The development of Expeditions: Conquistador continues following the first successful Kickstarter financing in September 2012: first stretch goal implemented, new animations, larger developer team, new UI, backers’ forum, brand-new Facebook fan page and invitation to vote on Steam Greenlight

Copenhagen, Denmark; December 20 2012 – Thanks to the successful crowdfunding financing through Kickstarter in September 2012, the Danish indie developer Logic Artists is working all out on the completion of their PC game Expeditions: Conquistador. In the tactical RPG, players take on the role of a Spanish conquistador and must prove both their diplomatic and strategic skills. Two complete campaigns, 100 random events, ten character classes, 28 characteristic weapons, and a variety of character skills will be finished in time for the release in late February 2013.

Vote via Steam Greenlight

Interested gamers and fans can now vote on Steam Greenlight for Expeditions: Conquistador via the following link: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=93060491

In particular in the last three months, the visuals in Expeditions: Conquistador have been revised and user interface has been redesigned. With the addition of two new developers to the team, all of the animations from the first alpha version were able to be improved or replaced by new animations which look significantly better, especially in combat situations. In addition, the frequently requested passive companion skills will be included in the release, although they were only planned as a stretch goal and the funding goal for them was missed by just under $ 2000.

A second alpha version of the game is already for supporters of the project in the official backers’ forum, where some 300 actively discuss with the developer team and test. As of now, all news will also be shared with all fans on the brand-new Facebook page for Expeditions: Conquistador. Discussions and comments on the current status of the project are welcome.
