Here the Children of the Nile design team will try to give you a glimpse into the creation of our project.
Unlike so many other games, understanding more about how this game operates will not undermine your enjoyment of it, but rather,
we strongly believe, will deepen your experience. Perhaps it will make those of you who are considering a career in game design
learn a little bit about how the process really works... or maybe choose a different career.
