Fans of Lone Wolf and the Sorcery series should definitely check this out. The free portion is very generous and should give you a good idea of the story, characters, and gameplay; the rest of the game is unlocked with a single IAP purchase (there's also an expansion available for more money).

So far the story has been pretty engaging and a step up from generic fantasy. The characters (particularly the secondary ones) are memorable. There's a Bioware-style dialogue system, which includes the possibility of starting up romances between party members. The combat reminds me of Wizardry and Might and Magic, with a bit of Final Fantasy -- there's a fair amount of skill and tactical depth, and party management is plays a big role. For examples, enemies can bash your front line characters and drive them backwards, exposing your mages and archers.

So far, Loren has been a pleasant surprise: a polished RPG/visual novel with decent amount of depth.

Thanks for the imps Squarezero, I downloaded this earlier but haven't had a chance to play yet. It looks a little more friendly than their other new game Planet Stronehold that features energy recharge as one of the IAP. I'll probably end up buying the full game and expansion if I end up enjoying it as much as I think I will.

Everything is really high quality, perhaps too high

There is a slight delay when i click on the buttons. Is anyone else experiencing this?

Getting the same thing, but it's not gamebreaking at all. It may also be because my device is a little outdated.

Thanks for the vid, but the guy who made it is such a tool it's nearly impossible to watch.

Nice. Saw this one Steam and was thinking of getting it- I'll get it on my iPad instead later.

I have really been enjoying this game, they did a really good job with the battle system, it's a lot of fun and very polished. I really like that there are battles/tasks that you can replay for money, loot, and experience. I ended up buying the full game and the expansions and will probably look into Planet Stronghold after I finish my first play through of this. I'm just a little put off by the Colony Energy Recharge IAP in Planet Stronghold but I'll see what that's about before I decide to but the full game and expansion.
