Yeah. This is so CLEARLY inspired by Ghost Stories but keeps things a bit more streamlined and quick moving. I still love Ghost Stories, even if it is insanely hard, but this one is great for a quick challenge.

So close but I ended up going with W.E.L.D.E.R. as Elder Sign was broken into two pricey apps as opposed to one universal (I could excuse this if there were SOME differences between the two versions) and has a number of nasty crash bugs.

If someone is incapacitated, is there a way to un-incapacitate them?

As far as I know, nope. Once out, you're out.

Update!!

V1.1 just hit the Appstore fixing all of the major issue I knew of, at least.

What's new:

- Fixed some instances where the shutters would stay closed after investigator death.
- Fixed an issue where glyphs would incorrectly remain focused for a turn.
- Fixed an issue with Aschan Pete purchasing items from the souvenir shop.

Great Stuff!

Logged in for my first time since March to give a cheer for this game and a thanks to the devs!

Loving this, what i've been waiting for on the ipad! Wanted to play Arkham Horror for years, but never did.

I believe there are expansions to the board game, wonder if we'll ever get those too (i'm spoiled now!) Would like to see Game Center too.

Cthulhu fhtagn!!

I lve ghost stories! And I win and loose, how close are the games? I mean, does it make sense to have both?

I say if you love Ghost Story this one should also be a blast. Similar in concepts but enough uniqueness in execution so as to be something different.

I think the gameplay here is a lot more streamlined and as opposed to having 4 characters with unique abilities to make your party of 1-4, you get 16 characters to choose from in Elder Sign!

One of the simplifications of this game I appreciate is that your character can access any point in the museum each turn, so there is none of Ghost Story's logistical aspects. Related, therefore, is how this game has one space, the Entrance, that acts like your one stop shopping center where the player can buy items, heal, and other game services as opposed to breaking it into 9 different spaces in Ghost Story.

Go for it, you won't be disappointed and are likely to win a bit more often than in Ghost Story (not that it will be a cinch).
