Default Age of Grit - Steampunk RPG

Howdy!

Andy here from indie game studio iqSoup. We're currently working on a steampunk video game: Age of Grit. It'll be an RPG for iPad as well as PC and Mac. We are developing for all three platforms simultaneously--we want the iPad version to be just as polished as the PC and Mac versions. The game is currently in the early stages of development and we'll be having a Kickstarter in a few weeks to try to raise some funding.

In Age of Grit you play as the captain of a beat-up old steampunk airship. You and your crew smuggle goods, hunt down outlaws, and generally fight for what’s right…as long as it pays well of course. Your adventures are set in a heavily cowboy-inspired world, rich with steampunk and clockwork based technology. Its very important to us that the world feels "lived in" and is complete with an extensive history and lore. The people of the world will have a lot of nuance and depth--a major focus of AOG is for players to have both compelling and meaning interactions with the characters they encounter. NPCs will be more than just bland quest givers with exclamation points floating over their heads--they'll be engaging characters, each with a story of their own.

We have an exciting team--some really talented artists and programmers--and the venerable BeatScribe will be working on the original soundtrack for us.

Below is some of the early concept art. Yonder on over to iqsoup.com or facebook.com/iqsoup to see some more artwork and learn a bit more about the game.

Please leave comments below! We really want this game to be awesome so we welcome all the feedback we can get!!! Thanks!

Will this really be iPad only? What about the huge iPhone only marketplace?

My only concern with iPhone is the screen size might be too small for the UI. We might be able to figure something out though. Its certainly something we are considering and trying to sort out. I know there are a ton of iPhone only gamers and I'm sure lots of them would love this game.

Started another forum about the iPad only issue: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showth...54#post3154454

Got some really great feedback! I'm going to do everything I can to get this working on iPhone rather than just iPad. I think a universal app appeals to a boarder audience and it also gives people the freedom to choose which platform they want to play it on.

Default Need Some Feedback - Age of Grit (cowboy airship RPG)

I'm working on a game called Age of Grit and I could really use some feedback. I find it EXTREMELY helpful to get as much feedback as possible even at the earliest stages of development. Take a look and let me know what you think! Does this game appeal to you? If so why and if not why not? What do you like and what don't you like?

Thanks so much! Any feedback--positive or negative--will help me out big time!
