, with updated versions released for Microsoft Windows, Linux, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The story focuses around Strahil, the former leader of the "Upper Kingdom" and the victim of a cruel plot that led to his imprisonment in a dark cave.

Throughout his way Strahil will have to deal with brutal enemies who would prefer to die rather than surrender.
