Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy to explore the surface next year

Another reveal during E3's PC Gaming Show, Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is sequel to one of my favourite action-roguelikes of all time. The original Unexplored was purely limited to subterranean dungeons, but the sequel is expanding the action out into the wider world, and assembling adventures that span multiple generations, hence the 'legacy' part of the title. The sequel has a completely new look,…

Unexplored mod BOILINGHOT lets you delve at your own pace

Much as I love Ludomotion's real-time roguelike Unexplored, I'm acutely aware that a lot of people bounced off it because it's a lot to process all at once.

I also love Alien, even though it seems to have become a scab that Ridley Scott can't stop picking…

Unexplored plunders Mines of Moryondor in free DLC

Unexplored [official site], the splendid roguelikelike dungeon-crawler which Adam said "is almost certainly going to be one of my favourite games of the year", today received a free DLC adding a new challenge. Mithril Run's goal is to collect as much gold as you can in the dwarven mines of Moryondor, which keep some elements similar-ish between runs while others change more. Unexplorers can hit…
