Asharp LLC, makers of King of Dragon Pass for iOS, have just released a sequel game set in the mythical land of Glorantha.
From the website
The Golden City lies under a great sheet of ice. Your ancestors rode free, looking for a new home. It took three hundred years, but your clan finally settled here, in the valley where you hope to find your gods, recruit help from spirits, and win respect from your fellow Riders. Can you protect your people and claim your destiny when you re beset by wizards, lizards, and worse, your barbaric neighbors, the Orlanthi?
Six Ages: Ride Like The Wind, the spiritual successor to cult hit King of Dragon Pass, combines interactive fiction and turn-based strategy to immerse you in a hostile, blood-soaked land governed by myth and cursed with wonders. Uncover the secrets of the valley, battle ancient enemies, and meet the gods, all while protecting your people and raiding your neighbors cows. Hundreds of scenes unfurl, accompanied by gorgeous artwork and backed by a clan simulation that makes every game unique. You ll be faced with hard choices, but you ll get advice to follow or ignore although your advisors have their own agendas.
This game has everything you loved about King of Dragon Pass, story, mythology, war, exploration, resource management, and politics, with additions that make it feel so much more polished. Important information like your clan's mood, warriors, and omens/promises for the year are accessible right in the menu, making planning much easier. Combat is more dynamic and interactive, giving you more control over your warriors without bogging down the game or losing the feeling that every decision you make impacts hundreds of people. The map is significantly larger than KODP's, and while exploring, you can set objectives, adding to the replayability. There are many feature differences and changes, but those are some of my favorites. Without spoilers, the game also intersects in some very interesting and unexpected ways with the original, making it less a sequel, and more of a companion.
In addition to information about the game, the website also includes resources for playing the game, trailers, and much more.Six Ages: Ride like the Wind on the App store
