Expedition v0.3 Released!
« on: August 16, 2011, 05:34:24 AM »
Hello all!

Expedition will be a turn based sandbox of the XV Century World. It will take the best from great series like Uncharted Waters, Pirates!, Seven Cities of Gold and Colonization, along with a mix of historical elements of its own. In Expedition you will be able to explore the whole world, trade, combat, settle and discover wonders.

After weeks of development, version 0.3 now ready for the public! This is the first version released by Slashware Interactive as an independent game studio. Remember you can support us by acquiring your supporter license and branding your copy with your name! http://slashware.net/blog/donate/

Saw this a while back. Very interesting, highly polished. Seemed a bit overwhelming to me but I'll give it a go when I have a spare evening.
