Editor Al Jackson had this to say about Tales of Illyria Destinies:
We became a fan of indie developers Little Killerz when we first played Tales of Illyria: Fallen Knight. Last year’s release of the sequel, Tales of Illyria II: Beyond the Iron Wall further cemented the high regard we have for them. With this year’s release of Illyria: Destinies we have become convinced that Chad Mannicia and his superb team can do no wrong.
The recently released Illyria: Destinies kept all the things that made the first two Illyria games great: a high fantasy adventure played out via an Oregon Trail travel mechanic fueled by a ton of smart randomly generated encounters. Woven into this mix are excellent combat and loot systems and a compelling overarching story.
Now, with Destinies, which is ostensibly Tales of Illyria 3, Little Killerz has decided to push the envelope further than they ever have before. Not only is Destinies larger and more comprehensive than the previous Illyria titles, but, the lands of Illyria are for the first time an open world. You create your character from scratch, set out on your adventure and do whatever and go wherever you want as you engage in the game’s central missions in whatever order floats you boat. The end result of these changes is that Little Killerz has considerably improved an already superb gaming experience. A superior mobile RPG by any measure,Illyria: Destinies is quite easily the Best Android RPG of 2015.
What do you think of the news? Have you played the latest game yet? How are you enjoying it so far?
The moment you’ve all been waiting for is finally here! Episode 3 of the Tales of Illyria series will be launching in a limited time Beta on August 3rd. The new game — called Tales of Illyria Destinies — is a huge departure from the previous titles in the series!
Tales of Illyria Episode 1 is made it to spot number seven in Hardcore Droid’s 15 best Android RPGs of 2014. We guess that means it’s pretty freakin’ awesome?
Do you agree with the placement? Do you think it belongs higher in the list or lower? Where would you rank Episode Two, if at all?
Hey there, world! I’m Mike Hanson, the guy throwing together a lot of the lore you’ll experience when you play Tales of Illyria. The great people I work with and I are responsible for providing gameplay that is not only engaging but also cohesive. To that end, we study the heck out of source material to build what I call a “working world”. I want to provide a play experience that you not only interact with, but that seems like it could really exist, but let’s get on with it!
Hail beloved Illyrians! We labored long and hard and [finally] the latest version is now live on Google Play. If you own the game already you should see the update available soon. Want to know what’s different?

While our development team is putting the finishing touches on the game, our writers have nothing better to do but twiddle their thumbs (actually, that’s not true we work them very hard).
We’ve announced via social networks over the last couple of weeks that the sequel to Tales of Illyria is coming soon, but that’s the extent of the information we’ve given. It’s high time we shared more about the development status with the community, wouldn’t you agree?
The latest update to Tales of Illyria introduced native language packs for the game. The translations are not spot on, which means it’s possible there are be context issues, but the good news is that now you can enjoy the finely crafted events and story in your language of choice.
