Elder Sign: Omens | Published 18 November 2011


He asked questions about the gods, and whether they danced often upon Lerion; but the farmer and his wife would only make the Elder Sign and tell him the way to Nir and Ulthar.
  
–H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Gates have opened within the Arkham museum, connecting our world to realms beyond, and thousands of people have already begun their journeys through these portals in search of powerful Elder Signs. Now, some have returned, forever altered by their experiences…

Early investigators offer their reports

Fans everywhere are heaping their praise on Elder Sign: Omens, the digital application that recreates the chilling experience of the popular Elder Sign dice game for your Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, or Mac OS X device. We are pleased to share the following reviews:

  • Touch Arcade (4.5 of 5 stars). “Fantasy Flight has done a fantastic job.”
  • Gamezebo (4.5 of 5 stars). “The presentation here, like most of Fantasy Flight’s productions, is beyond top notch.”
  • Editor’s Choice at 148apps.com (4.5 of 5 stars). “You’d have to be insane to pass this up.”
  • iPadboardgames rates Elder Sign: Omens a “very solid” 9 out of 10 stars. “High production values, wonderful atmospheric music, gorgeous visuals, and a comprehensive tutorial.”
  • Game of the Week at G4TV.com. “This is an absolutely brilliant translation of a tabletop game.”
  • iBirdy.com (4.5 of 5 stars). “Gorgeous artworks, soundtrack that adds to the unsettling atmosphere, outstanding tutorial videos and great but hard gameplay make this game amazing.”
  • Pocket Gamer (Silver Award). “We strongly recommend you give it a chance.”
  • Elder Sign: Omens also earned 3 of 4 stars on Board Game Geek where Elder Sign has floated on the site’s The Hotness list since June. “A great example of a non-linear transition of a board game to iOS.”

 I devoured this game like Azathoth devours investigators!  This game is awesome and I hope and pray more Great Old Ones appear in the near future.  I own most of the AH products and just bought MoM in October, so when I got my new HTC Merge in November (my first Android device) I was elated to see this game.  Keep making ports of your games to the digital world and I will gladly buy them!

 Does anyone know if this works on the kindle fire or nook tablet? I played on my friends iPad and it was great, but I was thinking of getting a nook or kindle if i can utilize games like this on it. Still fun on the iPhone regardless! Great game.

 Great game. But really disappointed ending when you finally play the game through. "great game. You win" doesn't really feel as a reward in any way >:/ NO reason at all to play it through again which is too bad. Could have been a great game.

OK i just playtested Elder Sign Omens on Samsung i9000 Galaxy S.

Impressions:

Works good but a bit slower loading missions than i expected.                                               (7)

Nice graphic and good music theme to enhance atmosphere of game.                                (9)

Interesting gameplay with good replay value, still this game need more ancient ones .     (8)

So my final score is 8 (or 4 stars), i recommend this game to all who love  H. P. Lovecraft's work and games based on it.

And with some update and dlc this game would get max rating from me .
