Can't wait for Dragon Fantasy to pop up in US App Store; this my most anticipated release this year. [Also hoping to see RPG Quest - Minimae 2 sometime soon]

I'm also wishing for a non-linear open world JRPG on iOS. It's cool to see alternative developer leaving helpful impressions; good luck with the release of Puppysauraus today!

I've wanted this game since the first day I saw it.

I'm just a sixteen bit sprite in an eight bit game.

First of all, great to see all the excitement here!

Now to answer some questions...

It's a very old school style RPG so mostly linear. You don't have to follow the path but there is a single progressing storyline that leads to the ending.

Gameplay length is in the 6-10 hour range depending on how quickly you try to push through.

We're planning on adding side stories in future updates to add even more play time and better expand the world.

As for a map...well...
It's too big to embed

Buying Dragon Fantasy irregardless but as a random aside it's curious that developers can make massive open world RPGs with cutting edge 3D graphics like Aralon or today's Earth and Legend but no one has yet made an iOS massive open word 2D "retro" RPG. Good by-gone non-iOS examples of this are... Final Fantasy 6 which excelled in part due to the vast open world exploration and huge party collection; similar for the golden Ultima IV: Quest for the Avatar [NES].

Thanks for tolerating the off topic rant. Now... to... wait... for... Dragon Fantasy... 2 hours... back to playing Sword & Earrings for now.
