We also have original orchestral music for all levels. Mb after mb, it adds up quickly.
We could have made it smaller, but the textures would have been lower resolutions, animations not as fluid, a single music for the whole game, and no voice overs.

A tradeoff we had to make.
All good points... thanks for filling us in!

Decisions, decisions... original orchestral music?

Could you clarify something else? Is this an endless runner with, IDK, "combat stops?"

Thanks!

It's a fair way to put it yes

Also, for the questions about the 50 quests, it's indeed an infinite runner. You complete quests to "level up" - when you reach the highest level, you "restart" leveling up as "game +", with better gold reward for each level +.

Makes sense?

Anyone got a video or trailer for this? As it looks pretty cool and I might pick this up tonight when it hits the uk.

I really don't blame you, and personally I think sacrificing your artistic vision in order for the game to take less space would have been a very stupid move, so kudos to you for sticking with your guns. Sorta swaying me the other way now.

Might I ask what the file size is uncompressed, if it's not too much of a hassle?

Is there GC achievements or only leaderboards?

This game sounds like it's going to be completely different than IB: Dungeons though. Mix of a runner and hack n' slash. Should be interesting. Anxious to hear some impressions.

Did a quick scrub of the thread and didn't pick up any mention of IAP. Is there any? If so, how pertinent is it to gameplay? Gameplay-wise, is it available for simply aesthetic upgrades or significant power-ups if one chooses not to grind through levels?
