Hi, Mark Damon Hughes here.

I write neat little strategy and role-playing games for the iPhone.

I also help other people write their apps for the iPhone; if you need a contractor, I can solve any problem for you.

Perilar Perilar Perilar

I’d been talking for a while about doing a little tiny RPG, before finishing Nexus Worlds (I have at least a month, maybe two, left to do on Nexus… it’s still coming!). So I adapted my last Java-based game, Perilar, for the iPhone, and it turned out great!

The tiny display of the original Java Perilar didn’t make a lot of sense on the desktop, but it was necessary for the gameplay. The new iPhone version just works perfectly. Streamlining the already simple interface and gameplay of Perilar down to even fewer elements made it even better.

Perilar is my tribute to the classic computer role-playing games of my youth, most importantly Ultima I: The First Age of Darkness and Ultima II: The Revenge of the Enchantress, for my money the best games ever made. The giant world-, time-, and space-spanning quests, the insanely hard difficulty, the final showdowns with Mondain and Minax. I can’t put a big cloth map in the App Store, but in every other way, this is my “Ultima-like”.

I just submitted it to the App Store, and it should be released on Oct 13th, if all goes well.
