They've had fans work on expansions before, you might want to chat with Catacomber and see what your options are (i.e. make a text-heavy expansion with less combat)

Also look for the developer of Dungeon of the Damned, which looks like a dungeon crawler, but plays more like Myst - he might have some good pointers for ya.

I bought The Quest Gold + all the rest of the expansions a couple of months ago. When you activate the expansions into The Quest/Gold, does it just "flip a switch" in the main game (the Quest/Gold) to tell the game that you've purchased/activated the expansions, or does it transfer extra data to the main game (graphics, sound, maps, etc...)?

I haven't played very far into The Quest Gold and I had to restore my iPod Touch. The Quest Gold was reinstalled and it looks like the expansions are there (the 3 Captain Verra ones, at least). Just wondering if I should delete The Quest Gold and reinstall everything again or if I'm good to go after the restore?

Game Impressions

I really like the game; but it annoys me when I'm going to the first town and I get jumped by the seemingly endless number of orcs and archers, I had to bring them into town, go against the inn door, and take a couple hits, and then rest, repeat; I had to do this process for about 30 minutes to get all the enemies away, so I would suggest lowering the spawn rate in the wild because it's f***ing rediculous.

Or maybe have the guards at the gate actually do something. Or just not let monsters/archers in the town.

@aenigma: the expansions just enable the content in the main app.

For peace of mind, next time you get a game going, plug into your computer, go to Apps -> File Sharing in iTunes and backup your games files there.

Thanks drelbs, I was hoping that I didn't have to reinstall everything . I'll definitely backup the game files the next time I sync.

Sorry another question from me. I cant find anything good i can use to develop my game, so what program do you use? Sorry if this is unclear. I really need to know so i can start my game
e.g. C++ (this is a bad example but it is the only one i can think of)

Not sure how Celtic Queen slipped past me but I appreciate the continued expansions!
