This game is pretty cool I've only played for about 30 mins so far but it's looking good

I am definitely intrigued. Looks like a Nethack variant, given that it has a shop. Awesome! Definitely going to give this a go.

Just to mention there will be additional content for this game soon in an update. Also I apologise for the issues some people are having on early iPhone/Pod variants - I'm working to get these fixed as soon as possible.

Did anyone make an account? There is a "login" button but I don't see any information about what it does

The version up at the moment should be compatible with as far back at 3.1.4 and with iPads.

You don't need to use the login button if you don't want to save your games anywhere but on your phone. The game is actually playable on the web (http://www.legendsofyore.com) and on Android, along with iOS. Creating an account and saving your games to the internet lets you play your same adventure on the web and any of your devices.

Hopefully not Sony's cloud : D

But current-events jokes aside, this looks like an awesome game. Big fan of roguelikes.

I've placed geocached DRM-free USB copies of my newest game in various locations throughout Europe and Southeastern US. Email me if you find 'em for the free "explorer" cape.
