The Curious Expedition – Pixel Art For All
This new release from developer Maschinen-Mensch includes all the image files of the game which has become noted for its dazzling pixel art style.
Maschinen-Mensch’s co-founder, Johannes Kristmann, said:
“We have been successful with the game beyond our hopes and now want to give something back to the creative game development community. This is why we have decided to release our game’s content as open-source.
We would like to encourage you to use the many image files for your own prototypes or gamejams. Your usage of our content can be completely unrelated to modding The Curious Expedition, as long as you adhere to the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 license”.
The release includes full modding support and Steam Workshop integration as well. With the available image and script files, remixing and creating new content for the game should prove to be an entertaining project.
