Games With Deep Storylines?

I'm looking for games with good storylines with rpg elements. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your suggestion. Already played Republique, it was gooood.
I have my eye on TWEWY and maybe I'll start playing Ravensword again and finish this time.

Thanks for suggestions. Some real good games are on the list.
I tried Epoch 1 and didn't really like it. What is different on Epoch 2?

EPOCH.1 had a really shallow story, although still unexpectedly surprising. EPOCH.2 has more in terms of story, and has a sort of surprising ending as well.

I'll say that EPOCH.1 is about 1/3rd of EPOCH.2 in terms of gameplay mechanics, content and story.

EPOCH.2 is missing an endless arena mode though, so im looking forward to that being added in in the future.

I feel like there's plenty of RPGs on the AppStore with a story, but with a good story is where the list starts to narrow.

I agree with Epoch, their stories have always intrigued me. Also Mass Effect Infiltrator, the Infinity Blade Games, and Deus Ex. (Those are the only ones from that list that I've played).

Would you be willing to play a non-RPG? Because they have the stronger stories on the AppStore

The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us, and Device 6 for example
