Summary

From the publisher's web site:

Elder Sign: Omens is an application for your iOS, Mac OS X, or Android device that delivers the tense excitement of Richard Launius and Kevin Wilson’s popular dice game to a digital medium. Its detailed, intuitive interface will have you investigating in minutes, while its deep and engaging gameplay provides countless hours of otherworldly horror.

Gather Your Team

Build the perfect team of up to four intrepid investigators to prevent the emergence of Azathoth, the demon god of the unnamable void. His arrival will surely spell the end of human existence, but if you can use your investigators’ skills wisely, you’ll stave off destruction. All sixteen of Elder Sign’s unique investigators stand ready to face these otherworldly horrors; control any number of them in your own solo game, or “pass and play” with your friends!

While Elder Sign: Omens brilliantly conveys the spirit of the Elder Sign dice game, there are a few noteworthy differences. Its streamlined card effects and simplified inventory options take the bookkeeping out of your eldritch adventues, helping you focus on ridding the world of ancient evils from beyond. And you’ll need every bit of concentration you can muster. Elder Sign: Omens features monsters of increased difficulty and more potent negative effects (with a decreased frequency of “no effect” cards) with every stroke of midnight.

Comments / Trivia
