This showed up in the US store today under Best New Games, with a copyright date of 2013. Was this soft-launched somewhere else earlier?

Same dudes (and dudettes) who did Talisman Prologue, interesting. I'm guessing it's a rebalance/relaunch.

Edit: Another interesting fact is that it won't work if you don't connect to Gamecentre, which I don't.

Looks like some artifacts of a previous version/other region are still in this - there is some French description text regarding the Dagon short story that should be in English.

IAP required to unlock "premium" story choices. Multiple typos. No thanks.

Been playing this for the last few days, awesome Triple Triad styled game. Can't believe everyone dismissed it so quickly.
