This game is a fast-paced epic fantasy about a rag-tag group of heroes trying to escape from a plague colony.

The backstory includes references (though not graphic depictions) of such serious topics as warfare and plague.

The story itself ranges from light-hearted, to bleak, to exciting, and includes themes of perseverence, terror, sacrifice, and redemption, sprinkled with humour and witty banter throughout.

If you let your kids watch The Lord of the Rings or pretty much anything on prime time television, then this game should have tamer content by most standards.
