In Renowned Explorers you take command of a motley crew and a mighty ship to explore the blank spots on the 18th centurieth maps. Prepare to encounter everything between reality and myth. Then survive the adventure and return with legendary treasures to rise in the prestigious ranks of the Victorian culture. There's no easy way to become the top act on the World Expo. You'll need something new, something legendary, something people have never seen before. And the only way to beat your rival to this treasure, is to find a better crew, a superior map and more powerful allies. Your museum will rise in fame, as you will rise in prestige. Every world has new unexplored cities of gold, unrevealed treasures and unencountered exotic civilizations. Be the first to chart these and amaze civilization.
When you have determined the location of a treasure, it's time for a turn-based approach. As a Captain you will lead your crew members to explore newfound land with the help of any resources that you may find on the island. Any foes that the exotic place has to offer can be met with either ruthless combat, pleasant conversation or an interesting mix of the two. After facing the challenges of a Caribbean island, Mayan temple or deep-jungle shrine, you may claim the treasure as your own and return it to your museum.
To grant you a new unexplored world every game, Renowned Explorers will generate and pose new mysteries, challenges, characters and combinations every time you start. Our new game is built to train you in the art of exploration, and it will reward you with deeper mysteries and rare treasure.
