Cross of the Dutchman is an action adventure game, which is based on a true history of the folk legend "Pier Gerlofs Donia'.
The story is located in medieval Western Europe, in the province of Frisia. Pier and his family were living a peaceful life, but the world around them was changing for the worse. Nearby villages were invaded by the saxon legions making lives of the people almost impossible. One day Pier got involved with the Saxon oppressors which escalated the already bad situation. This has caused Pier to gather farmers in order to form a front against the oppressors.
