In The Wager you are an explorer, going head-to-head with the sinister Sir Lester Marwood. You have to prove yourself the best explorer over the course of one year, by discovering the most treasures and making the most money out of your discoveries. But there are many dangers along the way!

We had a lot of plans for The Wager which we couldn't fit into 72 hours and so now, after adding a ton of new content and features, we're ready to show you the final release. Changes include:

  • Many more unique events that happen both on land and sea.
  • New dangers such as seafaring diseases.
  • Helpful upgrades to improve your vessel.
  • Numerous bugfixes and visual improvements.
  • New, improved music.
  • Automatic updates to the latest version.
  • Save/Load games!
  • A whole suite of updates for 1.2, listed here!

The Wager is our second game. Like March of the Rorgers, it was also made originally as part of the Ludum Dare contest, you can still download the original version completed in 72 hours.
