Elder Sign: Omens | Published 03 November 2011

Likewise are there dread survivals of things older and more potent than man; things that have blasphemously straggled down through the aeons to ages never meant for them; monstrous entities that have lain sleeping endlessly in incredible crypts and remote caverns, outside the laws of reason and causation, and ready to be waked by such blasphemers as shall know their dark forbidden signs and furtive passwords.
      – H.P. Lovecraft and William Lumley, "The Diary of Alonzo Typer"

Earlier this week, we warned you of horrifying otherworldly gates opening in the vicinity of iPhone and iPod touch owners, drawing them into other worlds for hours on end. Now, this phenomenon has spread! Elder Sign: Omens, the digital application based on Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson’s popular dice game, is now available for your Android, iPad, and Mac OS X device (in addition to your iPhone and iPod touch). Click the applicable link below to begin your download and experience the horrors of the museum.

Pick your platform

Elder Sign: Omens allows players to build the perfect team of up to four intrepid investigators as they work to prevent the emergence of Azathoth, the demon god of the unnamable void. His arrival will surely spell the end of human existence, but if you can use your investigators’ skills wisely, you’ll stave off destruction. All sixteen of Elder Sign’s unique investigators stand ready to face these otherworldly horrors; control any number of them in your own solo game, or “pass and play” with your friends. To whet your appetite, we’ve put together this brief video overview:

Added challenges

But remember, 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:

  • Arguably the most powerful Ancient One in Lovecraft’s Mythos, Azathoth’s awesome power is indisputable. This infinitely destructive deity is therefore the focal point of Elder Sign: Omens, and the only available Ancient One.
  • 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.

Can you stand against the impending arrival of Azathoth? Download Elder Sign: Omens today!

Elder Sign: Omens is a digital device application that lets you recreate the horrifying tension of Elder Sign wherever you go. Pass and play with up to three of your friends, or try to best your previous attempts with the detailed scoring system. With Elder Sign: Omens, there’s no escaping the horrors of the Ancient Ones.

 I'm downloading ES:O to my Android phone as I type this, but ES:O is not listed on the Apple App Store, so I can't download it to my laptop. I hope that gets fixed soon.

The write up on the Android Market says that there is additional download on first execution and it takes 150MB of storage. Does anyone know if this goes to the SD memory card or does it use internal phone memory?

 If I try to buy it through the shop, it says item not found.  If I try through a browser, it says not compatible with my phone (Galaxy).  What's going on?
