Immortalize the community in Challenge #100

The community just kicked-off Challenge #100!
"A hundred challenges, A million resources".
Join this week's cooperative challenge, win prizes and get your name in the game!


Veteran and new explorers alike have been creating, joining and winning weekly community challenges for a hundred weeks now. As developers we're super happy and eternally grateful to see creative use of the game week after week, especially by such a wonderful community! A special hats off to the 'Challenge PI' group, organizing the challenges since number #45. You're the best!

To celebrate Challenge #100, we're promising rewards to those participating in this weekly challenge. #100 is a special one, as it's cooperative instead of competitive. This means that there's a shared goal, and if you as a community reach it, we promise to immortalize the weekly challenge and all its players in-game, as well as raffle copies of our games and DLC among all participants.

The goal? Find the challenge here

Renowned Explorers Legacy on Developer Twitch Stream
One-hundred challenges is a true milestone, and it's a good moment to look back on all the changes Renowned Explorers went through. What better way is there than to launch version 1.0? (dating September 2nd, 2015) During a live-stream we'll play around with the legacy build and cringe at all the old stuff that has been improved with your help since.

Join us at: https://www.twitch.tv/abbeygames
Tomorrow, November 30th, 19:00 CET / 10:00 PT

Good luck with the challenge, and see you tomorrow!

Curious Expedition vs Renowned Explorers



It's time to face the truth. Renowned Explorers is not the only expedition game on the market. You will all have noticed the copycats from The Curious Expedition ALSO have an expedition management game out on Steam. SUSPICIOUS, right? Therefore, it only makes sense that people ask us ALL THE TIME how this game is different from "that other game about 19th century explorers?" Well, for one, Renowned Explorers is the better game of course! We even have 8 times as many pixels in our game!



To settle this once and for all we’re running a discount to make it easy for you to pick the right game. There’s a very deep discount of 67% on Renowned Explorers in Steam’s Daily Deal today, running for 48 hours.

Not convinced? Want to compare both games for yourself? Well, like the gentlemen we are, we quite literally bundled forces with the folks from Maschinen-Mensch to make that a lot easier for you as well! Or cheaper, at least… These games are hard!

For your investigative convenience, the Curious Expedition vs Renowned Explorers bundle has just appeared in the Steam store! At a unique discount of 65% you can pick up both games at once. And if you already own either one of them, you can also complete the set at a stacking discount, which means owners of the Curious Expedition can now obtain Renowned Explorers at a 75% discount!



If you’re interested in seeing us go through the hardship of actually playing that inferior product of a game called the Curious Expedition, you can visit special website this special website There’s also some footage of the Maschine-Mensch people in total awe after playing through a bit of Renowned Explorers for the first time. Great stuff.

Furthermore, we just released patch #25: Family Matters which adds some surprises next to a lot of fixes and rebalancing. So, let’s boot up one or more of these expedition management games and have some…

Happy adventuring,

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
