Myths and legends try to explain real events that happened a long time ago. Stories have been passed from generation to generation, as tales to be told in front of the fire on long winter nights, but... What if they were not fantasy at all?
Scattered around the world, we find amazing remains of lost civilizations that defy our understanding of the ancient world, and invite us to think about the people that built them. How and why did they do it? What happened to them?
Although the adventures of "The Zurvan Club" are fictitious stories, they are based on real ancient myths and legends that trigger our imagination. As our own civilization has become more and more advanced, old miracles and tales are viewed from a completely different point of view.
Now, we are living in a time in where "magic mirrors", "flying carpets" or "divine fire falling from the sky" could be understood as "computers", "helicopters" and "atomic bombs". We don't need to say that people travel inside a whale because we all know what a submarine is. If we take the ancient records and re-read them from a modern point of view, a new amazing and shocking aspect of our past emerges...
Think about it... and enjoy the adventure of life!

Join the team in this astounding adventure, looking for an impossible place that seems to hold the secrets of a hideous, out of control, ancient system.
Action ramps up in this second episode where Alex, Julia and their friends explore the ancient remains of an alien civilization, looking for a clue that could explain the strange phenomenon that affects the legendary island of Saint Brendan. Bizarre and threatening creatures inhabit the place, and danger hides in every corner as they continue their quest to uncover the extraordinary secret that is hidden deep in the island. But this is only the tip of the iceberg that will lead them to a series of fascinating discoveries.
In the old Sumerian civilization, Zurvan was the God of infinite time and space, deity of matter. Zurvan is the parent of the two opposites representing the good God Ahura Mazda and the evil Angra Mainyu. Zurvan is regarded as a neutral God; being without gender or passion, one whom there is no distinction between good or evil. Zurvan is also the God of destiny, light and darkness. Zurvan is a normalized rendition of the word, which in Middle Persian appears as either Zurvan, Zruvan or Zarvan. The Middle Persian name derives from Avestan zruvan-, "time" or "old age".
