Curious Expedition 2 is a roguelike expedition simulation videogame set in the late 19th century, developed by Berlin-based indie studio Maschinen-Mensch. It’s the follow-up to the original Curious Expedition, which was selected by Rock, Paper, Shotgun as “Best Roguelike Game of 2016”.
It means the game is still in development, but we decided to give access to some players in advance, so they can give us their feedback and help us make a better game. This process is similar to the one we used for the original Curious Expedition, which received 30 feature updates while in Early Access.

No. Since the Closed Alpha is still a work in progress, which is not representative of what the final game will be like, we kindly ask you to avoid streaming or publishing videos of it.
The game will come out in 2020.
