"The real Moon, if you could reach it and survive,
would in a deep and deadly sense be just like anywhere
No man would find an abiding
strangeness on the Moon
unless he were the
sort of man who could find it in his own back garden."
- C. S. Lewis, Preface to The Dark Tower and Other Stories
What is Expedition?
Expedition is a game about the human sense of wonder and
discovery; it lets you take a group of men and journey into the
unknown, playing inside a detailed sandbox of the XV century
where you will be able to roam the world, discover, colonize
and trade. The game doesn't reward you with a new discovery on
every step, it instead requires from you methodical mapping and
cartographic exercise to find these hidden wonders..
"The New World" Scenario
In "The New World", the first scenario
available for Expedition, you become a XVth century Spanish
explorer; you have to stock up an expedition to the New World,
travel there, and then found colonies in the name of the crown.
In your quest you will find marvelous places and face friendly
and hostile natives throughout the New World seeking to obtain
their riches for your kingdom.
The Development Model
All in-development versions of Expedition are free to
download; we encourage you to try it and contribute to the
development if you like it :) we have worked hard to take it to
its current status, however... there's still a lot to do :)
After studying and estimating the efforts required to
finish the game, we realized that the only way to make
Expedition a reality using resources from the Internet people
(You, our main funding source) is to divide the project into
several "facets", in order to launch incremental
versions playable on their own.
We have divided the project into 18 facets, you can find more
info about each of them below. You can also vote for your
preferred facet and discuss the roadmap here.
Your contributions are highly valued! Help us make this a
