Soul Gambler: A Dark Magic Graphic Novel

Hi Guys,

I am Tulio Soria, Product Lead of Soul Gambler, an upcoming iPad Game that mixes mechanics of RPG, Comics and Adventure Games.

The game is inspired by Goethe’s Faust, a tragic play written in the 19th century, adapted into a contemporary and engaging version that puts the reader-player into the role of Faust, an ordinary young man living in the present day. As Faust is dispiritedly leaving his boring job one day, he is offered a tempting proposal: to sell parts of his soul in exchange for the fulfillment of his wishes.

If he were to NOT accept the offer, wouldn't that be a pretty short game?

You can play the first chapter on their site http://www.soulgambler.com you'll find out this is and offer he can't refuse.

I've played chapter 1 about 2 or 3 times and it's pretty interesting. I just wanted it to be longer. I can't wait to get through the whole thing!

It looks and sounds really impressive, well done guys

~edit~

I tried to play the 1st chapter on your website but the page never loads. The "loading bar" for the game gets all the way to the end and then... nothing.

~edit~

Nevermind, some CTRL+F5ing later and it worked

I've already emailed support about this problem, but I should add more details here:

I'm playing Soul Gambler (new version) on an iPad 2 with iOS 7 installed. I'm stuck in Chapter 1: it's the hospital scene after I save Wagner. The screen turns to black with the line, "My friend was alive, but he was not ok at all. And I..."--but then I can't tap the screen to advance the story. I've already tried saving and restoring--but the story 'freezes' at the same point.

Soul Gambler on App Store

Thank you verlaine for reporting it. We have realized this bug yesterday and we already submitted an updated version.

Sabin, the game is online on APP Store, please check out http://bit.ly/1bZpLZW
(I think that you are having problem to see the game because it was released today, so apple says that takes 24h to everyone can see the game).

Best!!!
