19th Century roguelike The Curious Expedition embarks on Early Access

Tally ho and all that.

Delightful 19th Century roguelike explore-em-up The Curious Expedition is now available on Steam Early Access, priced £9.89.

The game lets you assemble a team of iconic historical figures, ranging from scientists such as Darwin and Tesla to political figures like Marcus Garvey and Harriet Tubman, and lead them on a randomly generated adventure around the world in search of knowledge, fortune and glory. Along the way you'll have to manage your resources, barter with the people you meet and loot ancient temples.

Also important: you can ride dinosaurs.

Christian reported on the game's alpha back in January, and seemed to take far too much pleasure in setting donkeys on fire.
