The Quest is a massive Role-playing Game set in a dynamic and complex world of dark medieval fantasy originally developed by Redshift Games for Pocket PC, and later adapted for multiple platforms. However, the game harnessed considerable popularity once it was adapted for the iPhone and iPod Touch and published by Chillingo.
The game has continued to grow in great part due to third party developers such as Zarista Games and other independent developers, and has seen a great number of expansion packages published across the different platforms. Although Redshift developed only the main game and one official expansion pack, the original creative forces behind this unique behemoth continue to provide support to it and all of its related products. This constant expansion of an already lavish fantasy realm has gathered a sizeable cult following in sites such as Playhaven, Catacomber, and Touch Arcade. The Quest has continued to be raved about as one of the best RPG games currently available on the App Store, and possibly the best retro RPG to date.
On December 7, 2015, The Quest was released to the Steam Greenlight system. It was Greenlit ten days later and officially released on December 21, 2015.
Main Game and Expansions
The Quest sports an impressive number of expansions in addition to the already massively immersed main game. Through these, a player is given the option of creating one character to undergo countless adventures throughout the hundreds of quests available to him in a continuous story, or play each installment as a stand-alone game experience.
