The tense excitement of Elder Sign is now available for iPhone/iPod Touch! Elder Sign: Omens places you in control of up to four intrepid investigators, as they fight to keep all-powerful Ancient Ones from invading our world through a museums arcane exhibits!

*Build a team of unique investigators*
*Explore an ever-changing museum*
*Face challenging arcane tasks*
*Save the world from absolute destruction*
*Expand the horror with exciting in-app purchases*

Can you stand against the impending arrival of a malevolent Ancient One?


While Elder Sign: Omens brilliantly conveys the spirit of the Elder Sign dice game, a few noteworthy differences were adopted to optimize the mobile play experience:

-A limited number of available Ancient Ones streamlines the game play experience while offering adjustable levels of difficulty. Face Yig in normal mode, Azathoth in difficult mode, or Cthulhu in very hard mode (in-app purchase required to face Cthulhu).
-A number of subtle changes increase the peril of defending humanity. For example, the random negative effects drawn every midnight are more challenging, and the frequency of no effect results has been decreased. Monsters have likewise been altered to make them more difficult.
-Finally, there are no Ally cards in Elder Sign: Omens, which further streamlines play while increasing the overall challenge.

Can somebody who has this already please upload a video of you playing a whole game? I really want to see this in action, but the Mac version is not out yet. And just so people know, this game is from the same designer of Arkham Horror, a game that is the major influence of the developers of Necronomicon Horror. Elder Sign is actually considered by many to be "Arkham Horror lite". This is the real deal Cthulhu mythos game for iOS.

Sorry, I don't have video capability, but I just played through a whole game (lost), and I can already say this is a keeper for sure. I was a bit lost during the first half, but by the end of the game I felt like I "got it". Now I can't wait to play again with a deeper understanding from the beginning. This is one game I'll double-dip with and get it for the iPad. I'm off to play again...

I've been waiting for this to be released as an iOS version. I have the physical board game of this as well as Arkham Asylum, and Mansions of Madness boardgames by Fantasy Flight Games. Instant purchase for me without a doubt.

Does the game track any sort of career/best run stats?

It saves your high scores and after every game is an available detailed breakdown of stats.

Beautiful looking game. Waiting for it to download now... hoping Fantasy Flight brings much more of it's IP to the iPhone.
