    Holy crap.

    Porting FF1 and 2 over, and a handful of 2D strategy and Tower Defense games is one thing, but dang, they're really pushing their iPhone dev team with this one.

    Hope it plays well, because it looks gorgeous.

    Should be released by tomorrow.

    Yikes. I knew the devs said it would be out "soon". But not this soon. Surprisingly little hype has been put out for this game. Regardless, I'm plunking down my $15.

    Thanks for the heads up. Played a short bit of it. Pretty neat, so far. Classic Square RPG feel to the interface and battle system. Controls great. Gorgeous graphics for the platform. Music's pretty good, if not wholly memorable at this point. Neat character progression system.

    Man, Escher's a total jerk. That's actually kinda refreshing, in a way.
