A Sandbox-Adventure-Pirate-RPG that takes inspiration from Pirates of the Carribean (2003 video game), FTL: Faster Than Light, and Sid Meier's Pirates but makes certain to stand out on its own.GameplayExplore a massive world with unique islands and landscapes. Discuss rumors and discover the origins of each island by talking to the people that live there
Expect the unexpected when at sea. Events you may be unprepared for may occur such as a foodborne illness among your crew. You'll need to have access to the right supplies and have the experience to keep your ship afloat
A casual but real challenege - While simple to pickup and understand, there are numerous events that only an experienced swashbucklers will be prepared for. This makes the game more satisfying for long term pirates
Thoughtfully executed cutscenes that help to bring the world to life as well as reward pirates that exploreNot specific enough? (Some features may not yet be implemented)Sailing between islands is necessary to expand your control over the world and to increase your reputation
Tending to the morale, hunger, and thirst of your crew will require you to maintain a supply of food/water and consider whether or not rationing food is required during long journeys
Governing islands you've conquered is a difficult responsibility as you will need to solve criminal and economic issues before they get out of hand
Defending your islands from other nations is a full-time job; every other nation is against you... however you can make allies
Purchase larger ships as you fight your way through the sea. Famously powerful vessels such the Galleon and Man of War are but a few of the available ships

Early Access Review "Sid Meier's: Pirates!" -Lite with some Pixel Pirates and a Touch Of Monkey Island humor. It'S more Fun than you'd think. First Impression Video: https://youtu.be/ljmO99IOAo0 Pro:-Clear Gameplay, quick to learn-control goes fluid-Humor and Atmosphere Ensure that you want to discover more Contra:-no Main Quest, Development of the World only via Side orders- Sword Fighting is a Tick too difficult-Ship fights often a DPS race

Early access review a pretty cute little game, but terribly short and repetitive. For the moment, I find that it does not justify its price, but like all EA, do we ever know, a big Maj could happen and change everything? The more: + the simple concept, you play it as on a Flash game, a few minutes and we move on, but it is still distracting + a soundtrack not tasted the least:-Ultra repetitive-no challenge: you will win, and everything crush on your p bar. No suspense. -too expensive in the State.

Product received for free i Read "84% positive reviews", which really makes you think of a nice game, but believe me: NO. I Do not want to say that it is completely unplayable and of bad workmanship, but the repeatability reigns supreme. The whole thing is done at the lowest terms (from the graphics, which is actually also pretty, to the gameplay, where between naval clashes and various quests are ALWAYS repeated, and when I say ALWAYS I mean ALWAYS, the SAME same actions), the same game occupies very few MB, but Why not point to something more thorough and more intense? I'm sorry, but for me it's a No.

Overall interest: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ don't sink is a pirate-themed RPG, close enough to the game pixel piracy. The game is simple to take in hand, fun and rather addictive. We will regret the lifespan a little short... To be seized in the Indies bundle or in direct purchase. Graphics: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ the graphics are not shocking. This is medium-quality 2D pixel art. It's not shocking, but we've known better in this style. Music/sound: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ nothing quite crazy, the music is in the theme and the sounds are adapted. Gameplay: ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆ interesting playability. You manage your crew like a captain, you can recruit pirates, buy boats. Like pixel piracy you have to manage the food and pirate material to make duels. A particularly positive note is the ability to capture, govern and improve cities and the ability to dock a boat in combat. Playability is simple, 100% keyboard possible with 5 keys. Lifespan: ★ ★ ★ ☆ ☆ short life span. I got 100% of the achievements in 2H. It is up to you to restart the game that generates random cards in higher difficulty. We had a quick tour of the possibilities. Note some pretty buggy quests.
