Curious Expedition 2 is a narrative roguelike adventure set in a reimagined version of the late 19th Century. Players take on the role of an intrepid explorer on a quest to discover the secrets of mysterious islands that have begun to appear in the oceans. Using a combination of hand-crafted and procedural gameplay and story elements, Curious Expedition 2 creates completely unique and epic adventures every time you play. It tells its story through traditional choice-based adventure mechanics, but also adds in resource management, turn-based exploration and combat sections with dice-roll mechanics, and roguelike elements. It’s a curious mix of genres and subgenres, all wrapped up in a streamlined and accessible gameplay experience with powerfully dynamic options.
