Josh Presseisen from Crescent Moon Games emailed us a heads up this morning of their 3D action RPG set for release sometime in September. Ravensword: The Fallen King has been designed with the iPhone 3GS in mind because of the high polygon count, but will be tuned to also run on previous-generation devices at lower frame rates and without as much graphical eye candy. Reluctant to give too much away, Presseisen compared the game to both Oblivion and Zelda: Twilight Princess for the Wii.

Ravensword_Graveyard-1

Ravensword is said to have an open environment with a main quest line that will take anywhere from 3 to 6 hours to complete, along with a hefty amount of side quests to also keep you occupied. What I'll be interested in seeing is how extensive the side quests in Ravensword are, because I had much more fun just fooling around in the open game world of Oblivion than playing the comparatively short main quest line.

Take a look at these screen shots and concept art, also the developers are collecting ideas for the game in their thread on our forums. If you'd like to see something added or have other suggestions, don't hesitate to post them.

    If you had fun fooling around in Oblivion, you would LOVE TES3: Morrowind, Hodapp.

    Basically TES4: Oblivion is a stripped down version of Morrowind with prettier graphics.

    • Flashbang99

      combat in morrowind sucks though =/

      • Yagami_Light

        Not as bad as combat in Oblivion though. Having enemies level with you takes away the entire point of the game. Instead of natural progression of enemies like Morrowind and Daggerfall had, they just cheaped it out and made enemy strength correlate directly to your skill. I'd rather get my *** kicked for the first couple of days as I level up that just have my hand held throughout the game.

    Holy iphone , those screenshots just made me faint.
    The iphone keeps surprising more with every day passing :D

    This looks beautiful and I'll buy it day one

    But hey, developers! The JUMP and ATTACK buttons really don't need to be so huge. Make them smaller!

  • jonathan

    Also making them transparent wouldn't hurt.

    Funny how some big companies like EA, BioWare etc. are making iPhone crap 2D games, small game studios like the Crescent Moon Games are making AAA 3D high quality games! Shame on you monsters of game industry. Long live to the small enthusiast!

    Looks good! I still want something similar to Baldur's Gate, but this will satisfy in the meantime.

    • Yagami_Light

      Me too. Although, if they were going to port the original Baldur's Gate game, it would probably be around a 1.5 gig game. That game was originally released on 6 cds, wasn't it? I wouldn't mind though. I've got an 8 gig iPhone and an 8 gig iPod touch.

      BG1 = ~1.6
      BG Tales of the Sword Coast = ~500
      BG Shadows of Amn = ~2.5
      BG Throne of Bhaal = ~800
      ----------------
      ~5.4 gigs.

      I'd gladly sacrifice my touch for having these amazing games.

    Wow! I must say that looks hot! I was afraid it was a "3GS only title." But i'm fine with a bit worse graphics on my 1G touch. As long as it's like oblivian, I'm happy. :D

    this adds to my list of LiveFire, Dexter, Sandstorm, Gangstar, NFS: Shift, and there's probably more.

    It's like how you compare the early games on many handhelds to the later games. Say the psp's Metal Gear Acid to Metal Gear Portable ops. As companies get used to programming for the format the better the games will become.

  • Peripatetic

    Major CON: only 3-6 hour main quest line?!?!

    That's WAY too short! For something this involved (and potentially expensive), the main quest line should be a minimum of 10-20 hours (preferably 15-25 or 20-30) and side quests should add another 30-60 hours at least.

    3-6 plus say, oh, 10 hours or so of side quests is disappointingly brief.

      This game isn't going to cost $60.00 though....

    If you've ever played ES:IV, you'd know that the main story line takes about ... Two hours to complete from start to finish. What makes that game epic though is the fact that side missions and exploring can tack on an additional 100 hours. I hope this is what they're referring to. Comparing this to ES:IV is going to piss a lot of people off if it isn't great though. Never set your expectations that high...

    Only reason we compared it to those two games is because it has similar ideas
    of gameplay and similar style - we are not saying that it is as good as those games which had HUGE budgets! Our game is like a mini version of those two games. Yes the side quests and mini games in our game will probably take up most of the gameplay and the actual story being less lengthy.

    An RPG of this quality might encouraged the big players to bring versions of their rpgs to iPhone. Remember there has been an Elder Scrolls mobile game before.
