It's hands down my favorite iOS game.
If you love old school SF games like Star Frontiers, you have GOT to check this game out.
It's an iPhone (maybe Android too?) game that simulates an old-school, SF dungeon crawl, tabletop roleplaying experience.
Which sounds REALLY interesting.

"The sky's the limit!"

Sadly, it was near closing time, so I didn't get to finish.
By the staff was impressed...and so was I!
This is one of the coolest modern mythologies I've ever read, and it was all developed by homeless children living in Miami (and elsewhere) almost 20 years ago. I wonder how these children turned out.
Brief Summary: God fled the kingdom of Heaven (and reality) when demons stormed and destroyed his palace, and angels operate out of a camp they set up in the Everglades, battling evil, demonic forces of not just Satan, but an entity far more dangerous and twisted: Bloody Mary.
Here is a powerful story of children coping with the madness of their situation through a tradition of folklore. According to an article in the Miami New Times from 2013, Disney purchased the rights to this story in 2000 with Clive Barker as a producer, but a movie version of "Bloody Mary" never manifested from it.
It kicks the asses of every professionally written modern mythology I've ever read.
It's just heartbreaking that it's the product of such tragic childhoods though.
But it shows just how different Disney really is from how so many people ignorantly assume it is that it not only bought the rights to this story, but worked with Clive Barker to produce it too.
I hope somebody eventually does make a movie based on this mythology that's worthy of its greatness.
Anyone have suggestions for him?
