From Ludomotion, the developers behind Unexplored, comes Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy. A Roguelite action-RPG with a strong emphasis on exploration and travel.

From the Steam store page:

 

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is a roguelite action-RPG and prodigious sequel to the critically acclaimed indie gem, Unexplored. Leave the Dungeon of Doom behind and venture into a vast, wondrous world as you embark on a heroic quest to destroy the mysterious Staff of Yendor.

Explore beautiful landscapes and discover hidden marvels. Encounter magical creatures and dangerous foes. Make brave choices and put your faith in good fortune. Featuring a unique legacy system, advanced procedural generation technology, and rich, generative storytelling, Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is an adventure like no other.

 

Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer’s Legacy is a completely different beast than its predecessor. With Unexplored we experimented with new ways of generating procedural dungeons. We wanted levels to feel as though they were designed by hand, rather than by an algorithm.

The experiment succeeded beyond our expectations and we’re extremely proud that our humble indie game has received widespread recognition from critics. Most notably, PC Gamer, Rock Paper Shotgun, and Vice Waypoint all featured Unexplored as part of their respective Game of the Year articles.

 

With Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy, by using both new and improved development tools/technology, the introduction of an array of original features and mechanics, and by applying an eye-catching art style, we're continuing to build on the solid foundations we established with the development of the original Unexplored.

So while the sequel will, like its predecessor, be able to deliver unexpected surprises after hundreds of hours, it will be a much richer, more immersive, and even more expansive experience. We want players to escape into a world that has a real sense of exploration and wonder, with captivating stories and adventures unique to every different hero.
