Dear Explorers, today we look back upon a year rich of history and progress for Renowned Explorers. All of it is certainly worth celebrating and we will do so in many ways! Please do read on.

Patch #19: Emerged Island content
First of all, we just released Patch #19, the last of a series of patches meant to improve and stabilize the game. This one contains quite a bit of fresh content to make the Emerged Island that much more exciting. Patch Notes here.

Livestream Celebration
For the party itself, we hosted a live stream here on our Twitch channel. Unfortunately it's over now, but you can watch it back right there. The program consistsed of a look back on the past year, the release of Patch #19, playing a 1-year old launch build, a 2-year old dev build, contests, interviews and a glimpse in Renowned Explorers' future. Read more here.

*** UPDATE ***
At the end of the anniversary celebration stream we announed some exciting news: we will keep working on Renowned Explorers.

Patch #18: Shangri-Love and more.


Following renewed interest in the game, we're continuing work on Renowned Explorers through at least August. For now, that means a fresh patch #18, with juicy content and a ton of balance and fixes!

Let's go through some of the highlights. If you rather read the full patch notes, check here.

Shangri-La
With the More To Explore expedition we released the Lost Island, a 5-star alternative to Shangri-La. It has proven very popular and many players like it better than the Tibetan expedition both in terms of fun and game value. To help Shangri-La back up to its legendary status, we created new content and did some balance changes and fixes in both expeditions. Visit Shangri-La for a new treasure and some new events!

Captain Hatice
Hatice has a new captain perk! Many people don't know that the silent Hatice is a brilliant investor. It explains, feeds and expresser her greed. In Patch #18 we've made this into a new captain perk for her: Investor: +10 Collect at the start of each expedition. Gain 2 insight if you end an expedition with 50 Collect or more. Can you achieve a proper Return of Investment?

No-one escapes destiny
Over time Renowned Explorers has developed a dedicated community of Weekly Challengers. We never expected this competitive part of the game to become a community focus, but now that it is, we felt the need to work on some randomness issues to disincentivize constant reloading. Roll-games and encounter arenas are now pre-determined at island generation, so that when you fail a challenge, you won't be able to succeed in it by reloading the game. There are also some miscellaneous fixes for exploits.

More adventuring
On top of the above, Adriaan worked on a lot of balance to make the game more fun, based on community feedback. There are changes in cards, entourage, treasures, events and encounters. Check the full patch notes to find out more, or just start-up the game already ;)

Have fun on your adventures!

Reviews

“It's genuinely great, like, it's one of my favorite games this year so far. It's got so much going for it, so much depth, so much character, so much replayability, great systems, unique concepts in combat, awesome presentation...”
TotalBiscuit, The Cynical Brit

“Here’s where I start to love Renowned Explorers. The encounters aren’t just a paper/rock/scissors system of aggressive, friendly, or devious. The more pertinent choice is whether you’re going to talk or fight. Either approach has distinct rules, with some characters suited to one or the other.”
100 – Quartertothree - Tom Chick

“...Renowned Explorers still stands as one of the best surprises of the year so far that wannabe adventurers of any age can enjoy. Encountering some thugs but instead of fighting, it just turns into one great big insult throwing contest where the loser runs away, foaming at the mouth. Brilliant.”
85 – Gamewatcher - John Paul Jones

A fun and challenging game on many levels, for me it's really fun in small doses (i usually do one playthrough here and there). Each time you win or loose, you get a reward in form of cards to carry over to the next time. Considering the amount of crew combinations, there is alot of replayability, i seriously hope for more adventures to launch as dlc further on thou.

A smartly made game. A bit of choose-your-own-adventure, a bit of turn-based "combat," and even some resource management.

The real meat of this game is the combat. It has to be one of more creative ways I have seen. In addition to straight-up fighting skills, you can defeat your enemies with persuasive words and/or insulting taunts. There really is nothing like making a pirate run away in tears. Though knowing when to use each method is key to winning.

Overall a very fun game to play, with plenty of replayability to it.

This game was the gem of the previous Steam Sale for me. You know, that game you take a chance on and end up playing more than anything else you bought?

Part boardgame, part party management RPG, part tactical strategy, part (optional) roguelike, and all of these elements (which mesh extremely well) wrapped in a charming and effective artstyle with clever writing. Your combat and adventure approaches will be dictated by your party makeup, which is chosen prior to the start of the game from a variety of options. Depending on the skills of each, your approach will differ each game, making for a highly replayable game. Want to seduce every enemy that comes your way instead of shooting/ clubbing them? There are options for that. This game also has a large and diverse set of achievements, which I personally like (but your mileage may vary if you're the type who hates everything that has happened in gaming since Fallout 2 was released. No judgement.).

I also recommend the expansion, but if you want to test the base game first you can always add it for an additional playthrough (which you will want to have several of just to see the additional content.) This one is worth taking a risk on, even at full price.

