Curious Expedition 2 history and lore
It is 1886 and the world waits with bated breath for the Universal Exposition in Paris. During this period an immense discovery was made: mysterious islands in the oceans began to appear, and then disappear soon after, as if by magic.
The big three Paris Explorer Clubs are now funding expeditions to these strange islands in an attempt to make bold new discoveries, to be displayed in their stands at the next World's Fair.
Step into the shoes of an intrepid explorer, gather your crew and encounter all sorts of unique cultures, flora, fauna, treasures and more. With a timeless art style inspired by classic 20th-century Franco-Belgian comics and a mesmerizingly orchestrated soundtrack, Curious Expedition 2 is an adventurous storybook that comes to life.
Using a combination of procedural gameplay and story elements, Curious Expedition 2 creates epic and unique adventures every time you play.
It's a curious mix of genres and sub-genres, all wrapped up in a simplified and accessible gaming experience with highly dynamic options. In Curious Expedition 2, no two adventures are alike. Your character and the ones you recruit are all procedurally generated with specific classes, but with their own unique looks, abilities, strengths and weaknesses.
In your adventures, all sorts of unforeseen circumstances can have a positive or negative impact on your progress, so careful management of resources and sanity is required to get home with your loot and squad! There are several types of expeditions, each with their own unique goals and events. Will you search for the legendary Golden Pyramid or will you choose to retrieve the Rainbow Orchid instead? Plunder ancient shrines, bargain with indigenous merchants or tribes, plunder ghostly pirate ships, and more in your procedural pulp adventure.
