Emissary of War Hacks Its Way Onto the Apple Store

18-Aug-2011 | News-Press Release

Years of experience at Bioware, working on some of the industry's most celebrated role playing games, convinced Tobyn Manthorpe of the importance of story and character in making a fantasy world come to life. His studio, Cedar Hill Games, now brings that philosophy to the mobile gaming space with one of the most original action role playing games ever seen on the iOS marketplace.

But don't just take our word for it. You can try it first! The opening chapter of Emissary of War is completely free! Begin the adventure and see the brave duo as far as the chapter allows. If you want to see what happens next, you can unlock Chapter 2 for only $2.99. There's no risk to begin the journey, and you only pay if you think it's worth finishing – that's the Cedar Hill commitment to story.

Emissary of War is a character driven action RPG where you must discover the forces trying to undermine a delicate diplomatic situation. You play Ghent, a barbarian emissary sent on a mission of peace that goes horribly wrong. Supported by your alchemist companion, Hassock, you will chop and slash your way through whatever stands between you and unraveling the mystery of your failed mission. One with a mighty sword, one with a sackful of helpful potions – both in great danger.

Built with an original 3D engine, Emissary of War features fully voiced characters and animated cutscenes that guide you through the story's twists and turns. In the game itself, you will need to adjust your tactics as you make progress on your journey – changing how Hassock will support you and deciding which weapon will be best suit Ghent for the next perilous task ahead. Emissary of War is set in an unique universe and brings production values and role playing action to the iOS like no RPG before it.
