Description from the packaging.

Real time strategy reaches new heights.

Welcome to the Islands at War.

A merciless storm rages in the world of Nimbus, a celestial universe or warring island tribes ruled by the Furies: Rain, Wind and Thunder. One island is yours to command. One fury is yours to honor. Bridge the heavens to enemy islands and annihilate the opposition. Capture and sacrifice their High Priests to gain Knowledge from your patron Fury. Harness the power of the elements... and rule the skies. It's really different out here.
