A small nation called Jutland has been economically blockaded by the big country, and have decided to attack the empire’s military base for “freedom and independence from colonial rule.”

The magazine also details some of the game’s looks with the “Gouache” drawing system, which will depict the game with elaborate and bright looks, giving it a painting-like presentation.
