I wish there was a release now button they could press :-) I really want to play this now. I suppose I'd settle for a time machine to go 11 hours into the future. :-)

I have been lucky enough to be able to play this for the last day or so and I must say it is very very well done. From the virtual floating joystick to the way you check stats, every detail has been thought out and perfect. There are quests and sub quests to accomplish and every step along the way just has so much polish. It really is a blast back to the 80's and you will find things like scratch and sniff stickers, rainbows and even a moonwalk to aid you along the way.

BIG SPOILER ALERT - if Sanuku posts a video for this I hope he does not show the first few minutes!!! That is so classic I hope everyone experiences it for themselves when they play!!

I am sure I will have loads more to say but for now I can recommend this wholeheartedly and definitely should be on everyone's list for the evening. Can't rage about this enough and can't stop getting enough of the surprises around every corner!

I just spent about 30 minutes with the game. I had to stop, though. I fear that it's incredible awesomeness may spoil my appreciation of other so-called "games." I will probably start up again when I've come to accept the fact that not every RPG has scratch-and-sniff stickers for combat bonus, that a backpack is an okay substitute for a Trapper-Keeper to hold my character sheet, quest info, and loot. Not every game is as radical as SMRPG, and that's okay. .

So New England Gamer and squarezero, what's up with the IAP? Is it just a full game unlock?

It's episodic, with the first episode free and the rest as IAPs.

Is there an option to buy the complete package with a discount (like Ghost Trick)?

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Yep: No paywalls anywhere to be seen, no consumables, no "gems". Pay for content -- as it should be.

Did I mention that the game is awesome?

Would someone with the game answer this? *runs away*

But yeah, the episodic/IAP info is true... I didn't make it up. I give you my word.

squarezero, just curious... is all the content already available or do we get episodes every so often?

I didn't check, but I remember seeing somewhere that the (some?) content was still in development. I also don't know whether you can buy everything as a package.

Hey, how much is each episode?
