Renowned Explorers is a tactical adventure game.
Once you start a New Game, you are allowed to pick one of four captains and two more assistants. To unlock other characters, you must finish several Expeditions on the World Map. Each captain has its own unique bonuses, whilst every character has different Stats, Skills and Traits.
You can choose to play in either Discovery or Adventure Mode. In Discovery Mode you may save your game at any time, however your score will not be counted toward Leaderboard and you will not get any Achievements.
The goal of the game is to overcome your rival-in-expeditions Rivaleux. To do that you have to finish five different Expeditions and gather as much Treasures as possible and collect Renown.
