The Ensign

“The Ensign” is developed by Amirali Rajan. It is normally $0.99 and it is free for a limited time. It does not contain in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch and requires iOS 7.0 or later.

Have to survive. The war’s not over.

The Ensign is a prequel to the critically acclaimed experience: A Dark Room.

This game is extremely difficult. Brutally difficult. Throw your device across the room difficult. You have been warned, human. Death awaits.

Critical Acclaim:

“The Ensign is a fantastically weird and wonderful RPG that has plenty going for it, but only if you have the time and patience to peel away the multiple layers. 4.5 out of 5 stars” – 148Apps

“The Ensign will create dedicated players as you’ll overcome the frustration with confidence, which in turn will lead to longer gameplay sessions. The Ensign is truly a game of its own, carrying much of the same qualities of A Dark Room which allowed this simple text-based game to be enjoyable. 8.5 out of 10 stars” – Game Mob

“Like A Dark Room, The Ensign is difficult to talk about without spoiling the sense of discovery as you unlock its secrets, but what I can do is tell you that the longer you play it, and the farther you get, the more impressive the world building becomes. It takes what seems like a fairly straight-forward objective (find this thing, try not to die) and then slowly unfolds its narrative and choices around you in surprising ways. 5 out of 5 stars” – JayIsGames

“It is full of revelations about the player character and the world it inhabits and, as such, becomes impossible to discuss at length without trading in awe-sapping spoilers.” – Pocket Tactics

“The Ensign is also a game of discovery—this is clearest when exploring the ASCII-based map steadily, a step at a time, praying for an abandoned house to relieve your struggle. The difference between it and A Dark Room is that it’s marked by two of the core tenets of games like Dark Souls: solitude and desperation.” – Kill Screen

– Natural date and time parsing
No awkward date pickers nor rigid date and time format to follow. Set due date and time by typing what is natural to you.*

“4pm” works just as fine as “4:00 PM” or “16:00”, and “Aug 22” works as well as “22 August” or “8/22”. Relative dates like “in 20 mins” or “in 6 months” work too.

Some examples:

– “Wish Sally happy birthday on Aug 22 at 8 AM”

Vitamins before bed each night? Pay rent every 2 weeks on Monday? Submit a report on the last weekday of the month? Yup.

Due supports over-the-air sync through iCloud or Dropbox. Create a reminder on your Mac and it will be there on your iPhone and iPad.**

**Due must be launched for sync to take place. Sync on iOS requires Due for iOS (sold separately).

– Drag and drop to create reminders
Create reminders by dragging emails, calendar events, text, links and more to Due.

– Share reminders with drag and drop, or copy and paste

– Optional Menu Bar, dockless operation
Run Due directly from your menu bar, badge it with unattended alerts, and take Due off your Dock if you like.

– Assignable alert sounds
Assign distinctive alert sound for each reminder; louder and longer ones for important reminders, and subtler ones for less critical reminders.

– Undo and Redo
Relax, it’s okay to make mistakes.

– Take control of your notifications
Customize how notifications behave—whether they display a notification, play a sound, bounces the icon or highlights the icon in the menu bar—when reminders and timers become due.

If you’re on OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion, you can choose between Notification Center or Growl. If you have Growl installed (sold separately), you can also customize how notifications look with themes.
