Glyph Quest - puzzle RPG

Hello touching arcaders!

My name is Alex Trowers. I used to make games a long time ago for a company called Bullfrog. With me is Leanne Bayley. She makes games but is currently working on a baby that could well pop out any time now.

Have you ever wondered how hard it would be to make an indie game whilst heavily pregnant? Well, we can tell you.

TLDR - very.

But we've done it. It's in submission now. A curious blend of Dungeon Raid, 10000000 and a dash of Pokemon for iOS.

Want to know more about the game? Hit up http://glyphquest.com/ where you'll also find links to our blogs, telling you all about each side of the story.

Looks interesting. Love the heavy outlined stainglassy art style too.

Ooh, we're through submission and available on the App Store!

Man, that was quite a journey. Leanne's at 39 weeks and Sproglet is still baking, so Glyph Quest wins!

Some caveats - there are some text issues with iPhone 3 / 3GS and Retina iPads. A fix for these is in the works.

If you want to get beyond Level 4, you need to buy the Mage License - this is a one-time payment and the only thing we charge you for in the game.

Also, an Android version is on its way.

I hope you enjoy it!

Wow. This is an excellent game.

Definitely recommend playing this. Even those scared of downloading any free game. Super polished, excellent game play, another reason I'm happy to game on an iOS device. Get it.
