Curious Expedition is a multi-faceted game, with many layers and visible inspirations from classic games. The premise is actually very simple, but don't let that fool you – this is a difficult and unforgiving roguelite. If you love travel and history, you will thoroughly enjoy exploring a new world in Curious Expedition.

Still, in that time it's a pretty good laugh, and The Curious Expedition bestows a real sense of adventure and exploration.
