App description: Come -- return with us to the days of yesteryear. When 8 colors were enough, and the pixels were individually detectable to the human eye. This is LOWLANDER, a fantasy role-playing adventure from simpler times. This might *be* your fathers RPG!

Embark on a glorious adventure to save the world from the clutches of the evil sorceress Azamon and her hordes of low-res low-lifes! You begin as a lost and wandering soul who can barely stay alive. Your circumstances will rise in the service of King Shebastian as you help to rid the world of evil. It IS as simple as black-and-white!

I guess we might pull the game and wait til next week. I thought there would be a "coming at midnight" thread this week. Seems like there are several new games, maybe they aren't deemed good enough, or there aren't enough of them?

You're a moderator -- are you sure there will be a new games post tomorrow? I can leave it in the store. It's just that this site is the only one I follow and I love that Wednesday "upcoming" thread.

Are you sure it was mentioned on other sites? AFAIK nobody even knows about this game. I guess that's another reason I was looking forward to the Wednesday list.

Alright, I'm leaving it up. Maybe TouchArcade will be kind enough to consider it a soft launch and list it in next week's new releases.

@slamraman I'll send you a promo code, let me know what you think of the game.

Hell, maybe I just don't know what soft launch means. I thought it just meant a not-very-well-publicized launch

You'll should see it in the store, I am not going to take it down. I'll PM you a promo code as a Happy New Years gift.

Anyone else who wants a promo code, I've got 7 more so just post here and I'll PM you.
