Dear aspiring Viceroys!

It’s about time to take the first steps into the wondrous yet perilous world of Against the Storm in the updated Demo version of the game.

Venture into the Royal Woodlands — the game’s first of five biomes — and build settlements inhabited by resourceful beavers, lizards, and humans. Download the demo now from Epic Games Store:


Against the Storm – Royal Woodlands offers an unlimited number of playthroughs in the game’s first biome – the Royal Woodlands. The remaining biomes — as well as additional buildings, perks, upgrades, and systems — are available in the Early Access version (out now on Epic Games Store).

Manage the growing population of beavers, lizards, and humans, while tending to their needs and taking advantage of their specializations. Learn to tame the three rain seasons and explore nearby glades to expand your settlement and discover hidden treasures. But beware! The dangers await 

Define your goals for each game by carefully picking new orders from the mysterious Scorched Queen. Make choices as you play: which building blueprint do you want to receive as a reward? Which perk will help your city grow over the years? Which group of villagers will you let into your settlement? The prosperity of your villagers relies on decisions.

Complete two tutorial maps to unlock access to the World Map where you can earn and spend your meta-resources on 4 levels of Smoldering City Upgrades. Your meta progress will transfer from the demo to the full version.
