The release will be very soon.
Hopefully I'll be able to give you a specific date in the coming month!

I have a new screenshot.

This is Andrea's ZEN-Shop.
This is located in the second town in the game called Glenhook.

You'll buy all your items here in Version 1.0 - including the ZENCrystals for capturing ZENFORMS, fruit to feed them, and ZENFORM dolls for you to collect.

Phew, WHAT A GAME!!! I've spent my weekend playing lil' kingdom, but whenever this game comes out, this is definitely going to be on my list.... Frankly, what I mostly care about is the art style!!!

Thanks for the comments lads.
@Menno1555 - the story will be pretty big. When the game is released, it won't have the "full" vision for the story. The reason for this is so I can get the game in your hands sooner. What I'll be doing is updating the game (for free- just check for an update in the App Store) as often as I can adding more content such as maps, quests and adding more to the storyline.

With Version 1.0 - the story will end kinda quickly (the game will tell you) but it's not the "end". Imagine it as like an episode of ZENFORMS, wait until the next update to find out what happens next.
When it ends, you can keep playing. And keep raising your ZENFORMS.
Then just get the free update once it's out and it will tell you where to go. Just load up your save file like normal. No need to stop playing while you wait!

I posted this earlier on the CP facebook.
Of course, I got a lot of "I'll pick charmander" comments lol. But.... Who will you pick?

This was taken from your first day in Protector School. Principal Vicar (a Grand Protector) is giving you your first ZENFORM.

Each Newborn ZENFORM is in the wild. But this first one will have a stat boost.
Each ZENFORM under the Adult Stage also comes in different colors in the wild. You can even change a ZENFORMS color based on fruit you give it.... See:

That's Freno. The 2 Legged Newborn - his "default" color is red, but you can find him in green and blue lol

I also recorded a quick video to test out some video capture software. It kinda lagged, but this gives you a good look at a little event near the start of the game and making choices in the game! Check it out:

Loving the art style, Only thing that looks kinda off is the main characters walking motion. If you watch him next to his friend, he seems to twitch while he walks, which is kinda weird.

Any ETA on when the battle system will be revealed? Can't wait to see it in action

Are the alternate colors also available when you get the first zenform from the principal figure (not really sure what his name was right now)?

No, the alternate colored zenforms have to be found in the wild.

I'm just so sick of breathing!

Will this game be universal, or will it be only for iPhone, and 2x playable on iPad? Or will there be an Zenforms HD version?
