App description: Should you buy this game? If you are looking for a "game", then no. The Story of a World isn't a game in that sense, you are not gonna find a lot of interaction, or deep, evolving strategies. It is more of an experience. There are things to discover and to unlock, yes, but the primary point of this app is to create a meditative experience. You will have to be willing to let your mind relax, to think, to create your own understanding of what is happening if you are going to enjoy it.

"The Story of a World isnt a game based on trying to appeal to gamers the way modern developers do. Theres no unlockables, or levels per say, instead, The Story of a World is more of an experience that you can choose to keep coming back to whenever youd like. In the end, The Story of a World isnt going to be for everyone. If you appreciate art, and are even more excited about interactivity within it, then The Story of a World may be for you" - Indiegamemag

The Story of a World is an interactive piece of art. You are presented with an empty world where you choose what happens to it.

Depending on what you choose to add to the world, be it mountains, water, lifeforms or other, the world might evolve into something new. Explore the different ways to built the world in order to find the 18 goals.

Very curious about this title , any gameplay vid coming?
How is the longevity?
and is there an element of "life sim", as in different critters that evolve?

There's a gameplay video, it can be seen on http://www.jm-j.com/storyworld

There's "some" critter evolution, but only in the sense that some can evolve, but not in different ways. It's more an grow game than it is a god-sim.
