Video of Ravensword’s New Game Controls

Ravensword_Town_BlacksmithCrescent Moon Games’ upcoming Ravensword game has received a lot of attention from our readers since its original announcement. It is certainly one of the most ambitious iPhone games we’ve seen coming out of such a small studio. Ravensword is an open-envirornment 3D RPG that sports some impressive graphics.
