Shadow Sun looks seriously impressive

The first screenshots for upcoming Western-style RPG Shadow Sun have been released, and they look mightily impressive. At first you’ll wonder what I’m talking about, because the screens without context don’t look all that hot. 

That’s when I tell you this is an iPhone game. 

Shadow Sun aims to provide an entire Western RPG experience on the iPhone, a goal that one can only applaud for its sense of ambition. Of course, controls are going to be the real issue with this game, but if Ossian Studios is committed to gameplay as much as it is to visuals, this could definitely be a portable game to keep an eye on.
