A game set in Glorantha? Definately a must-buy for me.
Love the paint work. Reminds me of good old roleplaying times.

Nope, it isn't universal, and there is not an iPad version planned. The reasoning is that the original art is said to not be high resolution enough. Obviously, I would prefer art and UI optimized for iPad, especially at a premium price. At the same time, I've wanted to play this one for many years and expect to end up grabbing it anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I don't mind paying premium for an iPad-optimized version. In the meantime, I would wait...

I just read that Bill Harris, who hates iOS, starts to think about it seriously (and get a iTouch) just because this game is ported...

This is a beautiful game! Just be aware that you will need to read through the ingame instruction to get the best out of it! If you take the time you will love this story based text game.

This is the best game of this week. The graphics and price will likely serve as an excellent filter to keep people who won't understand it from shitting up iTunes reviews.

It doesn't expressly say it in the description, but this is essentially a Gamebook right?

It's like if you combined the game series Civilization with a game book. The decision screenshots that have been posted are a minor part of the game.
