Press Clippings:

“I am honestly surprised by the amount of dialogue in Telepath RPG, and at how well it is presented. Ideas are explored that most games ignore, such as how it feels to take someone’s life and how it is represented inside the mind.”
–Rick B., Indie Theory

“It’s a solid SRPG with a compelling story that should win over traditional tabletop wargamers, as well as anyone who enjoyed Disgaea or Final Fantasy Tactics…. Small strategic details like flank attacks and ranged weapon usage are exactly right. The conflict that drives the game is worldly and political, but the main character’s quest is a personal one about family. There’s even an in-game explanation for why you’re able to see the position of every fighter on the battlefield, which is a detail that isn’t usually addressed in an SRPG of any type or setting. What’s most inspiring about the game is the novelty of the setting, which never seems to wear itself out.”
–The Indie Mine

“I played on Normal difficulty in the demo and even early on the combat design and enemy AI was challenging enough that I was rewarded for thinking ahead a few turns and paying attention to tactical aspects like flanking and unit direction….Narratively speaking the writing seems very good so far, and it’s clear that a lot of work went into characterization (as evidenced by the voice actor interviews on the developer’s YouTube channel) as well as the game’s intriguing and original Middle Eastern/Steampunk setting.“
Egges’s Blog

“At heart, it’s a turn-based tactical RPG that feels like what a game of chess would be like if each piece had a big character sheet of RPG stats to take into consideration. Stern must have played a lot of Shining Force and Final Fantasy Tactics as a kid, as he knows how to exploit the mechanics of this kind of combat to demand strategic and thoughtful thinking from the player.”
–George Weidman, TruePCGaming

“You’ll complete various quests on a tree, with different quests and their outcomes having varying effects on the ending. Bringing in a real moral element, the choices that you make throughout the game will affect your experience later on.”
–Brandy Shaul, GameZebo

“Turn-based strategic combat is the order of the day, like that found in The Battle for Wesnoth. With this being an RPG though, as it says in the title, there’s lots of talking and wandering as well. I should be loving this and the sizable demo is eventually entertaining, but it does take a while to get going.”
–Adam Smith,

“I’m excited about this game.”
–Jay Barnson, Rampant Coyote Games Blog

“Last year I posted about the early demo for a great-looking new indie RPG called Telepath: The Servants of God by Sinister Design. I absolutely loved the game for the unique design and style… The game has made tremendous forward progress in the last year, and moving to an Air app and unified installer is absolutely perfect.”
–Michael Anderson, Gear Diary Games News

“Gamers versed in the ways of Apple’s iPhone and iPad got their tactical gaming fix last week when Final Fantasy Tactics: The War of the Lions made its way into the iTunes App Store, but if you’re looking for something with a bit of a different feel, you’ll want to try out the latest demo for Telepath RPG: Servants of God.”

“In the mean time you can download the demo here and check out this great game from Sinister Design. If you like it as much as we do here at DayOldStubble then Sinister Design has a special pre-order sale going on where you can save $5 off the retail price and get the final version when it is released.”
–Jason Carrick,

“…a turn-based, role-playing & dialog-heavy indie RPG…that eschews the traditional Tolkienesque fantasy world, instead going for something that seems to have more of a steampunk-ish middle-eastern flavor.”
