To start the game, simply run

The goal of the game is to collect all three cursed keys that are distributed all over the kingdom of Kurzur. With these keys, you are able to get to the nameless wizard which threatens the kingdom and beat him.

There are 4 regions (9 in the big world map), in every but the one you started you will find one key.

Getting Curse of the Keys and running it

Run the following command to clone the Curse of the Keys repository

$ hg clone

You'll find a file called Run it to start the game


To move around, use the arrow keys.

Press s on the world map to toggle music on/off

Press ESC on the world map to toggle fullscreen on/off

Press SPACE to enter a location


Village: Here you can hire new warriors and buy rations.

Settlement: Like village, but more expensive and you can also hire new followers.

Capital city: If you run out of gold/warriors/rations, the major of the city will help you out.

Ruin/Fortress: I don't know, maybe you should investigate.


Scout: makes you move faster.

Carrier: you lose only half your gold/rations when you lose a fight.

Miracle healer: revives your fallen warriors sometimes.

Wizard: destroys enemies sometimes.

Ship: you can move on water.

Navigator: you can move faster on water.


Every month, your warriors need food, so you should buy rations sometimes

Differences to the original

You will fight every time with all of your warriors, you can not choose how many will fight.

The game is much, much more faster.

There is no extra screen that tells you when a month has passed.

There is no option to search a ruin 'carefully' or 'not carefully'

And some other things........


There's a bigger world map if you don't want to use the original one. Just go to and set USE_BIG_MAP = True.

Please don't look at the source. This was the first game I wrote with python, and your eyes will probably start to bleed.
