It's great to see the positive feedback concerning our female heroes.

And in regard of female role models with a strong mind and personality, you might enjoy Kingturn Plus and Kingturn Underworld even more.

In Kingturn Plus the Paladin Belayne is the key character in many battles, and story-wise she stakes her territory as the Captain of the 5th Royal Company from the very first moment.

And the necromancer Juliet in Kingturn Underworld ... well, let's just say she is in a league of her own.

2 more days...

"Fan favorite" X-com Enemy Unknown is also coming out the same day, that one will be a 2GB compressed download costing $19.99 featuring much fewer missions than any other platform it's on (as X-com is a cross platform port)... Kingturn Plus, at $3.99, couldn't ask for better competition among SRPG fans looking for a full tactical experience with plentiful content and a mobile device friendly interface. Years ago if someone told me I'd shrug off a X-com game in favor of any other brand I'd never have believe it but the Kingturn series games are modern day classics.

Couldn't agree more! While I can't wait to play Kingturn Plus on Wednesday night, I don't even think I'll grab XCOM...

As I deleted Warhammer Quest for being a repetitive overly easy mess I couldn't help but wonder how much more competent a Warhammer video game would have been in the hands of developers like Mangobile. It's a shame to see some inferior turn based strategy games get more attention instead of the quality that is in the Kingturn series releases. At best games like Warhammer Quest might be a "gateway drug" to introduce new users to deeper more compelling SRPGs like Kingturn Plus.

This makes me that much more curious to see what Mangobile's next project is; although if Kingturn Underworlds is coming to iOS in September or October (yeah!) so it might be some time.

^^^^^ +1. WQ is nowhere near as much fun as Kingturn.

Really getting excited for this release now. I know im guarenteed many hours of serious gameplay alongside a charming story with great characters.

So many releases but so many fail to have compulsive gameplay alongside a well written story with protagonists you actually end up caring about. This is what distinguishes the classics from the also ran's in the RPG genre imo.

And there I thought how lucky I was to be just an indie developer, and no one having high expectations anyway.

Well, I guess it's best to actively involve you guys in some of the design decisions of the Kingturn successor. Then there are less people who can blame us afterwards .

For "Kingturn 2014" Mangobile will buy out the WHQ art team, and give us the great Kingturn gameplay and story with WHQ-level graphics

I like the sound of it .

Or even better ...
- Brandon Sanderson and Joe Abercrombie write the story together
- I license Kingturn 2 to Rodeo Games for an insolent price and let them do all the work
- You guys (TouchArcade members) supervise the whole development process to make sure they don't do anything foolish
- And I pay a visit to Far Far Away in the meantime

How does that sound?

This thread is closed soon, right?
I really hope so
