Thanks so much for the post. : ) It's a bargain basement price of 0.99 cents because we want people to enjoy our stories---just call me Dollar Tree Cat. : ) And we are using a new engine which has so many features we love, like being able to Mark and Recall to a scene of your choice. You have to buy the Scroll--available from Pedsipec's shop in the Resistance Hideout.

We think the story is compelling and put a lot of work into the terrains, including some beautiful underwater terrains.

I think you will get a lot of bang for your buck and want to revisit the world when you have a free moment to wander around.

The intro music is particularly compelling--it makes you think of the sad Princess with a spiky magic collar around her neck, subdued by evil magic and whose power is being used by a horrible villain to enslave her and her people but of course you will save them.

Just downloaded it. Really impressed, its a nice nod to old skool RPG's, seems to be quite a huge land to explore. Touch controls work well. Only had a quick go talking to some characters, finding out about various missions etc. It reminds me of some old skool RPG's on iOS a few years back, thats not negative, thats positive as i love the 'old skool' vibe from this one.

For a dollar its well worth it, a great homebrew title

Please stop saying old skool so much. It hurts.


The graphics (even the icon) look hm... I don't want to say bad, because the graphics are the least of my concern, but they look rather... unpolished. Makes me worry about other aspects of the game that aren't polished as well.


Still though, for a buck I'll get this.

Oops yeah that was a few too many !

The engine for the game isnt probably the best (Its not like its Aralon etc) but like i say i quite like it as its a bit different and you can tell a lot of loves been put into this by the one man team. Enjoyed the Quest etc so if you can look past some of the issues its probably quite a large RPG to enjoy

I just saw that this developer also made WizzardIsland. I couldn't get past the lack of polish there, so I doubt I'll be able to do so here.


PS: the game engine for this and Aralon are the same. Unity 3D.

@Elsa--Omber is made with Unity and a newer version of the ORK editor. I'm at fault for the icon because we are a small outfit and graphics are not our strong point. But I swear the other graphics in the game are very good because we used graphics from Sylon of Redshift and a lot of graphics from the Unity asset store, except for one small icon--not mentioning which one. : ) I did make that one too. It's a closed book.

So please try the game and forgive me for the icon. : ) We have made games for many years that have made people very happy so please give it a try.

I don't really follow what is going on with the shield in your character's hand.
From that perspective you should see the back of the shield.

I would like to see what combat looks like as well.

Thanks for the video!
