I am a solo indie developer making games from my heart. I enjoyed creating this world and I hope you enjoy exploring it:)

Thank you to everyone who took time to leave a review. Positive or negative each one helps me understand how the game works in the real world, and I appreciate it. For a solo dev like me hearing that people enjoy the game is very encouraging:)

WORTH EVERY STAR!!!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Disclaimer: I have edited this review a ton of times because I find something I like each time I play, so it might sound a little off.

This app is amazing! The world is beautiful, the creatures have awesome and unique designs, and unlike most games, it has an actual open world! Plus, the player can go through the story mode, or if that isn’t their thing just free roam. The free roam is great for people like me who enjoy creating stories using the tools the game dev provided. The music adds a cinematic feel to it and can completely change the mood. If you are in the middle of a storm, select the dramatic song and you feel like you are in a life or death situation! I hope this doesn’t sound like a fake review, I genuinely love this game! The craziest thing? It was made by one person! And as a bonus, he actually cares about and enjoys what he does! I saw a response to a different review that he make these games because he enjoys bringing worlds to life, and that gives me a whole new appreciation for this game. I hope you are able to keep making these, they are my favorite apps. You have done a fantastic job and I look forward to the next game.⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Quick update: I just saw a video that featured this game. It’s in “Top 15 High Graphics Offline Games For Android/IOS 2019” by VinIsHere. It shows up from 4:43-5:32. Just figured I’d share that with you🙂

Developer Response ,

😄 this is awesome - thank you so much. It’s why I make games and specifically open worlds. I like exploring nature and using my imagination And I want others to have a place you can do the same. NimiAn Legends feels like it’s a real place to me in some ways and I am always trying to learn better ways to bring it to life. Right now I’m working on a new world that’s a lot larger and I hope to bring you an even more massive natural world to explore soon. Vandgels and BrightRidge are two places that have been in my head since I was a kid and it’s a lot of fun to finally see these characters in an actual game. Your spirited feedback and five star review also really support me. As you said I’m one person so I also am boosted when people say kind things and it means a lot to me that the experience meant something positive to you:) I will keep it up!

First off let me start off by saying that this game is absolutely one of the most visually stunning games I’ve ever laid eyes on for a mobile game. I will say that the developer has shown great care and love to the scenery the characters in the story and some really great plot twists. I fully support your development of these games and of any future endeavors you might undertake. I will say that I am a person who does not write many reviews about games that I play because I play so many it’s not worth it for me, however coming across this title I knew that I had to speak up because I could absolutely tell the amount of effort put into this game. I have recently downloaded another title by this developer and look forward to checking it out as well. Thank you very much for putting the effort into this as you have.

Horrible controls

I am at a loss on the great reviews for this game. Perhaps it does not work correctly with the newest ipads? I am using an ipad pro with 256gb of storage, over half of which is free and I had no other programs open. My experience with this and the prior Nimean game is that the controls are utterly horrible. Camera swings about wildly when you try and move your character and constantly works in too close. Changing control and view settings did not help. Game does not seem to be designed for a touch screen and there is no onscreen joypad appearing even when I select that option. Simply agonizing to try and make the character do anything. Also, no audio speech, just a compressed squealy babble when characters talk - text does appear at the bottom of the screen but I tend to miss it - just weird as speech bubbles do appear most of the time when characters talk - however there are no words in the bubbles. Also difficult to tell who is speaking and who they are speaking to due to camera jumping around and getting too close in. There may be a great experience here, but I’ll never know it. Life is too short. There are lots of great games out there that work properly - better to play one of those than struggle with this. Oh well.
