    If you bought a sandwich and it was good. Then you went back to the sandwich shop and they made it an even better sandwich would you have to buy that one too?

    I don't suppose this includes any of the expansions that were previously released? I picked up pretty much all of the previously available content and would love to be able to use it, instead of having to rebuy everything.

    Beggars can't be choosers though - just happy the HD version came to iOS. It's my preferred platform for stuff like this.

    EDIT: Nevermind, looks like my questions were answered in previous posts - can't wait to re purchase this bad boy.

    While your review is generally very positive, I'm hesitant to hit "buy" mainly because of this issue. During your beta testing did you get a response from the developer regarding whether or not this would be addressed and a timetable?

    Actually, the Quest logs never update. :) I know it sounds strange, but The Quest was designed quite a while ago, and was explicitly designed to be old school, no hand holding. The game won't tell you every step where to go, there are no directional arrows to your next objective, etc. You get a textual description of what the quest is, and that's it. Finding your way around is part of the fun.

    That said, the quest descriptions have been polished since The Quest was first released and most quests are not complicated at all. The textual quest descriptions will tell you where to go and who to talk to. Even in case of the more involved ones, there is usually a straigthforward way to do them (maybe not the best one). Also there are no mazes and you can't really get lost on the world map. And if you are stuck on a quest, there are guides for everything on our forums.

    (And finally, The Quest 2 will have a more detailed quest system. :))

    Wow. Great analogy. It's hard to argue with that logic. I'm inclined to go with another sandwich, based on how great the first one was.

    I think making the HD version universal would be brilliant. You can rename the non-hd versions The Quest Classic and The Quest Classic: Gold Edition. The new ones can be The Quest HD and The Quest HD: Gold Edition.

    I think making more distinct icons for each product would also really help. Right now with all the expansions and versions all having the same 1-2 icons, it can be more difficult telling them apart at a glance.

    Also, as soon as you make the HD version for iPhone, I'll be buying it.

    This is the first game thats come along thats made me update my ios from 8.1 to the latest 9.3!
    Thats how much i rate this game, i never wanted to update but for this i just has to.
    The immersion and gritty, creepy gameplay i get from this is well worth buying again.
    Anybody on the fence....you will not be dissapointed!!!✌#️#

    So I know this question is taboo and what not but what do you think the timeframe for the iPhone version of this will be like 2 or so months?

    I sure hope not. It's quite the work, redesigning all game screens for the much smaller view, but hopefully it'll take only a week or two. :)

    Wow nice I like that time frame, once again redshift awes me with their cometment to fans what with all the patches the base game has gotten, the expansions (some thanks to zarista) and the fact that you still update a game that has been on the AppStore for as long as it has. Any other Dev team would have stopped the updates two maybe three months in but you all still update, really thanks, it's good to see devs that actually give a damn about there product

    Showing my age, but the earliest RPG's, Ultima, Bards tale, etc, placed the burden of quest tracking entirely on the user. In an age before Internet, wikis or even printed game guides, knowing what to do and where to go was often the biggest challenge.

    If this HD version comes out on iPhone, I'll instantly buy it. Purchased The Quest Gold before but sadly the graphic turned me off. The HD looks amazing and I'd love to play what's considered one of iPhone's greatest RPGs.

    Hmm. I've downloaded the standard one twice now on my phone and deleted twice. Just could not get into it. There's certainly some that love it.
    I just couldn't put up with the first person stepwise play. Turning in circles to turn around just made me feel claustrophobic within the game (couldn't think of a better way to explain it).

    But seeing all this again. I will download the standard edition on my 6+ and try once again.

    I would be leaving behind Bioshock, and all my emulators (iDOS 2 Daggerfall/Scummvm adventures, snes/nes/gba etc..)

    I am tempted by this, and I own DotT (also cannot play on iPad because ios 9 req)... Really torn by this!!
