Wow, if Charles Cecil is involved, I have high hopes for this. It does look good from the video.

Just bought, almost got this on the PC a few weeks ago and decided to wait. I'm so happy I did! Point and click games are great on the iPad.

Couldn't mash the "Buy" button fast enough this morning when I saw it! Although I think I might want to play this on the big iPad vs iPhone now that I see how pretty it is.

Can't get this to work for some reason. Everytime i open the app it starts and the immediately shuts off and goes back to home screen.

Running IOS 9.3

Nevermind. Looks like it was still running in background but was going to home screen for some reason.

I don't know if this matters to anyone, but the game is not full screen on iPad, like the App Store screenshots would make you believe. It still looks great, but somewhat disappointing. Volume also seems a bit low for the voice acting? Anyone else have that issue?

I was all ready to hit the buy button as well, but one thing holding me back is the fact that the game is painfully short, well under two hours, according to reviews that I have read on some adventure gaming sites, as well as from people buying it on Steam. However, the price on iPad is considerably fairer than the Steam price.

I wasn't even aware of the "less than full screen on iPad" issue until it was mentioned in this thread.
