Best played with the lights turned off and the volume turned up, Black Sails is a creepy and mysterious point-and-click adventure game.

A shipwreck. Having lost all hope, two survivors cling to wreckage, trying to survive a few more minutes in the raging sea. Until another ship appears. Hoping for rescue, they are calling out, but nobody answers. They manage to go on board. Will this be their rescue? Or their grave?

Inspired by a true story, the player experiences a journey into the darkest abyss of the human soul until he cannot tell between truth and fiction anymore.

Having been released in Germany a few years ago, gathering much acclaim for its focused story and strong plot, Black Sails is now available with full English localization for the first time ever. We hope you'll enjoy it.

Black Sails - The Ghost Ship reviews and comments

The Protogonostin lands with a Guy on an abandoned Ship. A Ghost Ship. Uuuh. The Two Have to escape somehow so that they don't die at Sea. The Ship is explored, Items are collected (a Harpoon fits Loosely in your Pocket! With whom not?!?) Strange Diary entries and strange Noises. The Protogonist is tormented with Visas from the Ship's Past. A Girl would probably have been kidnapped on the Ship and terrible Things would have been done with her. (What exactly was done to her doesn't really become clear. One plays with the Thought that one had done an experiment on her And killed her the Ship Occupancy on it) Shortly before fleeing She then seems to lose her Mind and talks tangled stuff. She seems to be the Girl from her Visions who had simply supplanted all this. In the End, you have three different Options to Choose from at the End of the Story. Newspaper Clippings are then shown In the End credits. The Game sounded very interesting from the Description. Unfortunately, far too short for my Taste! You could have got more out of the Story. One could have illuminated the Past more, for example. Who was the Girl? Why was she kidnapped? What had been done with her and who or what helped her Escape? The promised Horror failed to materialize, just like the Tone in some Places. Not all "clickable" Places and Paths could be recognized, even with the "Auxiliary" Button. Another Minus Point is the Writing of the Game: Secuted Typeface. Personally, I had a Problem reading them. The Game would have actually earned a "solala thumb" (if there was one here). You can get your own Picture of it. But only if you get the Game on Offer. At the Full Price, you'd be annoyed for the Money that's given away.

Nice Point & Click Mystery Adventure. The Graphics are a bit Old baking according to the present Day, but still ok for a simple Adventure. The Sound is accordingly only so ok. The few Syncron Voices, on the other hand, are really good and spoken of by well-known People. The Sound can sometimes fail, usually announcing a later crash. So You should save more often. The 3D control is ok, the Camera is automatically guided. The Paths are short and you actually move quite well. In a few Situations, you could overlook something. Most Of the time, a hotspot display helps by Space, but I didn't get 2 or 3 Items on like that. For example, I overlooked a Dietrich on a Bookshelf in the middle of the Room. Otherwise, however, everything is technically ok as far as possible. The Story is dealt with relatively quickly for the short Adventure. One experiences a Shipwreck and ends up on another Ship for two, which seems to be unmanned. So You then try to explore the Ship, experience a few strange Things with you, later you have to bring yourself to the Rescue. The horror or Mystery factor is much less pronounced than I had previously thought, but at least it contributes to the Tension, because otherwise you would only be occupied with the Rum Fumbling in the individual Ship Rooms. As I said, the Adventure is short, there are only a few Rooms where you move back and in dn. A little longer with more Frame Action might have been nice, otherwise such a small Ship doesn't give any kind of hours of Fun and Excitement, at some point it will surely get rather boring. For me, it was definitely worth it as I bought it in a Bundle. The Puzzles weren't that heavy either, actually you can manage the Game like that. I find this very positive, because otherwise you can quickly run around and then also arise frustration, because you don't think as crosswise as the game Developers and then you have to constantly look into a Solution. + Voiceover + Puzzles + Story + control o Graphics o Sound o game time-Soundbug rating: 6.5/10
