Dungeons & Dragons: Lords of Waterdeep (By Playdek)

Quote:
Kotaku reports Dungeons & Dragons: Lords of Waterdeep has two to five players battling for control of the titular city, one of the major locations of the Forgotten realms setting.

Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons publishing and licensing head Liz Schuh said Playdek was the obvious choice to bring the best-selling boardgame to life on tablets.

“Their experience shipping titles like Ascension and Agricola prove they know how to bring board games to life on the tablet. From a solid tutorial experience to intuitive design for asynchronous and pass-and-play gameplay to creating a fun achievements system, their passion for the original game will mean a faithful rendition of Lords of Waterdeep, optimised for tablet play,” she said.

The only bad thing with Playdek is that they rarely fix bugs once an app is out, sadly. And even getting a reply back, barring automated response, is next to impossible.

I can't speak to their customer service, but the games they make are flawless. What bug are you referring to? I've played several thousand games of Ascension and don't recall ever experiencing a crash or having rules not enforced. I'm not saying there are none, I just haven't see one. What bugs have you seen, I'm genuinely curious?

It's due out this month! I am really looking forward to it. I own the board game and it is one of my favorites. But I'm also a little hesitant. To be honest I have pretty much stopped playing board games on my iOS devices. I have found that they tend to burn me out on the games and then I don't want to play them at all, real world or not. There's something to be said for NOT playing a game constantly. Still, I will buy this and hope it doesn't kill the magic for me….

I will probably not play asynch at all. Asynch is the worst as far as burning me out is concerned. There is live play, so I will take advantage of that.

yeah, well, one more disapointment in the likes of ultima, d&d arena, dungeonhunter 3 etc, and i wont buy another ios game unless it clearly states it is created by an indie or team of indies.

enough is enough of slaughtering good concepts for pure greed. I'll keep the faith up one last time though

Playdek started as an indie company and through making great games became a big developer. Or are company's only cool if they are indie and release crappy games and never make money.
