Ossian Studios – which includes talents such as the developer of Neverwinter Nights 2: Mysteries of Westgate and former Bioware producer on Baldur’s Gate 2: Throne of Bhaal (also the CEO) – have released the “Western RPG iOS gamers have been waiting for” in The Shadow Sun.
The universal app can be downloaded here. The Shadow Sun promises to be a 10-15 hour long experience for the mobile platform, within which you can explore over 70 unique areas holding quests that can be completed a myriad of different ways. It also features real-time combat, over 200 items, treasures and hidden secrets, and multiple NPC dialogue options which open up depending on your decisions made up to the relevant encounter. It’s a premium release priced at $8.49, but if it delivers, that price tag might be worth it for potentially the best Western RPG title on the iPhone/iPad.
