That seems kinda true, though nowadays they do seem to be all universal, which is a good thing.

Pretty much why I don't even bother anymore. Sadly, they are the only meal to fill your stomach if your hungry for an RPG, which I believe is why they remain so popular and are received so well. It's not like there are any other publishers consistently putting out RPG's. I feel most RPG fans give them a generous pass and even inflate their perceived quality, because honestly I find most of the stories only passable as their mechanics. I honestly think their games wouldn't rate nearly as high if they had some competition on the AppStore.

As I recall, they have a few development teams. So, there are 2 or 3 basic games, and then more or less reskins of those few different games.

Outside of a few RPG's by smaller developers (pen&paper, doom&destiny, etc) it's pretty much these games or the more expensive Squaresoft re-releases. Personally I prefer the Squaresoft offerings.

I keep checking the threads for the kemco RPG's (and bought some a while back) with the hope that one comes out and is a really stellar release. Maybe this will be the one...

Cool, another Kemco published rpg. I have no issue with the rate in which these games come out since there are several teams making them. Plus the file sizes tend to be tiny and all the games at some point hit the buck mark which means I have a big backlog of them. Granted, these aren't the best AAA Rpg's ever made, but they aren't bad and they do scratch the itch without feeling like I gotta install some multi hundred megabyte port of a classic FF game I've played before where they axed the classic 2d graphics that I honestly preferred. So really, outside of a few notable other RPG's on iOS (talking realtime movement and turn based battles)... this is it.

The real question is, is this another lazy port? The fact that it's universal brings a bit if hope with it. Hopefully it actually has true retina widescreen support and isn't stretched or has borders. When someone takes the plunge let me know. It's my gf's birthday tmrw so I can't be that guy. Who knows how much money that's gonna cost. Haha

Reskin is okay, but is there improvement? No point using the same asset and just rewrite stories after stories.

We can see huge improvement in games like Inotia series, Zenonia series and many other games series. From my point of view, they just making games with the same asset and not trying to improve the asset at all?
