This is a nice surprise. 9th Dawn has been one of those Android exclusives I've wished was on iOS so I could give it a go. It's got a 4.7/5 rating on Google Play with over 600 votes. Open wolrd RPG gaming here I come; this is the most promising game I've seen in a long time (fingers crossed).

Yep, this is added to my mental cart for tonight! It really does look like an homage to Ultima (however without the turned based combat, but the more fast paced combat looks fun), which in my opinion is one of the greatest RPG series to never get reboot! I look forward to buying and playing this later tonight!

This had better do the iPad's screen justice.

Finally !

This is the game i've been after for ages. I mean open-world - check, not online multiplayer - check, dual stick controls - check.

Loving the look of this so far ! I'm glad combat isnt turn based, this reminds me of the gameboy version of Ultima which was more 'arcadey' when it came to combat.

I just said this would be a quiet night of releases for me but this ones an instant purchase. Roll on 12am !!

Nope. It's a large open-world RPG with absolutely no loot whatsoever. Or NPCs. Or enemies.

It's one big existential LMoE simulator. >_>

9th Dawn is the result of a failed Kickstarted attempt that was promised only $471 (4% of $10,000 request) but the developers trucked on and made the game anyway. I always think it's admirable to see games that didn't get funded be made anyway I assume because the developer is passionate enough to just do it anyway. Since release on Android it's even been updated with (free) expansion content so by their bootstraps it seems to have been successful.
