Knights of the Pen and Paper

Saw this on Kotaku last night... looks very cool.

And the Kotaku review here:

According to Behold Studio's twitter, it should be out on iOS very soon (dependent on Apple review).

Niiiiiice. Great graphics and chiptune with a unique twist on the RPG-ing. Looks like a must-buy

On sunday they wrote on their facebook page: "In a plus note, the iOS and PC/Mac versions are coming real soon (hoping for a release this week)."
Shouldn't be too long now.

RPG type game. Thematically, you're a bunch of people playing a classic RPG (think Dungeons and Dragons) at a table with the dungeon master (who controls the difficulty of encounters, etc... ) Your team is built from common stereotypes (nerd, business man, hipster, etc... ) who are each roleplaying a class. Each stereotypical character has some passive ability (eg: the girl pays less at shops), and then is combined with your class (I saw several; at least 5+), which has unique abilities.

What makes this interesting to me is that you get to control the the difficulty of the encounters. You can add more enemies to a fight, or subtract enemies to make it easier -- up to you! Presumably, the more difficult you make the encounter, the better loot/score/something you get.

I got this from like 2-3 minutes of playing, but I really like what I'm seeing so far. Had a few issues on my Galaxy Nexus with text getting cut off, but I imagine the iOS version is a bit more polished. Beautiful pixel art and a really unique theme!
