Vovin your knowledge on this stuff is really impressive. Do you have a general interest in ancient lore and myths etc or have you studied in it?

Supportive active developer (and he's so cute)
Widescreen support
Familiar gameplay
No IAP???!!! What? Does that exist? Are we in Superman's bizarro universe?

Cons of buying this game:

.........

You guys are not making this very easy!

Wonder if it runs on the 3GS. If it runs on an iPod Touch 4 and all iPads, then it may. Have to keep an eye on this one.

In the vid are characters named "Sanzo" and "Goku", if I remember correctly. They were in Sayuki.
And Goku rings a bell.
Hi Vovin,

Thanks a lot for explaining Journey to the West in so much details ! But we got to do a disclaimer that the game does not follow the storyline strictly. We use the characters and some famous events for reference. Then we use manga comic strips to tell the story with pictures only so that its more international

Yup, Saiyuki is actually the japanese name for Journey to the West which is one of the four chinese classics which includes 3 kingdoms, red chamber and water margin.

We decided to use this Saiyuki theme because we thought that it is one of the lesser used classic reference in games. Furthermore, the story has lots of interesting monsters !

Naming wise, we decided to go with the japanese version for the main characters like "Goku,Sanzo" because those names has been stuck in our mind since we watch the anime many years ago.

Thanks you guys for supporting non-IAP ! That was actually one main reason that we fall out with the publishers during negotiation...

Hi awp69,

I am very sorry that it only support Gen 4 devices and up. The reason is that there are quite a lot of sprites used in the game so the memory requirements are quite high. We tried to do with 3GS but it crashed too often...

Already bought and now downloading it.
You sold me with the theme.

I think that the most fascinating about JtTW is, that the characters are mighty, powerful beings but in human nature at the same time, and thus: far from perfect.
