Curious Expedition VS Renowned Explorers BUNDLE



I remember it like it was yesterday. In 2015 we happily walked over the Gamescom show floor, proudly wearing our The Curious Expedition t-shirts for the incredibly orginal game that we had been working on in our spare time since 2012. All of the sudden we stumbled onto this booth by this SUSPICOUSLY similar looking game called Renowned Explorers. For a brief moment we questioned our own sanity and wondered if we had actually forgotten that we had rented and setup a booth at this convention. It turned out that we had no money to do that and that it was actually an entirely different game by the folks from Abbey Games.

Years have passed since then, but the question remained: Who succeeded in making the only true expedition game on the market? (Spoiler: It's The Curious Expedition obviously). For some reason the answer does not seem obvious to everybody, judging from the countless people having confused us with Renowned Explorers over the years.

To settle this once and for all we’re running a discount to make it easy for you to pick the right game. It is even the biggest discount that we've done so far! 35% on The Curious Expedition in Steam’s Daily Deal today, running for 48 hours.

Not convinced? Want to compare both games for yourself? Since we believe in our game, we bundled forces with Abbey Games 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! If you already own either one of them, you can also complete the set at a stacking discount!

If you’re interested in seeing us go through the hardship of actually playing that inferior product of a game called Renowned Explorers, you can visit this special website ( http://curiousvsrenowned.com ). There’s also some footage of the Abbey Games people in total awe after playing through a bit of Curious Expedition for the first time. Great stuff.

Adventure awaits!
