The simple fact that a quick glance at the app description is not quite enough for me to determine exactly what kind of game this is intrigues me.

A trailer and a Pocket Tactics article later, I'm thinking that the actual game might be equally intriguing, and am hitting that buy button as I type.

This game is the real deal. The depth and scope of those old school "paragraph based" role playing adventure games, but "right sized" for the mobile platform.

Even if some of the same things happen to you over multiple games (as is the nature of this type of game), you never know WHEN it will happen in a given game, or if you will be prepared enough to deal with it!

Also, the story elements are so well interwoven into the game, that you can seemlessly and naturally find yourself on different sides of the same conflict based on how each game plays out. But of course, just because someone ASKS you to help them in this game, it does not mean you HAVE to. The element of choice and consequences of your choices having a real impact is key in this game.

There is just so much to like (read "LOVE") about this game.

I'm intrigued but at $3 I'll need a bit more info and more In depth reviews before making a purchase. Definitely interesting though.

Skip the Big Mac for one meal and get it.

Seriously, though, if the terms "role-playing game", "board game", or "high fantasy adventure" excite you at all, then you should just get this now and thank DSG for making it later.

I'll go out on a limb here and make one more comparison. Think of a game like Lords of Midnight, but A LOT more "user friendly". Even though you are only moving around one party instead of many, it has the same feeling as you explore the land, make friends and enemies, and get stuff, all while working toward a main objective. It even has multiple ways of winning, similar to LoM. It is just nowhere near as abstract or difficult to get into.
