That's awesome.

It's like if you combined the game series Civilization with a game book. The decision screenshots that have been posted are a minor part of the game.
So it's like one of those 30-dollar dating sim/visual novel games in the Japanese App Store

Well, this is not for Japanese store alone.

I don't know but many great titles never see a price cut. FYI, please.

Yes, like that I know that most of them are available in the U.S. but very few have been translated to English.

Bought this the second it went up. It's well worth the price and I really wish more devs would start porting their games over and have them be as polished as this really is.

My one complaint after nearly three hours zipped by is that the appearance of the text varies from so-so to poor at 2x. Otherwise I think the game looks fine.

Looking forward to spending more time with it. There is SO much going on here, it is a bit tough to wrap your head around. The interface is decent. I've made mistakes by accident a couple of times, but one interesting thing is that you can jump backward in time to the end of any year you have completed. No guarantee you will get the same events, though.

Well, I'm a big fan of civilization. Game books, you say? Can't really relate to that, so I'm still unsure whether to get this or not.
