@pjft, I'm not actually sure how to describe what it is about Kairosoft games like Dungeon Village that I don't enjoy. However, your description is not it Therefore, sold. Thanks!

The problem with the videos is, if I wanted to spend 10 minutes watching a video, I'd just buy the game and try it for 10 minutes. What I want is to get an impression in 1 minute. I don't know what the solution is, but watching all of the videos for all of the games I might be interested in, would take forever.

I just picked it up and am really enjoying it. The similarity to Kairosoft Sims is primarily cosmetic. In a Kairosoft game you basically control the environment, stats, and direct the characters while they go about accomplishing activities on their own. This is more of an RPG which has direct control over customization of the characters and their battles. It is best described, IMO as a Desktop RPG Simulator. Your characters are roleplaying at roleplaying - an additional layer of imagination is superimposed on top quite beautifully.

New Star Soccer is kick ass. I was heavily addicted to that game for a stint there

New Star Soccer is an excellent game!

This also looks equally excellent so I will get this ASAP

I love rpg games and used to play a lot of D&D

Played for nearly one hour now and all I can say is that this is clearly a winner in every category.
I feel like Dr. Who picked me up and brought me back into the 90's. I'm at home here. This game is a billet-doux - a love letter to my youth.

Lot of fun so far... interesting mechanics and 'meta game' style... best of all, can play it vertically oriented.

Totally bought this right now. Didn't even want to wait until I got home from work, needed it on my phone asap. =)

Although I DO have to wait until I get home to play. =(

This looks so twisted I'm interested!

Does the game give you any incentive to risk? I mean what incentive do I have NOT to have my characters fully rested between each encounter?
