Pinnacle- The Five Kingdoms is a lore-rich tactical game.
Set in the Lands of the Pinnacle, a continent where five great heroes once sought and obtained the power to mold the world to their desires and became the rulers of their own kingdoms, the player will step into the shoes of the Tactician, the ambitious commander of a small troop, who begins a new life in the no-man's land in the north.

The player will get to meet and recruit several heroes, use their unique traits and abilities to engage enemy forces in turn-based tactical battles, and chat with them inbetween missions to get to know them and their opinion on the world events.

To unlock new story chapters and locations, you will also have to use equipment looted from enemies and materials bought from shops to train and arm an army of your own, clearing the way to more missions and treasures.

The demo currently contains about 2-3 hours of gameplay. Being an early version, some bugs and glitches may arise.
