"The Quest" is the game. Anything else is an expansion, to be played after you have played the game. To see in which order they are best to play, see their description, there will be a recommended character level.

There is also "The Quest Classic". This is how the game was originally released, many years ago. The Quest has received a complete graphical overhaul (and also lots of other small changes/fixes/additions), but it's basically the same game. There are more expansions available, but they are being updated for the new version. (Because most of the expansions are by third parties, it cannot be guaranteed that all will will be updated, of course. It'll depend on the creators.)

We recommend you buy "The Quest Deluxe". Its a bundle of "The Quest" and "Islands of Ice and Fire" (our own expansion) and it's cheaper than paying for them separately.

(Also, we are called "Redshift" or "Redshift Games", not "RedShift". ;))

It depends really on whether you like the oldschool graphics or the new HD graphics. There are opinions about both. It also depends on how much content you want to go through how fast. We've ported Hero of Lukomorye I to HD. The work is very hard and the testing takes a long time because of changes. We're not going to be able to port more than two expansions probably a year. So if you want to play our older expansions through, you are better off staying for now with the Quest Classic. It all depends on what you prefer.

Just my inexperienced opinion, The Quest HD(now just The Quest) is the way to go. I only recently got into the game, and was on the fence between older school but a metric ton of expansions, or the slick new version with less. I got the newer The Quest and have ZERO regrets. It is packed with content, and is also the platform that will continue to grow. Already there is one expansion not released for The Quest Classic, and Catacomber(who is seriously our lord and savior) is porting old expansions to the new The Quest. The Quest, not Classic, is the way to go for the future IMO.

If you're looking to play a lot of Zarista Games's expansions, then for now The Quest Classic is for you. Otherwise, The Quest HD already has two Zarista expansions and the official expansion.

Only problem is that porting is a huge work and I can't promise more than two a year for HD. I am having trouble keeping my enthusiasm up because of all the things necessary to change and check porting. Celtic Rift is coming along but it still needs more testing. I'm tired and my testers are tired. After Celtic Rift is done--it's a big file-- we're all going to need a few months' rest. I'm surprised my testers stuck with me for Celtic Rift because they tested Thor's Hammer and Luko I without any rest. I actually miss the old classic version. It will always be my favorite. If I could make a new expansion for the classic version I would. It's a lot easier than porting. There also seem to be problems on mobile I never encountered before so I can't say I'm happy. People have to sleep in an inn for a week for some things to show up.

The sad thing for me is that I'd rather be making new expansions than remaking old. It's extraordinarily boring in addition to being tiring. I love our players but I also need to keep my creativity.

If you'd like to create a new expansion, why not? Maybe create one new after a bunch (or even just one) updated old one? Just like Thor's Hammer. I'm sure your players would understand. ;) (Just an idea.)

As for the problems, as I've said elsewhere, those are highly likely because of changing the expansion while being played (either during testing or after release). This is unfortunate, because it makes testing (much) harder, but if a player plays an expansion normally (it doesn't get changed while it's being played) things generally work (maybe apart from that "globals" thing, but until I can reproduce it, I can't do anything).

Not a bad idea. But maybe for late 2018. Have to work on HOLII next. :)

Hey if it gives you any more motivation, I will buy every game you release, catacomber. I already have them all but I plan on buying every HD version as well.
The classic version is very much the same as the HD version, but the HD version is more intensive graphics. I think the old graphics are absolutely beautiful.

Aww, that is so sweet and encouraging. Celtic Rift is almost done testing. Will work on HOLII after that. Testers need a little rest though. :). Thanks.

I second this, Catacomber. I Love The Quest Classic and The Quest HD, they're the best games of this kind on the App store. (I would buy any and all Quest Classic expansions if you would ever make another expansion for it.) And I will be buying all expansions you make for The Quest HD!

Of course! You guys get some rest. No rush. We'll be here and ready to play when they're finished and ready to be downloaded from the App store. :)

Thanks! You inspire me. Am working on a new HD expansion based on old Irish folklore while porting HOLII. :)

I'm with them as well Cat. Thank you for all your hard work porting the expansions. I'm really glad that the new The Quest has cross saves so i can support you twice as much by buying your expansions on my pc and iphone.

2 ports per year sounds good to me and really looking forward to the Irish Folklore expansion and the HOLII port!

Just wondering, do you know what the recommended level will be for the Irish Folklore expansion yet?

Thanks so much, Bryan. Battlefield Uliada will be starting level 40. Have already started on it.

Catacomber - I have been a fan since Legacy on the Palm so I will buy every game you make from now until the end of time in any order your creative mind needs to develop/convert them! Just keep the adventures coming and I'll be yours for life.
