One day, during the zenit of the five suns a voice was heard from above “We will give you a body that fits your wicked mind”; that same day the majority of animal and plant species mutated and twisted, their bodies changing to new forms. These new creatures were armed with magic never seen before and they quickly took over the world, crushing anything that opposed them and hunting what didn’t.
The events that happened that day are now refered to as the “Cataclysm”; now the world is ruled by the wicked, and the sapient species that weren’t destroyed by the Cataclysm created flying cities to survive.
But not every creature that was converted survived the Cataclysm, the unfit and unluckiest died until they were capable of surviving, but soon after the Cataclysm the wicked learned how to modify their bodies to their own will. In less than 50 years the world below the cities became an hyper-competitive biosphere, where everything competes to gain enough power to be accepted by the five suns as an infernal lord.
You so happen to be one of the unlucky people that was deemed “wicked” by the five suns and now have to survive in this unforgiving world, sorry!
You will play as a converted that lives in an abbandoned capitol 70 years after the Cataclysm.
To win the game you have to become powerfull enough to be recognized by the suns and become an infernal lord.
There isnt perma-death, each time you die your MP is reduced by 30% and you might gain a negative status effect.

The special characteristics that the character gained after the Cataclysm
Skills give you boosts and special capabilities
You have mutation points (MP), MP is gained by eating other beings.
MP can be used to do the following:
Increase an attribute.
Make a new mutation (expensive).
Improve an existing mutation.
Gain/Improve a skill.
Evolutions change your character in a more fundamental way than normal mutations can, you can evolve by spending 30 MP if you unlocked an evolution; to unlock an evolution you just have to meet the requirements (which can be anything: actions taken, rounds survived, how many times you died, having a skill maxed, having certain mutations or having an attribute higher than a certain treshold).
In case you where wondering about what happened to the civ game I said would come out… It will still come out, it just will happen after this game finishes.
