Totem Tribe Gold tells the story of the peaceful Hawk Tribe living on Tetala Island. According to legend the island was once marked by a glowing sparkle from the sky, the Tear of Heaven, capable of imparting wisdom and enlightenment to its owner. As the young female chieftain, Aruku, the player attempts to lead the tribe to prosperity as characters explore surrounding islands in search of totems that lead to an answer to the mysteries of the Tear of Heaven. With 32 distinct levels of play, each with its own obstacles, battles, quests, characters, puzzles, explorations, experiments, training and building, the game offers a highly complex yet straightforward narrative framework.
