Pillage the Village features ragdoll physics, gesture recognition, and visceral, satisfying gameplay differentiating it from anything else out there. The story in Pillage The Village picks up before the events of the classic Defend Your Castle, and offers some explanation as to why the attacking horde attempts to destroy you with such vehemence and zealotry. Your actions have consequences. Take a moral stand and fight for the pacifist way or indulge in your deep desires and walk the path of the antagonist. Either path includes a plethora of useful spells, upgrades and abilities.
