Dragon Force, A SEGA Saturn exclusive, is a “suitable for everyone from kids to adults” strategy game that was released in the mid nineties. It was developed by SEGA and published by Working Designs. It features a lazy isometric view and a top-down, bird’s eye perspective. Dragon Force’s anime or manga graphics, coupled with the fun medieval or fantasy theme, made it reflective of the time period.
Dragon Force takes place in the land of Legendra, which was once ruled by gentle goddesses. When the last goddess was challenged by a dark force, she created a powerful dragon who sealed the dark god away. The dark god Madruk is forgotten as time presses forward and the land is divided into eight kingdoms. When rumors arise that one of the eight leaders is planning ill adventures against the other seven lands, it overshadows the fact that the long-forgotten evil is not dead.
Dragon Force plays in real time instead of being turn based. The player can select one of six playable monarchs and must manage his lands, from finances to warfare. You are the overlord, and it is your job to defend your realm and keep it safe from ALL evils, both human and god.
