Aeon of Sands

About the game

Aeon of Sands – The Trail is a retro low fantasy RPG set in a post-apocalyptic world, with first person, grid-based exploration, puzzles, real-time combat, and a fully illustrated, non-linear choose your story adventure.
The game follows the misadventures of a likeable slacker, who is suddenly thrown out of his cozy home into a terrible, infinite desert that seems to hate him.


Accompany the vain, nap-loving clerk Setrani through his first major adventure.

Guide him on his travels through a dangerous land, ravaged by the weather and by tribal conflicts.
Struggle with him as the desert, wickedly, sets trap after trap on his path.


The story is driven by multiple-choice dialogues, in which you are repeatedly confronted with new absurd situations. Based on your decisions, new areas can be explored while others become inaccessible, you meet new companions or make enemies of them.


It’s basically Choose-Your-Own-Adventure featuring Dungeon Crawling!
