AFK Arena is the highly successful fantasy role-playing game for mobile devices, developed by Chinese development studio Lilith Games. The game is popular with players for its mix of idle RPG and turn-based RPG mechanics and gorgeous, illustrative art. The game takes place in the world of Esperia, a medieval fantasy world of war and chaos. This world is rich in diverse cultures and has a vast array of intelligent creatures. These peoples all belong to different factions and unions, and conflicts of beliefs and ideologies are constantly played out between them. The tethers of life and death, the star-crossed destinies of gods and mortals, and struggles against demonic forces, set the scene for this world's vibrant tales. AFK Arena sets itself apart from other narrative-rich games by placing the characters' view of events front and center, telling stories of the world from unique perspectives, and fleshing out the world and the many valorous heroes intricately and with real depth.
