Game description: Makai Kingdom is a tactical role-playing game in which you play as Lord Zetta, who is hell-bent on recovering control of the netherworld. In an effort to build your army, you must imbue inanimate objects and equip them with weapons from a variety of eras, ranging from medieval to futuristic. The game combines traditional turn-based, team combat with tanks and mobile buildings that provide additional abilities to units and require special strategic consideration. Makai Kingdom's randomly generated battlefields help to give you a different experience every time you play.
The story's protagonist is a self-proclaimed "Bad-ass Freakin' Overlord" named Lord Zetta, who attempts to prevent the destruction of his netherworld prophesized by Pram the Oracle. After discovering the Sacred Tome, Zetta finds a passage claiming that his own stupidity would be the downfall of his Netherworld. Infuriated, he burns the book, only to remember immediately afterwards that destroying the book would destroy his world. He quickly responds by confining his soul to the Sacred Tome and ventures to rewrite his world into existence by having the other Overlords of Netherworlds write wishes within his pages.
