Exploration is a strategy-simulation game set during the Age of Sail. From the time of Vasco da Gama and Columbus (the late 1400s) to the French Revolution (1789), you are put in charge of a nation's imperial destiny. This means financing voyages, assembling crews, sending out land and sea expeditions, founding colonies, and occasionally engaging other European powers for global dominance.

Exploration may seem familiar to players of Civilization, Colonization, Conquest of the New World, Gold of the Americas, and even Sid Meier's Pirates!, as they borrow from exploration and cover a similar topic.

Exploration was one of the first games to be released by new publisher Interactive Magic back in the fall of 1995.

It was no coincidence that this first release so closely resembled some classic MicroProse games like Pirates! or Colonization. Interactive Magic boss Wild Bill Stealey co-founded MicroProse with legendary designer Sid Meier in the early 1980s; I-Magic was his attempt to recapture that MicroProse Magic all over again.
