And that Resistance needs you!

JOIN THE ADVENTURE: Engage with the Resistance as they begin their immense task of restarting the Great Engines to drive back the fog and finding the Great Engineer.

This is really good online action adventure game. Looks great, controls great and it let's you figure everything out by yourself which I like. This is religious game though, guess not everyone likes that.

Don't see so far how religion fits into this looks very steampunk/fantasy with no mention of religion yet but I'm all for my kids playing it cause it is sure to be kid safe and have a positive message

This community plays religious games on a regular basis, I'm sure they won't mind one more.

Also, why are iPad games continually being put into the universal section?

I am really enjoying this game but I'm confused about a few things. I have made it pretty far eithout having to purchase an episode. Does anyone know at point in the game you need to purchase it to proceed? And I don't see a place in game to purchase the episodes so do you just buy them from their website?

Hi Repulsa - I'm one of the developers at Scarlet City Studios so I thought i'd answer your question. If you are playing on a desktop client (Mac / PC) then you will be redirected to our webstore to purchase, once you reach the end of the free section. On tablets, this is all handled via in-app purchases. The length of the free 'taster' section really depends on your play speed and play style!

How much content do you get per episode? How many hours of gameplay, quests, etc? And can several children play on one account? How does that work? I Definitly don't want to purchase the episode more then once.

It is not an overtly religious game, it is allegorical. The storyline is meant to be compared to the corresponding bible story. Right now I am just struggling with the expense of the unlock. I am already a level 5 and episode one only lets you reach level 10 and I heard its only about six hours of gameplay. It seems like pre unlock I've already played half the game. Maybe if it wasn't 9.99 but that's pretty expensive. I think I'll wait till the price drops later.
