Server Upgrade Complete

We have now fully moved to our new hosting. Our mail server is still undergoing the process of increasing its reputation with the major email providers, so we are expecting a few more days of reduced email availability. Your orders will still be processed and will appear in your orders section in your account.

Thank you all for your sincerely appreciated patience over the last few months with the increasingly obtrusive server issues and the hosting move.

"What is this all about"

- David Livingstone 


Well David, 


This is a game of adventure and exploration where you, together with five other players, venture into deepest Africa. The time period is mid-19th century and you start your expedition at one of the six Ports of Entry. 

Your journey is financed by a major newspaper and publisher back home, and they expect you to bring home fantastic stories that they can publish. Your expedition consists of you and armed askaris, which are local African soldiers, and porters that carry food and gifts. There will be occasional local guides and goats to keep you company.

The quest is to trek into what is unknown to you. You will interact with people that you meet, while searching for the myths and legends that are said to exist somewhere in Africa. To walk the land among people that might not appreciate your presence, to face hunger and predators, and to reveal what perhaps should remain hidden is dangerous. Not only are the lives of your expedition at stake, but your sanity as well.  


But then again, as the old trader said, "are you not entering the Heart of Darkness?"
