Fabled Lands I iPad RPG to be released very soon



Greetings

After no less than 2 years of development and 30 people working on the project, I'm pleased to announce that Fabled Lands I for iPad will be released very soon !

Description :

SET OUT ON A JOURNEY OF FABULOUS ADVENTURE
- IN LANDS BEYOND THE LIMIT OF YOUR IMAGINATION

THE ULTIMATE 2D RPG FOR YOUR iPAD ! COMING SOON IN EARLY 2011


Choose for yourself what role to play, where to go and what to do.


In THE WAR-TORN KINGDOM, revolution rages in Sokara.You can join forces with the king to restore his throne - or look for profit in the pay of the dictator, Grieve Marlock. Use fighting skills or sorcery, bribery or skulduggery to survive the assassins in the city backstreets.


Descend to the sewers of Yellowport to defeat the vile rat-king, Skabb. Retrieve the golden net of the gods from the Repulsive Ones deep beneath the sea - and use the rewards of your victories to travel beyond the boundaries of the known world.


Your journeys will bring you foes and friends, danger and triumph, fortune and fame - and more adventures than you have ever dreamed of. Role-playing as you've never known it before - in the perilous world of the FABLED LANDS.

More information and... screenshots galore !! on the Fabled Lands apps community website

Oh, how I wish that this was coming for the iPhone/iPod Touch as well. Heck, I may buy it anyway for the eventuality of owning an iPad; I had a couple dozen apps ready to install by the time I bought an iPod Touch.

For anyone who doesn't know, Fabled Lands was a fantasy roleplaying gamebook series (like Fighting Fantasy and Lone Wolf) but with a couple of really unique features. First, the gameplay was completely open-ended/sandbox style: you could wander around, go back and forth between cities on foot or by ship, take quests, invest money, ship cargo and more. The game doesn't end, and even if you manage to complete every quest you find, the commerce system and random encounters between areas could keep you playing for as long as you wish.

Second (and I don't know if this will translate to the App or not), the gamebooks could be combined. If you chose a certain passage in Gold and Glory it would lead you to a passage in The War-Torn Kingdom. And it worked both ways (or all six ways for the books that were released), so if you had all of them, you had this huge open world in which to adventure. It is the closest that gamebooks ever got to traditional tabletop role-playing games in terms of scope.

It may have been "after your time" (it was after mine, at least). The books initially came out in '95 and '96, so a good ten years after the golden age of gamebooks.

Most of the originals cost a pretty penny used, but they are being re-released starting in December, and should be available via Amazon.
