Ossian Studios is an excellent RPG studio, creating great add-on adventures for the original Neverwinter Nights and NWN2, and most recently the iPad specific RPG The Shadow Sun. I loved the game, and now it is on sale for the first time, and Ossian has put out a call for testers of an open beta for an Android port!
The Shadow Sun gets a major Update which offers bug fixes and significant improvements, as well as adding a pet to the mix! Here is the update summary:
- Now adventure with a faithful dog companion!
- New improved camera.
- New app icon.
- Fixed bug where Zehira did not give the Spider Amulet with high approval.
- Fixed (with an alternate plugin) a rare crash after Unity logo and during character creation.
- Minor area fixes and game tweaks.
Finally, back when they announced The Shadow Sun, Ossian noted the possibility of the game coming to Android, and now they are making good on that! Unlike the iOS platform which is relatively easy to test, for Android there are a myriad number of devices and platforms. Whereas some games limit the supported device set significantly, Ossian has sought to make The Shadow Sun as widely playable as possible.
So they have put out an open beta call to all Android RPG gamers who would like to test a short beta demo on their device. Anyone interested can sign up for this on the Ossian forums.
As of right now, there are 14 pages of responses as invites for The Shadow Sun have been picked up on PocketGamer and Reddit … but Ossian are working through all of the requests to send out invites – all you need is a suitable device and a Google+ to access Google play, where the beta demo is hosted.
