Dungeons and Dragons has been around since before gaming hit it big in the early 1980′s and ever since then, companies have been after that license and, with various levels of success, been able to bring a reasonable facsimile of the game to fans. The problem with the previous attempts at a D&D game is they were lacking in the essence of the license, they never got the feel down, that feeling of playing with friends and imagining the adventure. That is until now.
Behold Studios have captured the essence, the raw feel, of being in a D&D session without the sweaty, smelly, friends rubbing elbows with you and having to wait for the Dungeon Master or a fellow adventurer to get back from a bathroom break. The graphics, as you can see in the pics, are squarely placed in the pixel art area of gaming. As they used to say, the edges are so sharp they could put out an eye if you aren’t careful (quick, what generation of gaming was that term used the most in?).
Knights of Pen and Paper is one of the best RPG’s I have played so far on Android, and it is one of the simplest. My review will be up later this week but don’t wait, grab a goblet of Ale, leave your dice in the drawer and load up Knights of Pen and Paper on your Android or iOS device and begin the adventure in ernest.
