The tense excitement of Elder Sign is now available for your computer! Elder Sign: Omens places you in control of up to four intrepid investigators, as they fight to keep all-powerful Ancient Ones from invading our world through a museum’s arcane exhibits!
*Build a team of unique investigators*
*Explore an ever-changing museum*
*Face challenging arcane tasks*
*Save the world from absolute destruction*
*Expand the horror with two exciting in-app purchases*
Can you stand against the impending arrival of a malevolent Ancient One?
While Elder Sign: Omens brilliantly conveys the spirit of the Elder Sign dice game, a few noteworthy differences were adopted to optimize the mobile play experience:
-A limited number of available Ancient Ones streamlines the game play experience while offering adjustable levels of difficulty. Face Yig in normal mode, Azathoth or Tsathoggua in hard mode, or Cthulhu or Ithaqua in very hard mode (in-app purchases required to face Cthulhu and Ithaqua).
-A number of subtle changes increase the peril of defending humanity. For example, the random negative effects drawn every midnight are more challenging, and the frequency of “no effect” results has been decreased. Monsters have likewise been altered to make them more difficult.
-Finally, there are no Ally cards in Elder Sign: Omens, which further streamlines play while increasing the overall challenge.
Fixed bug allowing you to select the same investigator multiple times.
Fixed a problem with scoreboard entry.
Cleaned up startup resolution code to prevent multiple resolution switches.

Very fun - I'd like to ask for one feature. I want to be able to 'save and quit', so that I can quit at any point in the middle of the game and come back to where I was. Otherwise, I have to start and finish the game in one go, which takes about two hours or so. And it is a lot of time. When I want to leave the game temporarily, I could minimize the game, of course. But this works only if I don't have to turn the mac off. Also, even when I do minimize it, I can't mute the sound of the game separately, so that (creepy) music will always be in the background if I do not wish to mute the whole computer. Anyways, I enjoyed the game a lot.
No longer works. - After downloading the latest update, Elder Signs no longer works on my Macbook Pro. I start it up and all I get is a blank screen, though I can hear the music. It used to work fine, but, for some reason, now it doesn't. Really bummed because I liked this game.
