App description: The Quest - Cursed Chess Set is an expansion to The Quest, a beautifully hand-drawn, immersive and enchanting world full of exciting challenges. After enabling the expansion, you can explore new areas and quests. However, if you don't have The Quest, you can also play the expansion as a standalone game.

There has been a severe mana leak in the world that has left all beings stripped of power. You can plug the leak but can't reverse the damage that has already happened. Your mission, beyond plugging the mana leak, is to find and destroy the evil creature who captured the King's two landmark towers so he could magically add them to his cursed chess set as rooks. When he has succeeded in capturing the king and queen to complete his cursed chess set, he will be able to summon a demon that will give him ultimate power in this world. Destroy him and the demon before he can complete the ritual!

This expansion is designed for fresh characters. It's highly recommended that you start a new character to fully enjoy it. To access the new areas (not applicable if you are playing the expansion standalone), go to Matras harbor and talk to captain Verra, then select "Cursed" as your travel destination. For those who would like to play with an existing higher level character, there is a high level dungeon for a challenge.

Good question. Let's see, main quest is about 40 hours and expansions are about 25 hours, that is if you take your time and do all the quests. So, 8 expensions plus main quest would be around 240 hours, awesome!!

I spent over 300 hours in it, and got lost in Expansion 4 so decided to start all over...
so playing the main one for over 40 hours now.
I'm kinda annoyed that i have to level all the way up again, and getting killed
by the darn witches... but... i'll keep trying lol

This is the only game that made it through 2 Itouches and now an Ipad.

The only 2 expansions I don't have is this one and the space one. Think I may get them both today so I'll be up to date and won't miss anything.


Update: ok went ahead and got this and the other one so I'm all caught up with expansions. Now to start all over, sheww. Do you think there will be anymore expansions for this game???

We have at least four more planned. : 0

But we'd like to know how you feel about starting over--the plus is you can fight with magic again--if you're not happy we will continue to make the other planned releases higher levels but fighting with magic becomes very hard.

Does Redshift have any plan of making another (new) RPG or just expansions? Don't get me wrong, I love them but didn't they mention they had some other RPG planned?
