Abbey Games, who created the absolutely wonderful Reus (which was a surprise hit for me that ate up a ton of game time), are coming out with a new game that has just entered Alpha. Renowned Explorers is still in the early stages, but looks quite promising in the newly released trailer:
Abbey Games is inviting a small specially selected group of players into the Alpha version Renowned Explorers: International Society. These players will take their firststeps in the search for legendary treasures.
Take command of a hand-picked group of explorers and take them on various expeditions across the globe in search of legendary treasures that will earn you fame and fortune at the World Expo. As your museum’s exhibition grows from the treasures you find, you earn more and more prestige. In order to stay ahead of your rivals, you will have to plan even more ambitious expeditions, so be sure you have picked the best explorers for the task at hand. Visit lost temples, forgotten cities and untamed wilderness, but be aware of any natives or wild animals, for they do not always agree with your ambition to become a Renowned Explorer!
Renowned Explorers: International Society is planned to be released in 2015 and will be available on Steam.
We’ll be talking to the team at Abbey Games at PAXEast next week, so if you’ve got a question, don’t hesitate to stick it in the comments!
