The developers of Curious Expedition have had a heady winter. After their devlog landed on TigSource and blew up across the gaming media, the two-person team won a €50,000 grant from the German government to finish developing the game, an exploration roguelike inspired by pioneers and the fiction of Jules Verne. Riad Djemili and Johannes Kistmann then left their day jobs to work full-time on Curious Expedition and bring it to retail.
