Full Steam Ahead For The Curious Expedition

Now on Steam Early Access

In the six months since I wrote about The Curious Expedition [official site], a great deal has changed. The shiny new trailer below shows some of those changes, including dicey combat, a world map, yawning great chasms that swallow expeditions whole, and a victory screen. It's possible that the victory screen was in the build I played last year but I certainly never saw it. I was too busy pondering the strange appeal of cannibalism and befriending a donkey.

The latest version is now available via Steam Early Access as well as direct from the devs.

If the trailer and my previous words aren't enough to convince you that The Curious Expedition is almost certainly worthy of your time, here are a few things I wrote in my notepad when I was playing.

"H Rider Haggard: The Roguelike."

"Jules Verne's Faster Than Light."

"The fucking tigers just won't stop."

"Of course there are dinosaurs."

I didn't write it down but I did see Marie Curie triggering a series of volcanic eruptions that threatened to tear a continent in half. She did that by lobbing dynamite all over the show because she needed to clear a path to a golden idol that she was keen to pillage.
