- fights, quests, dungeons
- many monsters and even more loot!
- bard songs

Grab it, test it, review it - enjoy it!

Can't wait, we need more old style CRPGs on the market. Shame to have to wait months for the full version but thanks for the advanced lite.

Looks fantastic!

I think this is a perfect genre for conversion to smart phones.

Update: The game is in review since yesterday. If all goes well, you can start sharpening your swords.

So cool!
I grew up with Bards Tale, Pool Of Radiance, Dungeon Master and all this stuff. Really looking forward to it.
And my sword is always sharp & pointy, btw.


But why is the full vers "a few months" later? o_0



P.S.: Just noticed the devs are from Germany, not far from the place I live. Will support them auf jeden Fall.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Three Reasons:

1. I have no idea how many people will buy and enjoy the full version. The Lite Version is supposed to give me some indication for that, although the download numbers will be much higher for the Lite Version is free.

2. You will have the opportunity to influence the final game by giving feedback. Although the final ruleset is planned already, I am of course looking for new inspiration.

3. My graphic designer simply isn't that fast :-) I plan another 40-50 creature pictures, and they still have to be drawn...

Greetings and regards

Agreed. I've been waiting for a decent game in this genre from the App Store, but it just doesn't seem very popular.

I think the thread title is very misleading, though. I thought it was an official port when I first opened the thread.
