How many times have you heard, "You won't know if you like it until you try it"? There are a lot of times that a sense of adventure gets fueled by a wondering about the unknown. That's the same feeling that gives Unexplored its appeal. You never know what's around the corner. See a potion? You'll never know what it does until you drink it. Does that shiny new sword look tempting? It could be an epic dragon slayer or a cursed relic. That next room over? It might be filled with treasure or a huge monster just itching to send you to your maker. No two games are ever the same in this rogue-like dungeon crawler. Another nice thing about Unexplored is that it's almost tailor-made for gamers of all skill levels. It has simple controls easy enough for anyone to get the hang of. The keyboard and mouse combination feels natural, and inventory management is a cinch. The game is challenging enough for more experienced gamers while still keeping things fun for beginners. Sure, you'll die a lot, but you always learn from it and can push a little further the next time around. And thanks to the game's randomness, you never feel like you're just going through the motions and repeating yourself. Unexplored isn't perfect and it's not the most polished game. There are still a few bugs here and there to iron out, and it will even crash a couple of times during playthrough. But even with the occasional glitch, it's still a hard game to put down.
