Oooohhhhh finally finally finally

I always wondered when Ep. 2 would come.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Ace!
Problem is I have 4 adventure games stacked up to play and zero time to dig into them
Got a bit of the way into Runaway Dream of the Turtle part 2, and downloaded but not started on Broken Sword 5, Dream Revenant and The Last Express. Loved part 1 of this though, beautiful art style.

Hope this will get a little more buzz ... The guys who created this game are awesome and I hope chapter 2 get's the attention it deserves!

Judging from previous experiences with the App Store though, crappy sh*t like Flappy Birds often gets a lot of attention while great, intelligent designed games like this one don't even get on the radar of most people.

Still hope they make it to chapter 3 though

At least for me this was an instant buy - Loved chapter 1 and can only recommend this game to everybody who likes classic adventures. Support these guys, they even gave half of their pre-order earnings to a charity

Bought as well but for Steam instead. The resolution wasn't as sharp as on the iphone so I kinda wished I had bought it here instead

2 years waiting for the 2nd episode... Think it will be worthy to wait 4 more to have complete game (episodes 3+4)?
I really liked episode 1 but length was really short and now i cannot even remember the story :-/
