Ashes & Roses - artistic sandbox/adventure game by The Moonwalls

Hi everyone!
A little preview of our new great game (our best game so far) - Ashes & Roses.

✮✮✮✮✮✮✮✮

This is your game, your imagination...

Brace yourself for an unusual artistic experience Ė a story that you weave yourself, a remarkable world that you can craft with your own fingers. Youíre not only an observer Ė you are the narrator.

Death is a tragedy, but from each tragedy exists a way out... When a young woman dies, only flowers can carry her cry for help. When a rose blooms upon a fresh grave, itís far more than just a flower... It becomes a messenger of love and hope. It is a Soul.

How did this woman die? Was she a murder victim, a suicider, a patient defeated by a serious disease? What did her life look like? Was she happy, abused by her husband, did she commit a horrible crime? Itís for you to decide!

Choose from dozens of thoughts, dreams, desires and mix them up into combinations that radically alter the story, spicing it up until the tragic finale.

Enjoy these attractive features:
1. A unique approach to adventure games, with actual artistic value.
2. Beautiful graphics combining 3d elements and hand-drawn illustrations.
3. A fully adjustable story that you can reshape to your liking.
4. Dozens of story elements that you can combine into unique connections.
5. Hidden bonuses, characters and endings.
6. Amazing soundtrack created by a highly talented composer.
7. Natural multi-touch interactions.
8. Intuitive interface.
9. Hours of captivating gameplay.
10. Real-time gameplay experience in 24 hours mode.
11. Retina support.
12. iOS 5 compatible.



This game will be also available for iPad.

Available: February 2012

Best regards,
Marcin,
The Moonwalls.

Sounds very intriguing. Has it already been submitted and just awaiting approval?

Awesome! Not that I don't love The Train (still anticipating Ep. 3), but it's nice to see you turning out other games as well.

The Train 3 is in production as well. I had a little problems with content of huge updates for previous episodes (some new parts were too hard and shocking), but finally, after few months of hard work I can one more time send them for review (during few last days I also managed to strongly reduce their size).

I have about 60% of The Train episode 00 finished, so it will be available soon.

So did you actually add some content to Part 2 as well? Last we talked you were only updating part 1 with new stuff.

Second episode has some improved graphics, fixed issues and bugs, improved hint system, shorter loading times, smaller app size, and one additional puzzle (it's more like an addition to exsisting part of the game).
Also there's a little surprise in both episodes - I decided to go more into totalitarian atmosphere, and after having the entire story of the third part finished, I decided to change few things.

I would say that the first episode is an entire new game, and second episode is a little longer, improved existing game.

I now it took pretty long to get them finished, and matched Apple's review policy (I'm sorry about this), but it was worth it.

Even better. So are those updates in review as well? I'll certainly have to revisit them.
