The story about the Tower of Babel goes way back to ancient ages: Once upon a time all of humanity was united in tolerance and peace. Mankind spoke one common tongue. Together, there was nothing that humans could not achieve. But as mankind's power grew, so did their arrogance. At the height of their power they wanted to challenge even the gods and so they started to build the famous Tower of Babel. The tower grew and grew until it reached up into the high heavens.
To punish humanity for their arrogance a terrible curse was cast upon mankind: Their common tongue was sealed away in the Tower of Babel! The humans broke apart into hundreds of small groups, each speaking their own language and fighting each other. Their once great civilization fell into ruins and the Tower of Babel was forgotten, hundreds of years have passed. Are the ancient language and the Tower of Babel only a myth? Is the fabled language still sealed away, inside the tower? What would happen, if mankind's common language could be recovered?
A young hero sets out on an adventure to find out the truth...
