The Legend of Equip Pants is a Zelda-like episodic adventure RPG where instead of equipping and upgrading a sword, you have to equip and upgrade your pants. In fact, the entire universe revolves around pants, because why not? Visit the Pantsmith. Fear evil creatures living in Pantsylvania. Enjoy epic pants puns. The game's first three episodes are coming soon. I've broken the RPG elements down into delicious, pint-sized episodes so they can be consumed without the confusion, head spins, and frequent breaks often associated with giant servings of RPG content. My goal is to deliver 20 minutes of mostly self-contained fun in each episode.
I've submitted The Legend of Equip > Pants to Apple for approval! I've got lots of news to catch up on. Here's some updates about my progress, the game's cost and in-app purchases, as well as an Episode 1 story teaser.

I've got a lot of exciting news to catch up on! I've been hard at work on the iOS version of my game, which will release first... because of that focus to finish I'm behind on my updates here. Facebook and Chrome releases will come next for folks on Win/Mac/Linux.
☑ Episode 1 secrets, accomplishments, and play testing done!
☑ Episode 2 testing done!
☑ iOS porting and device resolution independence done!
☑ iOS platform payment integration done!
I submitted to Apple yesterday (Wed, Nov 6)!
So now I sit here in the Inn of the Pantsing Pony waiting for approval. ;)
That's me over there on the left. I've put myself into the game.
You will be able to find me in the Inn in Episode 1.
The game will be free to play. I've decided to put in some intentionally amusing (I hope!) In-App Purchase possibilities instead of charge for the game. I think a free install will make the game more accessible and encourage more people to try it out. You will be able to purchase me drinks at the Inn, and there is also a story choice that can be unlocked.
The iOS launch version of the game will have two episodes. This is only the beginning of the journey. I will need players to join me on my quest to release more episodes, and the nature of the episodes will evolve over time based on your feedback.
Thanks for reading!
