After centuries of conflict and misery all living beings were exterminated, the tower has grown dramatically, it is a living thing that grows and changes.

The tower offers the chance to the last living being, a tree, to sacrifice itself and giving life to a knight. This is the reincarnation of the souls of all living beings killed by the tower, it is an empty shell inhabited by souls in search of revenge.

A strong bond was formed with Elisa and himself. “Elisa is an outstanding and passionate developer. Absolutely nothing in her is ordinary!” Thanks to Elisa, Yves was motivated to do more, so together with two friends, he founded a digital comics publisher for IOS called ManFont, the first one in Italy. After more than 30 apps, Giulio finally moved to Turin and, with Elisa, the three lived under the same roof. Broken Arms Games was born.
