Excellent pulp exploration rogue-like Curious Expedition gets a free browser demo


Developer Maschinen-Mensch has just released a demo for its excellent rogue-like exploration sim Curious Expedition, and you can play it for free in your browser.

Curious Expedition’s pulp-inspired action sees you adopting the guise of a legendary explorer (or, at least, a famous figure with an inquisitive mind, ranging from Charles Darwin and Amelia Earhart to Aleister Crowley and HP Lovecraft) then setting forth across undiscovered lands in search of fame and fortune.

Your ultimate goal each game is to become the most successful explorer in all the world, amassing wealth and renown with every perilous expedition you embark on. Each mini adventure unfolds on a hex-based grid – representing a new, uncharted corner of the world – and your basic goal each time is to amass treasure and find the Golden Pyramid on each map, before hunger, or insanity – or worse – brings your journey to a premature end.
