Reviews :

*This looks a blast from the past!*
*The series is incredible, and probably will be the closest thing to a real pen and paper RPG experience that ever makes it to an iOS device*
*The app itself is brilliant. *Graphics are glorious, and the quality is top notch. Obviously, the writing is amazing, and is probably the best written game book available on iOS*.
*Greatest game book ever! This game is a must-have in my book. I played for about 3 hours straight, and I can't really put this game into solid words without giving things way, but let me put it this way... The game is open world. You can do whatever you want*.
*Trust me whole hardly when I say," If you like game books you HAVE to buy this game"*
*I really think this game does a great job of streamlining and redefining the whole gamebook genre. This game feels more immersive and fun than the others games in the genre*.
*The iPad version of Fabled Lands is giving it more the feel of a console or computer RPG than other gamebook adaptations. This might be the only app that appeals to WRPG, JRPG and Gamebook fans, as it has common ground with all three sub-genres. Basically, it looks like a JRPG, it plays like a WRPG and it reads like a gamebook*.
*You think it's a gamebook because you know there's a print version. With the other gamebook adaptions, that's very apparent, they don't even try to hide it or make life easier for you. The first few that I bought, I always thought it was cute because it reminded me of the paper gamebooks I own, but that eventually wore off and now I always only think "why couldn't they use the advantages of the platform better". This game is an example of how to do that. It doesn't give up too much of the gamebook feel to be something entirely different, but it doesn't let me do all the work either, keeps track of stuff for me, and so on.*
*Been playing Fabled Lands for about a couple of hours now and all I can say is I'm really loving it. Gamebooks really shine when used on the iPad. The artwork and style is quite riveting. Not to mention the experience in taking you further in the mind of Dave Morris's creation in another different or perhaps deeper perspective*.

Also, besides the price drop today, I'm pleased to announce that the coming 1.2 update for the game is now "in review" at Apple.

Hmm any Gameplay videos? That's a high price to take a chance without previous knowledge of the game.

I don't think a gameplay video would really show much, it is a game book after all. Nothing moves on screen, it's beautifully drawn settings with a story paragraph on every page.

Oh I see. Haha I didn't understand it was a book so I was wondering what type of RPG it was. Thanks for clarifying.

I think it would be better if Ninievre would keep all this info in the same thread and have the mods change the thread title of the original thread instead of making new threads everytime there's an update or price change so people don't have search for the rest of the info. This method should be more informative and easier to manage.

The problem is I didn't launch the original thread, so it is uneasy for me to each time contact the guy who made it first, along with the fact that he's not often here when I need to post something.

Create a new thread and ask a moderator to close the old one or merge it with your own thread.

This would probably be the best way to do it, just explain to ImNoSuperMan or VeganTnT that you're the dev and they should be able to help you out. They should also be able to help you get a developer account.
