I'm ridiculously excited for this! One question I have... Will the app function purely as a Keeper-bot? Or will there be some nice thematic options the app provides as well... like sound effects/music/possible voice over in some instances, etc? I typically game with my bluetooth speakers pumping out good mood music (or just some good tunes) to really enhance the gaming experience.

While I have a playlist for "spooky" games like MoM, it'd be cool if the App had its own means to create ambiance!

The Road to Legend app for Descent includes ambient sound for scenarios. There was voice over but it was limited to the campaign intros. Everything else was read by players.

Yeah, I'd totally be ok with that. I was just thinking maybe the prologue could have voice-over. Some decent ambient music and sound effects when monsters drop, events happen, locks open, etc.

Just a hope... can't wait for this!

Where can I get some more info about the app? I guess there is no love for Windows Mobile (or even better UWP)? If its only iOS/Android app then I'll have to skip this one just like XCOM...

It's probably on steam/windows like Descent.

Yeah, I played the new Descent with the Steam app running on a Windows laptop connected to a 26" LCD TV. It worked great.

Please tell me you still had one person reading the text out loud. Cos just having everyone silently reading the screen would be a bit weird. goo

The intro part was narrated for us, but yes, the person closest to the TV was reading off the information. I was very apprehensive about the app initially but found it to be an excellent addition to the game. In addition, there was ambient noise provided while in the city (I think it was people chattering) to keep things thematic.

Maybe the Mansions app will randomly blast out scary noises or howling at high volume to keep you stressed.

I'm hoping this app is fully narrated to be honest.

Road to Legend isn't, so don't get your hopes up.