I would reccommend besides the issue that once a mission is started it can't be stopped until you succeed. I have found myself stuck on an adventure because it was harder then my party could face, thus having to start the game over again and again. If you avoid harder adventures, you lose by not gaining enough renown. I would reccomend this game if they fixed this.

This was definitely a good buy. It has good replayability in the short term but once you've gone on every expedition three or four times it becomes a bit predictable. Could do with some more randomization or better yet more content. An extra handful of expeditions would be a welcome addition.

Pros:
-Upbeat, lighthearted tone.
-Reminiscent of several fun cooperative board games I've played.
-Good campaign length. Not too long nor too short.
-Good variety between characters.
-Nice balance of intuitiveness for ease of play and complexity for challenge.

Cons:
-Loses replayibility in the long term.

There's tons to love in this turn-based adventure game. The game has a LOT going for it; I'll try to cover the highlights.

One of its greatest assets is incredible replayability. There are 6,840 different possible crews you can assemble, each of which can be played in at least nine different ways, for 61,560 possible adventuring combinations. Each of the 20 possible crew members has unique foibles and attitudes that affect and interract with each adventure map. Each of the 13 adventure maps also has so many random encounters that I still haven't experienced them all despite multiple play-throughs.

The combat system, sounds, and graphics for every character and enemy have been lovingly crafted. There's a ton to see and hear and enjoy with each encounter and character that it's hard to grow bored.

RE:IS is turn-based tactics at its best.

For the first ten minutes you're thinking "Oh this seems a bit humdrum" ... and then you are insulted (or complimented) by a sheep, and everything goes a bit strange after that.

Welcome to the wonderful world of Renowned Explorers : International Society, best described as a very warm and charming take on "The Curious Expedition" but do not confuse that for "Simple or shallow", no. Nonono. This game is, underneath the big fluffy cuddly exterior, much like a house cat, and like any house cat, it has paws made up of TEENY TINY KNIVES which will dig their way in and cause much horrible pain if you're not paying attention to the various mechanics at work.

If you've never had the joy of living with a house cat, it's the most wonderful experience, and they'll slowly destroy everything you own, but you'll never be able to get upset with them, because they're made of fur, and wuv. Even when it comes to cleaning their ears and they rake nice red lines into your forearm so you look like you've been on a self harm trip.

This game is very much like a house cat, you don't own it. It owns you. Often as a matter of fact. I've played the better end of hm, fifty attempts, often getting to 4* or 5* difficulty expeditions and then it all goes horribly horribly wrong. Oh it's call cute and cuddly in the beginning with nice scottish highlands and pirates treasure out in the carribean but just you wait, wait until you're knee deep in Transylvania, hungry wolves and digging into the legends of one Mr. Dracul who turns out to be a real charmer with the speech and can WRECK a diplomatically inclined team in seconds because as it turns out, your strength just became a phenomenal weakness.

*AHEM* Back on topic Senor Hobbes?

Okay, let's pull the camera back and do a breakdown of the game. It runs in three distinct "beats", first and foremost is the World Map, this serves as your transition between various adventures, it's where you kit out your explorers, spend insight and convert that into "Useful materials" for expeditions ahead, and then spend gold, status, and research on "Things that will help" such as equipment upgrades (armour helps a LOT, so do trinkets), your entourage (who acts as a force multiplier and offers special conditions in the case of the named entourage members), and unlocking areas of the research tree that yields additional supplies, and other useful benefits, again, making the ride through the game that much smoother. It's your HQ in effect, but there's a lot to do between adventures, and a lot of discrete choices to make as to how you want to "build your team", so it's not like a case of "Click click done".

Doing the FTL dance in a very focussed way, and with more Sheep

Second beat comes in the form of the "local adventure" map, which once you've selected WHERE you want to go, is then a zoomed up version of the location, say, an area of land or an island, part fogged in and part visible depending on how much terrain you've covered, each map has points of interest (think FTL) and the idea is you move around the points of interest, solving challenges.

Most of these are "Roll" challenges where a % chance to succeed is based on the skills of the team, more skills mean more prizes, in some cases simply having ENOUGH skills in a specific tree will unlock whole new options, which are coloured in and take you down new routes with additional rewards. The limit on simply being able to clean the map is "Supplies", the cap is soft, you can go below zero, but each point that you do, imposes a very steep penalty on your ability to fight. You can get away with one or two points, but more than this is just -begging- for a game over.

The stories for each area are well written and the narrative is cohesive, it's good enough that you'll be able to get a feel for what goes on in each area and you'll pay some attention to the choices presented (there's usually clues in the text as to what's a good choice and what's a bad one), sometimes you'll end up with a case of "Best of the worst" options which can be a tad irritating but that's RNG for you when you don't know what you're going to draw from the story deck for a given area.

And then I got into a shouting match with a nun...

Finally, there's the turn based fighting sequence, which kicks in on an encounter. This is not just a case of move and shoot. You have three options, one agressive, one devious, one friendly, the game KINDA works like rock paper scissors, however, there's more than just the fight atmosphere to consider, because if you want the optimal rewards you may have to finish a fight in a specific manner.

