Renowned Explorers Three-year Anniversary!

Three years ago, Renowned Explorers: International Society was first released! It's been an amazing few years with multiple pieces of DLC, tons of patches, and an amazing community that still organizes a weekly Community Challenge. And we're not done yet!

Even though we're still working hard on Godhood, there's more Renowned Explorers to come, so a small celebration is in order. If you participate in this week's Special Anniversary Community Challenge and join our Discord, you have a chance of winning a key for one of our games or DLCs! So go forth, and make Mama Rivaleux proud!

Patch 26: Reus' Birthday

As some of you may know, our other game Reus celebrates it’s fifth birthday this week. Before we start the festivities on that tomorrow, we thought it would be nice to patch in a little nod to the giant god game in Renowned Explorers. Can you spot it below?



But that’s not all, of course. Like many patches before it, this one contains some minor fixes and rebalances of which you can read up in the patch notes.

So, the spotlight might shine on Reus for a moment and behind the scenes we’re also working on some unannounced stuff, but we’re definitely not planning on jumping airship from Renowned Explorers for the foreseeable future. There are still some great unexplored stories out there for our crew! And although we can’t really wait to tell you about it… we will wait to tell you about it. Expect some announcements later this year! And until then:…

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
