What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We are committed to involving the community in our development process. By bringing players into the game early, we have the opportunity to make big changes based on their feedback before it's too late to make a difference.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We plan to run the Early Access until Fall 2020, but a final release date has not yet been set.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“We expect to make major additions and changes along the way, but there will be a smooth transition from Early Access to version 1.0. We don't plan to artificially hold anything back from our early supporters. There are still a lot of features, content, and polish to add, but you'll see everything in the game as we build it.

The full version will also be fully localized in multiple languages besides English: Simplified Chinese, French, German, Japanese and Korean.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“We're in a fairly early state, and you can expect lots of warts at this stage. That's a good thing! It means you're getting in early enough to have an impact.

There's still a lot to dig into already, though. Core features are mostly complete: map travel, combat, online challenges, and the campaign are all fully playable. Roughly two-thirds of planned content has already been implemented (enemy types, items, characters, events, etc.) Apart from content additions, we expect our biggest evolution to be improvements to the core systems based on your feedback.

The largest notable element that isn't yet in the game is that the campaign story expeditions and main narrative content have yet to be done. These are currently filled by placeholders when playing through the campaign. This will be added as we progress through Early Access and will be ready well before launch.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the game will be cheaper during Early Access. We plan to raise the price as we approach the full release.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan to stay in regular contact with players via our Discord server and the Steam forums. Players on Discord can submit bugs and feedback that are directly added to our task log, having a direct impact on the game. Please note that the main language used for our communications will be English, we might not always be able to respond to comments and requests in other languages, but we'll try our best!”

About This Game

Curious Expedition 2 is a turn-based expedition roguelike that requires players to manage their resources and party members to keep insanity at bay and find glory.

A grand discovery has been made: mysterious islands that have begun to appear and vanish from the Atlantic as if by magic. The great Explorer Clubs are funding expeditions to these strange islands to bring treasures back for the 1889 World's Fair in Paris. Are you bold enough to join the adventure?

Key Features:

  • Explore procedurally generated worlds in a variety of biomes, each featuring a new combination of dangers and opportunities.
  • Manage your resources to keep your trek alive and sanity high. Balance greed against your survival needs to find glory without perishing.
  • Procedural storytelling makes every adventure unique. Your characters form relationships, change loyalty, acquire mental illnesses, and more in response to the environment and your decisions.
  • Embark on an epic campaign that combines procedural gameplay with handcrafted story to create a narrative experience that can be played again and again.
  • All-new combat mechanics will require all your cleverness to survive fierce wild animals and legendary creatures.
  • Join online challenges and pledge yourself to an Explorer Club to compete for unique rewards.
  • Outfit your party members with equippable gear to create builds that can take on any challenge.
  • Set off on all-new expedition types, each with their own unique goal and events. Will you seek out the legendary Golden Pyramid or choose to recover the Rainbow Orchid instead?
  • Explore and discover mysterious locations. Plunder ancient shrines, haggle with strange mole people, loot ghostly pirate ships, and more...
  • 4K-native graphics featuring a classic comic-inspired art style.
  • Veteran CE1 players will discover tons of new content: new items, character types, enemies, biomes, tribes, events, and more!
