Paraworld has been released in 2006, there's no story before that.. if you google Paraworld, you can see images like this

Well done, DryFun! The Alpha was later in development as far as I know. Those early ingame screenshots (2003-2004) were what the game looked like for about two years and Paraworld got more colourful and polished, but also focusing more and more on RTS (like Warcraft 3 or Starcraft) elements during the later two years (2005-2006). It was said that the eSports elements were something the publisher Sunflowers wanted. Not that this is a bad thing. But the focus of the game went from a Settler/Age of Empire-style game to a tournament focused, balanced gaming experience . In the (german only) Playthrough-Guide book, of which you have the maps in your galleries, SEK OST had collected some background information and also some bits about future plans like a RPG sequel/spinoff.

I saw all these sites (except the forum). Is there a video http://vk.com/photo-90448337_375148469 Or is it just a screenshot?
