The name Division Of Life goes back many years, The name has been used as a WIP name for a few projects of mine, whether Eclipse or not. But this is the only game that I have actually put my heart and soul into. We started out been a two man team consisting of me and my brother back when Elysium was the current 2d engine. We created a masterpiece for its time and with Elysium been one of few engines we had hundreds of active players but the engine it self could not cope and crashed several times a day which caused the players to disband and us to loose hope. This is a game that has been in the creation process for the past 4 years, I decided to change engines a few times until I finally settled on a fixed and cut down version of CSBig GrinE. Whilst my daughter was in hospital for the second time, I purchased a “work” laptop and sat stripping the engine to its core and rebuilding it. After the 2 weeks was up I had created something unique and I fell in love with creating games again. The second time in hospital gave me an opportunity to make notes about game play and have a really good think about what features are required and what would make the game stand out from the crowd.

The lands of Seryn were abundant with life, Farmers grew crops to feed families and hunters took enough food home to feed even the largest families. Life on Seryn was bliss, nothing ever went wrong, no natural disasters, and no crime was committed. The people of Seryn thanked the heavens for providing such a beautiful place to exist every last Sunday of the month; throwing parties and dancing until the morning after sunlight. One month a tribe called the Sanoâ€s had noticed its livestock was disappearing and as food stock hit critical levels the chief called the tribes council members to discuss what was going to happen.
They not only had next to no food stored for the winter and the last Sunday was about to come around but the tribe could not thank the heavens like everyone else. The tribeâ€s chief decided to call on a neighboring tribes help with the matter only to find out the same problem was spread through the lands. Without the Livestock, tribes could not harvest grain quick enough and made collecting and storing water a lot harder. With the grain going moldy and fresh water streams turning into icy roads the tribes banded together in the Temple of Heavens and asked the heavens what they could do. All of a sudden a small boy runs into the holy building in blood stained, torn clothes. He shouted at the top of his voice "Mowaâ€ and with that he ran he kept on running. The tribes all returned to their respective lands and tales began to spread like wild fire. The heavens did not respond to anything or anyone until the Temple of Heavens was ransacked in the night.
The heavens were furious and vowed to destroy whoever shall be at fault. Corruption, starvation and death swept across the land causing most tribes to be wiped out and those remaining to help each other and join forces. On the last Sunday on the month the remaining settlements did thank the gods and gave whatever they could to the heavens and as grain was poured in piles the Seren’s chief Taarp noticed something moving in the trees. He ordered his highest ranked soldiers to check it out. For it only to be the Mowa.