In other cases you may face opponents who change their own approach when you munchkin the game mechanics (in other words, attempt to game the boss and the boss games YOU), and each of the RE:IS members have their own specific strengths and weaknesses meaning some just don't work out that well for a specific strategy in one way, but are great when used in a different approach. Using a one dimensional "Oh I am gonna stack the board with speakers" seems great in principle, but then Mr. Dracul comes along and "OH GOD I'M GOING TO GET MY FACE TORN OFF", so it's not always the greatest plan to put all the eggs in one basket.

A wonderful cast of heroes and villains

In fact you'll probably have so much fun with the various boss encounters and the foes like the Smuggler Boss (who you can reduce to tears) and Mr. Dracul that the real goal, beating the obnoxious champion of the International Society will take the back seat as the moment to moment stories you find yourself in matter more, Riveleaux can wait, I've a vampire to convince.

Closing thoughts

So here's the big question "Curious Expedition" or "Renowned explorers" - Me? I'd say both. They're wonderful games both of them, but if I had to make a choice? I'd take the house cat over the darker sibling, and ONLY JUST. Because it's the house cat, and it's "Heartwarming" (and yes, that's something you can DO to your foes in this game).

I love my cats. I love this game so very dearly. Get it.

Verdict : Essential

A very fun game, good to waste some time on but there are some caveats.

The game is well built and the ui is easy to navigate for the most part, I myself only ran into some troubles when trying to pick new skills for characters but once figured out there are no issues. The Tutorial is simply great and allows you to get to know the game and explains everything extremely well. Gameplay is solid and certainly different than other games, which is a big plus. See it as a bit of settlers of catan, where you need to earn resources in order to win the game. Tie this in with a bit of D&D and you get this game.

I PERSONALLY got tired of the game pretty quickly, this is because I am not a completionist, once I have seen something once I have little desire to visit it again, so if you are like me consider waiting for a sale as the full price might not be worth it. The game CAN be completed in as little as an hour to a couple of hours depending on the difficulty you set it on. There are about 8 "Maps" that you can play on and without the DLC that adds 2 more there is not a lot of variance in the game. The only variance is the different runs you do on the same maps over and over by only changing characters, this is what I didnt enjoy myself. If you are someone that likes to collect achievements, unlock all of the characters or visist 100% of evey map I can easily tell you that over 100 hours of fun await you in this game.


TLDR:

In the end I would definately recommend this game, If you are someone that doesnt like replaying games wait for a sale, are you a completionist this game is an absolute steal even for its current price.

The game has so much good (and potential) in it, that it almost hurts to not recommend it.

But basically the game falls down in one crucial area: The combat. The combat that was supposed to be the one thing that gives the game it's edge. Despite all the hype, the combat isn't as complicated as one would think at first. Whenever I see an incoming combat on the map, my first reaction is the save and quit. The combat is too sluggish and takes too long, not to mention several other things I personally disliked, but are irrelevant here. And the system of different attack types isn't as good as advertised.

And the maps are always the same. Period.
"Procedurally generated" IS a straight out lie. The maps are always the same, that always have the same key places in them. Some less meaningful places change places and content, but those things are too irrelevant to matter.

Character customisation is almost non-existent. You may be able to buy a few items for your team here and there, but they really don't seem to matter all that much. Buying items for the tank is pointless, since all the enemies (almost) always spawns around your team and they always ignore the tank completely and run straight at your glasscannons. And buying more dmg for these glasscannons is pointless, because then bosses will one hit them.

The game has one of the best, if not the best in-game manuals that I ever rememeber seeing (which is awesome, since I hate browsing through wikis to be able to play a game). And as I originally said, the game has so much good things going in it, but they all become irrelevant when the combat takes all the fun out of it.

The negative tone here is probably due to me not being the correct audience for the game, at least considering the amount of positive reviews it has (I bought this after playing FTL, I'm guessing I was expecting a bit too much).

Renowned Explorers is a unique blend of exploration and turn based/hexagonal combat. The game is designed to be replayed multiple times, offering 2 game modes and 4 difficulties. The goal is to be the top explorer and beat the present #1 - a task that I couldn’t achieve even on normal difficulty. To be at the top you have 5 expeditions to rack up more Renown than the top explorer (2500). Expeditions get harder towards the end with the last one being super hard to beat. Expedition maps are procedurally generated so every replay is different, and so can be your approach since there are multiple ways you can choose to take your playthrough. Focusing mostly on Research, Status or Gold or choosing a combination of heroes that focus on different playstyles.

But the combat is where it’s at. It takes a different approach than any other turn based game out there. There are 3 ways to beat your opponents - Aggressive, Devious or Friendly. You choose your approach based on your opponents mood since one mood is advantageous to the other.

So becoming a top explorer is not an easy task when you have all of these things to worry about and find the perfect blend. I personally enjoyed the first 2 playthroughs but then got bored of it. I would still recommend it for the fans of the genre since the game is unique in some aspects.
