    because for the most part in the eyes of these big companies WP7 still "sucks". At least that would make sense, once the user base gets a bit bigger you'll be seeing more and more "big companies" make games. That is only obvious though I'm sure mostly everybody here doesn't need an explanation like this to know that.
    As someone just coming from webos the app situation looks a whole lot more promising then it did with webos even despite it going through similar growing pains. I suspet we will continue to see a rapid growth of apps, hopefully some more advanced titles for xbox live. I remember reading a while ago that Microsoft was aiming at the casual gamer so I do hope they change that. With a playstation phone coming out it would be cool for Microsoft to have an army of xbox phones com petting in multiple flavor.

    I'm hoping some Xbox 360 Indie games developers will port their games to Windows Phone 7. It's apparently very easy to do since they all use XNA.

    Zeboyd Games has made two great indie RPGs on 360. They're currently porting them to PC, but maybe they could be persuaded to bring 'em to WP7 too.

    Everyone, please email the devs and ask them to release Breath of Death and Cthulhu Saves the World on WP7! You can also contact them via Twitter, which they seem to pay more attention to.

    I wouldn't pay for this, now, I don't mean that in any offending way towards you, however I think it would really only appeal to the extremely "don't have a life, rather do this than bang my girlfriend" (if you have one lol) hardcore RPG fanatic. Ever since going on spiritual journeys involving things of space, aliens, "are we alone?" and that sci-fi type of stuff; (with and without drugs involved lol) I've been more inclined towards games like Mass Effect and Dead Space. I've heard that, what little RPG elements the original game had, have been stripped out of the second release along with a less compelling storyline are really what leads me to wait for a price drop (That coupled with the fact that I still need to get me a new Xbox 360 haha) or I might not get it at all... who knows. but yeah it looks good nonetheless, keep up the good work!

    Please ignore Luis's response. Luis, shame on you! Dungeon Stalker actually looks pretty good! Who cares if it's not sci-fi? Anyway, Jonny, PM me and let's discuss it.

    I hope you're not talking about Mass Effect 2! The gameplay is definitely streamlined but the storyline and character interactions are fantastic.

    Ahah...well I think I'll be in the boat of not having a gf anymore if I continue spending my evenings coding that lol.
    I've played and finished both Mass Effect (the first, on the PC) and Dead Space (on Xbox360) but I still have good times thinking back at Chaos Strikes Back, Eye Of The Beholder, Black Crypt and such...Call me crazy, but I'm willing to give life to that kind of game on this new device :)

    You're getting a PM soon!

    Made a account solely for this post (just discovered wp7c xD).

    As far as RPG's i'd rather see a FFT-style game than anything else. The turn-based, grid, rpg would work fantastically for the platform, though i doubt Square could be bothered working porting it (indy devs maybe?).

    I'm still playing FFT on the PSP in the morning while on the subway!
    That was my 2nd choice as a project : a turn based RPG. Maybe after this, if I can find a bigger team (well at least 1 more than me lol) ;)

    I think I would give my left foot for a plain old, Dreamcast-style PSO on my phone. Original four levels, original gameplay, lobby system, etc. Should be pretty doable these days, and I would absolutely pay for it and play the **** out of it.

    Pokemon!!! I loved playing those games back in the day :). But really, I think any good turn based JRPG would be perfect for mobile gaming.

    Haha yea I wasted a ton of time on PSO. They'd have to change things up a little for me to go back. Although it'd be awesome having that game and being able to play anywhere on a handheld. Bring it Sega!

    Was Monkey Ball 2 announced for WP7?

    Sent from my Samsung Focus using Board Express
    It was announced a while back : Upcoming Xbox LIVE titles for WP7 revealed | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    And I can tell you its most likely next weeks title :)

    There might be more RPG games for WP7 but Harvest and Haipy Kingdom are 2 that I came across

    I didn't realize Skulls was coming to WP7. Contacted the developer straight away to find out whether it'll be an Xbox Live or an indie title. Thanks for the tip, Jax - let me know via PM if you discover any other WP7 titles that aren't on our upcoming games list. :)

    No problem. That's the best looking game i've seen for wp7 so far.

    Lol. That sounds impossible (nintendo games on Windows ? Maybe in 30 years) but something like Final Fantasy could be nice.
    "Fable" would be great !

    You know the ironic part is these touchscreen devices are perfect for a good old school turn based RPG and there are practically none between all the main mobile OS's.

    The harvest is a decent start for WP7 though. A bit more action than RPG but at least it dont use the awful joystick controls so many games do.

    I think people are just too focused on creating very specific types of RPG's for the platform, or other genres period. Even if you look at the iPod, it's not exactly a mystical dragon hording a pile of wonderfully gold role-playing games. There's a handful of decent RPG's for it, at best, and very few of them are traditional. The only company really making a decent attempt is Square.

    It's surprising on one hand, because you'd think the popularity of the platform would dictate a need for RPG's somewhere. But on the other hand, it's a lot less time consuming and profitable to make another Tower Defense game.

    I wish someone would make a decent attempt though. Chaos Rings should have been the start of something far greater, but sadly little has followed. Not even strategy RPG's, the number one type of RPG I'd think the system would work well with, have really cropped up with much frequency.

    iOS has Final Fantasy 1-3, Chaos Rings, several other games by SquareEnix, Phantasy Star II, Vay, Lunar, Doom RPG, Wolfenstein RPG... Come on, it has quite a decent number of RPGs.

    This site tracks a lot of 'em:
