FABLED LANDS II HD (gamebook/sandbox 2D RPG) is released!

FABLED LANDS II HD GOLD EDITION presents a two-in-one compilation pack loaded with the FABLED LANDS HD huge 2D RPG base game, along with the newest FABLED LANDS II HD expansion pack. More than 30 hours of playtime for a discounted price, including dozens of new items, quests and monsters!

This compilation is recommended for customers who didn't buy the base FABLED LANDS HD app yet. For other customers wishing to import their old savegames and characters, please use the in-app purchase feature in your base game after updating FL HD to current update 2.3.

*** Gold Edition special gift (in-game item) ***

Every character you start with will receive a Silver Horseshoe, increasing the odds to find a magical chest in-game.


In Cities of Gold and Glory you can sail the high seas to Golnir's distant ports.
As a warrior, plunder ancient treasures and face your fate in the hall of the death-god Nagil. As a spy, penetrate the labyrinth of lies and sinister secrets of the scheming merchants of Metriciens. As a sorcerer, barter in mysteries, spells and ancient lore with the immortal wizard Estragon.
Amass wealth, honours and power that will take you on voyages to uncharted lands.
This expansion is set in the prosperous kingdom of Golnir, a land made wealthy by its rich agriculture. There are many quests, including slaying a dragon for the Baroness Ravayne, searching for magical artefacts for the wizard Estragon, bringing to justice a murderer on behalf of his victim's ghost, finding the Key of Stars to gain access to a treasure-filled tomb in the Forest of the Forsaken, and making a map of the treacherous northern mountains. The quests in this expansion have a more whimsical fairy-tale nature to them than those in the base game.

--- A note on the newest expansion, from the original authors ---

"We are delighted to see the release of a new instalment in the FABLED LANDS iOS app series by Megara Entertainment. The first part brought our world to life in glorious colour and rich atmosphere, allowing a new generation to immerse themselves in the huge range of adventures that are available in the FABLED
LANDS. Now players can continue those adventures in a whole new kingdom with its own folklore, characters, history, politics and places of danger and mystery".

--- Dave Morris & Jamie Thomson ---

ABOUT THE BASE FABLED LANDS HD GAME (included in this Gold Edition)

Based on the masterpiece gamebook series "Fabled Lands" by legendary authors Dave Morris (Golden Dragon, Dragon Warriors) and Jamie Thomson (Way of the Tiger).

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

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.


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 2D RPG available on iOS .
Great! 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 .
This game feels more immersive and fun than the others games in the genre .

It sounds like you can move between the two, they talk about it in the paragraph underneath ***Important notice***.

Then I am sold. This was the reason I took the first and I expect the second not to suffer from the issues the first had at launch.

So how much will it cost me to buy the first one plus the second as an IAP when it's released? Trying to work out if it's worth me jumping in and giving this a go...
