The Skyward Kingdom has been under the threat of an evil mage called Dreadmyre. Queen Sophia has defeated him and freed her people from the curse. However, a part of Dreadmyre survives and and he has now fled to the borders. Queen Sophia has chased after him to put an end to his reign of evil. Unfortunately, the war has left everything in ruins and dark forces still linger around the kingdom. The Queen has now chosen you to lead the kingdom in her stead. You, as the kingdom’s Steward, must protect the citizens of Skyward Kingdom, gain their trust and put them back on their feet. Build the town and restore the castle. Meet the citizens and get to know them. Help them rebuild their shops and aid them in their quests. Explore the fantasy world of Awakening through minigames and hidden object scenes. Find magical relics that can help restore the town’s nature. It is now up to you to bring back the Skyward Kingdom to its former glory!
