Cryptic Explorers is a macabre game, with a unique world and aesthetic, filled with dark goddesses and occult technologies.

Now the universe of Cryptic Explorers has written lore, which we will be releasing by section, one section each week, until completed.

The first entry in the Black Lore - the Maw of Thanatos - is now available on our website:

"In the mountains of Northern Iraq, there is a cave with several names in the local folklore, usually referred to as فم الموت—the Mouth of Death. It is regarded by the various people inhabiting the region as the gateway to the underworld or as the place where Alexander the Great sealed up the monstrous nations of Gog and Magog in the Land of Darkness..."

Note: Our website is currently being reborn, and quite sparse in content. As we add more lore for Cryptic Explorers, and announce our second game, more will be added.

Edit: Consolidated lore posts into one thread!

The second entry in the Black Lore - the Nauticus Think Tank - is now available on our website:

"From their home base in Singapore, the shadowy think tank known as Nauticus acts as a major power behind the throne for a coalition of international corporations, which has infiltrated and overtaken the governments of Southeast Asia..."

Hey Daniel -

Yes, we are Kickstarting again this year, likely mid-year.

Once all the lore is released (a few weeks), we have a 30 page short story completed, are putting together a new prototype with art/mechanics changes to show off, a set of detailed 3D printed miniatures as physical prototypes of the minis, and more.

Once all that is released and on our site, and we have run some advertising, we will be re-launching on Kickstarter with a pretty low goal, as we also reworked the numbers for producing/manufacturing the game.

Our studio is also working on another game that we will be announcing soon, which we are excited about. It is already complete and tested as a game, and is just awaiting artwork. It is also significantly smaller than Cryptic Explorers.

Thank you for asking!

The fourth entry in the Black Lore - the Realms of Death - is now available on our website:

"From the second wave of Cryptonautic exploration, Nauticus saw its first gains in objects and information from the other place, including strange artifacts with amazing properties, and reports of an odd kind of organization underlying the seemingly chaotic realms they had visited..."

The fifth and final entry in the Black Lore - the Goddesses - is now available on our website.

While this entry completes the Black Lore in its basic form, we will be revisiting it from time to time to add new information and discoveries, including a set of short stories that expand the Cryptic Explorers universe.

"The Goddesses are the cryptic forces that rule over the chaotic Realms of Death, wherein they guard Its secrets eternally..."
