Conquist No More – Expeditions: Viking Announced

2013’s Expeditions: Conquistador was an interesting idea, an expedition into the New World mixing exploration, party management, RPG bits, and turn-based combat. It was pretty fun, our Adam thought, but had a fair few problems too. Now developers Logic Arts have returned to announce another voyage, or more a series of raids.

Expeditions: Viking [Facebook page] will see that beardy lot cruising for a bruising and perusing for a pillaging, trying to lead a clan into a bright future.

She Sneaks, He Hacks: Clandestine’s Asymmetric Co-op

When social engineering fails...

Here’s a cracking idea for a co-op game: an asymmetric spy ‘em up where one player’s a secret agent infiltrating facilities using stealth, social engineering, and violence, while the other is a remote hacker who cracks systems and feeds the agent information. That’s a real game. It’s Clandestine, made by Expeditions: Conquistador devs Logic Artists. You can buy it today on Early Access.

I was not at all surprised to learn that creative director Jonas Wæver was lead designer of remarkable Deus Ex mod The Nameless Mod.

Wot I Think: Expeditions Conquistador

In 2013, the good ship Mancunia set sail for the New World. Upon arrival, my band of Conquistadors smoked a potato, ate some tobacco broth and became pals with the natives. I’m considering building a holiday resort on the coast of and below I’ll explain why you should pay us a visit, but when booking your stay, bear in mind that you might want to go home sooner rather than later.

ConquistaDora: Expeditions – Conquistador Out This Month

Expeditions: Conquistador has a release date, which is notable because it’s a game that required a swift boot in the pantaloons from Kickstarter and yet has still managed to release on time. Well, almost on time. Logic Artists had originally planned to release in January so to launch on February 28th can only be considered a failure of gigantic proportions. I’m going to start one of these lists, collating everything that has happened between the original date and the revised date. I probably ate some horses, for one. Obviously, it’s a small slip and the early version impressed me. Preview trailer below.

Cortés Command: Expeditions – Conquistador

Expeditions: Conquistador has an exemplary Kickstarter page: frequent updates, plenty of detail about the actual game as well as the people behind it and a decently explained pitch. Added to that, healthy development progress has already been made. The only thing that’s missing is a playable portion of the game to share with the community and, wouldn’t you know it, the fellows at Logic Artists sent me just such at thing. So, a little late with only nine days left to raise a further $15,000, I can comfortably say that Conquistador is an exciting project. It’d be easy to describe it as HOMM or King’s Bounty set during the conquest of The New World, but that sells the game a little short. I’ll try to explain why.
