Hardcore Droid Names Destinies as the #1 RPG of Q3 2015

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?

Tales of Illyria Available on the GameStick at Launch

As you know, we previously announced that Tales of Illyria is available for the OUYA Android game console. We are also proud to announce that TOI will be playable on the GameStick when it launches later this month!

In case you’ve never heard of it (and if that’s so you’re probably living under a rock), the GameStick is an ultra-portable Android game console in the same vein as the OUYA. The GameStick is simply an HDMI stick about the size of a USB drive paired with a Bluetooth gamepad. For quick storage, the stick actually slides right into the back of the controller. Obviously, the entire setup allows you to display Android games, media and apps on a big screen TV through an HDMI port.

We’re still working hard to bring Tales of Illyria to other platforms, so please be patient with us. We do have plans to release TOI on iOS, PC and more. We’re also exploring the idea of implementing cloud saving support so that you can continue your playthrough across multiple devices.

As always, thank you for continuing to support our game and the team! Look out for the GameStick coming soon, it’s currently scheduled to launch on Oct 29, 2013.

Tales of Illyria is Now Available for the OUYA!

We promised the game would soon be available for more platforms and yet again we’ve come through! Tales of Illyria is now available for OUYA, the infamous Android game console. If you have one in your possession you can get the game through the OUYA marketplace or by visiting this link.

We still have a lot of work to do, because we’ll be porting the game to even more platforms soon. In the meantime, let us know how you’re enjoying the game so far! Have you had a chance to play TOI on your big screen TV using a MOGA or OUYA console? Feel free to share your experiences with the community down in the comments.

The Sequel is in Development

We have some interesting news to share with you today. Beside the fact that our team is going to be producing regular content for this site, we’d also like to officially announce that the sequel is in development.

Tales of Illyria on tablet

Due to that news, many of you will question whether or not we are going to continue to support the original game in the series- Tales of Illyria. The answer to that is a resounding yes. We will regularly offer updates to the game engine, mechanics and address any bugs or issues that may crop up. In addition, we will also be porting the original game to many different platforms. You can see the evidence of that in our recent announcement of the new MOGA controller support. Ouya compatibility is coming very soon!

We will also continue to add new events to the game over time, and any general changes to the game engine for the second title will be implemented in Tales of Illyria too. That is, if we make changes to the combat mechanics or gameplay it will happen across all of our titles. The engine was designed to be universal in that respect. Please don’t take this to mean we are leaving the original game in the dust, far from it! We are still enthusiastically adding to Tales of Illyria as necessary.

That being said, our very talented team of writers is currently focused on generating content for the sequel. Look out for another post in the coming days that describes the sequel in more detail.

For now, we’d like to thank you very much for your supporting our game and the team. Tales of Illyria has definitely been a success and it is because of fans like you that was possible.
