The Curious Expedition - ByteRiot

We've been looking forward to this moment for a looong time! We're happy to finally share our big modding and achievements update with you! :)

We have a new modding menu where you can select any amount of mods you want to run in your game
Steam Workshop support. You can subscribe to mods on steam and they will get automatically downloaded into your game. You can also upload new mods directly from the game and see the current mod ratings. Steam is not required for mods though
No coding required! We have a simple text format which allows to add any new content. These are the same tools that we used during development. Add items, characters, enemies, dice, statuses, events, worlds and much more. We went through all our scripts and made sure that they have nice entry points for being moddable.
We made all of our text and image content open source. You can see it at and use it as inspiration for your own mods or games
Access lots of ingame debugging tools which allow you to spawn any entity or run any event on the fly. We actually improved the dev tools so much beyond of what we used during development that we are bit jealous of you now (it's fine though)
We're shipping the game with multiple example mods (including the t-rex, scientific assistant and yakul mods)
We've prepared extensive wiki documentation and tutorials for you to check out at If you have more questions also please join our discord server and chat with us and other modders directly
We created a free extension for the free Visual Studio Code text editor. Go to to download the editor and enter TCE Script in the extension settings to download our plugin. It will give you proper syntax highlighting and search functionality making working with the script files much more convenient.
This is just the start of our modding tools. We're looking forward to your feedback and will add more functionality to support your ideas.

We added over 60 new cool achievements to the game (some of them are secret)
There is a new section in the hall of fame allowing you to see all the achievements and your progress
These achievements are synched to steam achievements, which you can show off on your steam profile. Steam is not required for achievements though
Almost all our achievements track their progress separately for each difficulty level, so once you've mastered easy or medium difficulty, you can try your luck again on a harder difficulty
For now achievements are disabled when mods are enabled
