    Adventure game with strategy and management elements in a medieval fantasy setting.

    Embark on quests, hunt down treasures and manage your resources as you build, battle, cast magic and brew potions to bring order to the world.

    EXPLORE
    Strange creatures living in different locations await you. Some of them will help you, others need your help, and others will take a liking to your head...or, rather, your fresh brains. You will visit quiet villages, snow-capped mountaintops, impenetrable forests, and foul-smelling swamps. But one thing will remain the same - adventure awaits you everywhere!

    GATHER RESOURCES
    Collect everything that isn't bolted to the floor! Dwarves don't mind work, but they won't lift a finger in an empty stomach. You can't build a working mill out of mud and sticks, so you'll have to search for the appropriate materials. Keep food stocked and resources plentiful and your world will expand!

    BUILD
    Build bridges over turbulent rivers, build docks in the swamps, repair buildings, and build new ones! Mills will provide food, sawmills will provide building materials, forges will improve equipment - and you can always sell the surplus at the market. Many building styles and colors await you in the game.

    The Unexpected Quest mostly looks good, mostly plays good, and I would mostly recommend it. I don’t know if I’ll remember the game in a couple of months, but I still had a good time with it, even with all its frustrations. It might not be a glowing recommendation, but if you have a fantasy itch to scratch and a little money to blow, hey, why not?

    As an adult and long time gamer, I feel this really is for a much younger crowd of players. It’s not necessarily a bad game, just very simple and easy with no real apparent challenge.

    I had fun with The Unexpected Quest but its failure to challenge me made the experience less satisfying than it could have been.

    Α very simple and 100% casual experience reminiscing of mobile games in a charming fantasy setting, good enough for chilling out and effortlessly spending your time.

    The campaign can be finished in about seven hours without any real difficulty or climax, and it holds no replay value beyond achievement hunting. The Unexpected Quest does scratch a certain itch for the good ol’ days of the RTS genre and the lack of difficulty makes it a solid buy for those who aren’t genre vets, but with just a little more on offer, this could have been a must-play.

    The Unexpected Quest is unexpectedly short with only eight chapters and no variance offered upon replay. It is a decent time-waster of an RTS, but it is far from deeply engaging or exciting. Limited controls, the inability to place buildings where you want and one-on-one unit battles put a damper on the experience. This is not the game that will take the place of Warcraft as it feels like it never quite takes the training wheels off and there are better RTS experiences to be had, making this really only good for newcomers to the genre who need a gentle, simple pace.

    Except for the very curious, this is one to avoid.

    Remembering good old times in WoW you can't just pass through this game!

    Unexpectedly easy to manage, this game definitely not RTS. It keeps you relaxed while playing and AI is really helpful for the management of your team. 8 chapters of the game are pretty linear, but in this case, I can't say this is cons.

    I could recommend it for all who passionate about good old fun games with resource management and want to relax playing this one!

    A laid-back title to play with your kids. While its strategy and adventure elements are quite casual, overall, the game is very enjoyable.
