Loving it so far!

But it's also a testament of my lack of knowledge of anything non-Orlanthi and non 3rd age! I am actually still trying to figure out when it is taking place ^^

The Storm Age is my guess.

Well I had the impression that it was taking place during history, so after creation of Time and the Storm Age...but then I checked the "Dating the God Time" insert from GTG1 p125, and "the Ice covers Dara Happa" event is dated 109,201 YS, before the dawn, so you may well be right. The next entry says "The World is Destroyed" so...it bodes well :)

Loving all the Hyaloring lore, gods & myths.  How much of this is new vs dug out from old essays & Stafford Library materials?

The whole game is dug up from the Stafford Library. As in KoDP, we had to create new myths, but we used existing material whenever possible.

Will there mayhap be an Android version sometime in the future?

The developers have said they're looking at other platforms for the future. It doesn't help your question, but they've just announced a partnership to develop Windows and MacOS versions.

Although I still would very much like an Android version, I'll look into the Windows one when it comes out.  Thank you!

After seeing the hunt image below and the stats  for a T-Rex in Runequest Glorantha Bestiary, I say good luck sending 4 swords and 3 bows to hunt it. :D

It doesn't really matter, since I can never actually track the stupid thing in the first place to get my fighters eaten.

The next game in the series, "Lights Going Out", is under way - https://blog.sixages.com/index.php/2018/09/06/chapter-two/

 

Man, it's gonna be fun being a Hyaloring in the Great Darkness. Or a Berennethtelli, I guess? You know, that makes me think it would be cool to make a clan in Heroquest with the Clan Questionnaire modeled after your game of Six Ages. With the clan's wyter being one of your favorite members of the ring and stuff like that.

It is true, even if the market share is much bigger. Games that aren't "freemium" are much harder to sell on Android, people are reluctant to pay for games. And the market is also extremely fragmented so it is hard to make a game that works on the huge amount of models and operative system versions that exist.

Six Ages was game of the day on Wednesday on the App Store!

Just noticed it, a bit late. At least it was here in the UK anyway. Check out the link for their write up on it.
