Description
The acclaimed game of magical storytelling is now on iPhone! King of Dragon Pass blends interactive stories and resource management into an epic saga of conflict, magic, and community. The game is set in Glorantha (the world of the games HeroQuest and RuneQuest). It’s immensely replayable, thanks to nearly 500 interactive scenes and two objectives. Short episodes and automatic saving mean you can play even when you only have a minute or two. The built-in saga keeps track of the story for you. And advisors with distinctive personalities help you track your cows.The gorgeous hand-painted artwork won Best Visual Arts at the second annual Independent Games Festival.Early reviews:• It's like they took the best parts of Civilization games and combined them with the best part of Choose Your Own Adventure style game books. [Touch Arcade]Playtesters say:• What an addicting game!• Above all, KoDP on iOS is *fun*. The game is ideally suited to the portable platform… I can pull it up and play a couple seasons when I'm waiting in line or standing on a train platform.• The game is completely brilliant, by the way — it fits the iOS superbly… it's quite a bit deeper (in a good way) then the bulk of the Appstore games out there, while still fitting the 'bite size' play session that you need.• A fantastic game, and so far it feels like it is darn near perfectly designed for the platform. The story and characters are so expertly written that I am actually sad that the content is finite and that at some point, no matter how long I stall, I'll begin retreading ground.• I was absolutely gobsmacked at the level and depth and complexity in the game. I can honestly say I have never seen a game with such attention to detail and background,except for something like World of Warcraft or the like! Expand ▼
