Cursed Desires Walkthrough

"Cursed Desires" is a puzzle-centric adventure game, developed by Vonwert, best known for creating "Dark Illusions" - a "Nocturnal Illusion" visual novel remake in RPG Maker.

While "Dark Illusions" remained a visual novel, albeit with inserted adventure game elements , "Cursed Desires" focuses on puzzle solving. It's a story of a missing treasure of the famous female pirate Anne Bonny, which is sought out by our protagonist Lex Johnson. He travels from place to place and has to solve a puzzle course each time, in order to acquire each piece of the treasure.

Unlike "Dark Illusions", the game seems to be fully linear and doesn't have any hidden paths or secrets. Hence, this walkthrough should be a 100 % solution to the game.

1 - 8

5 - 11
6 - 10
7 - 12
