Dear community,

Thank you for supporting us during the Early Access stage of development. This is game is yours as much as ours.

Game Features

  • Always something to do
    Three regions, dozens of islands, hundreds of quests!
  • Free roam
    Limitless sailing in real time - use Global Map only if you want to!
  • Pirate cooperation
    Share the world of Tempest between you and your friends. Pirate, trade and do quests together, or declare war to each other and watch the ocean burn!
  • Pure singleplayer
    Want to be a lone sea wolf? Multiplayer is only an option, the game is originally designed for singleplayer mode.
  • Seafarer’s adventures
    Buy ships, upgrade your ships, decorate your ships!
  • Being a pirate: Marketer or Racketeer?
    Buy something cheap and sell it at a higher price… Or plunder galleons, sink warships, destroy forts!
  • Fight huge monsters
    Kraken’s sea-friends are waiting for you!
  • Not only cannons
    Use mystical crystals to escape the enemy’s cannonballs, bring down meteorites onto your opponent or call a huge octopus to your aid!
  • Create a great, loyal crew
    Level up your pirates, let them grow from sailor boys to skilled old salts!

Hey Captain! Now that you’ve got the Jolly Roger fluttering in the wind over your ship, you’re ready to rove the seas, take on merchant ships loaded with booty and storm formidable fortresses. Set sail and get your hands on all those legendary treasures that are just waiting for the picking!
When we created Tempest, we focused on the most thrilling part of pirate life – sea battles.
As you navigate the dangerous waters of the game you won’t just catch up with merchants, but you will encounter fellow pirates, creepy followers of a mysterious cult and terrible mythical monsters: Kraken, Leviathan and other infamous creatures.
Your ship – the pride and joy of any freebooter – can be customized in many ways. You are free to change almost everything – from the color of your flag and sails to the ship’s hull and figurehead.
Of course, there are plenty of weapons to choose from for every battle, including cannons, mortars, flame throwers and so on. Also there are special tools ready to help you to rig the ship for any purpose. However, you can win the most valuable artifacts only by finishing the multilevel quests called “legends”.

Good hunting.

Tempest reviews and comments

Currently my favorite game. Why?... Because it really fun to loot ships together with friends as if there was no tomorrow. Take everything you can get but don't give anything back her xD system technically The game is very successful, simple menus and control. But you also have to think about pimping with the ship. For arcade players who just blindly balloon without thinking about this game is nothing. The system with the first sails scrapping away next to the crew to baller down that you can enable is very good. Or you can also easily ball away the enemy ship as you want. I like it very much how you can retool the ships, depending on the taste and mood. Big world and a lot of opponents really nice. From time to time it is easy to bite into the keyboard;) Pros. -combat system-ego perspective when driving-big world-mozing ship-lots of fights-much to the next-islands with rewards when you do the tasks on it-graphic (good but not top, it is probably because on the handy almost 1:1 it is the same game)-there are really many items to improve or beautify-makes together really laune-not too easy and not too heavy-free driving in ego perspective-MONSTER! Yeah really fat monster:)-a lot of different missions-gives a lot of positive ... Negative. -At times buckery behavior when caping-graphic is solala-from time to time at ultra, graphic bugs with water-possibly install more playable ships. Especially large battleships by and large simply a game. I think I have MR. GIBBS from curse of the Caribbean to my ship found:) Fit, funny and makes really laune continue to play.

Very very very nice Game! Buy Recommendation: Anyway! With Tempest, you can have a lot of Fun in Single Player and Multiplayer! However, there are also Content that I lack for Balancing Purposes:-too few playable cards--currently there are only 3 stk-they are extremely large only would be really class (especially more Quests)---more Saleable on-board Cannons in the Shops--About the Time you can find only 3 veri Edene onboard Weapon types in the Shops: Short Kannons, Long Cannon and Field Snakes. Other Cannons such as the Bombardier can apparently only be found by sinking ships-More Power for Artifacts-artifacts are practically the "Special Weapons" of your Ship such as: Mortars, Firestorm Or Boarding Cannon. But for the fact that the "Mana" regenerates relatively slowly and the Costs of such Special Artifacts are very high, they do too little Damage. You can upgrade Artifacts, but I only know 2 "Upgrade stones" to buy. -Where to go with too much Stuff? (Storage capacity and Places)--If you have too much Stuff you don't need, you can store them for bad Times. But where to go? Currently, if you have stored something in a City and then some Quests, Mini-events, Battles were timed, you quickly forget where the Camp was. A Marker on the Map-where you stored what would be very important for future updates. Trading system--The Trading System is very well balanced, EVERY are the Goods that contain Shops-something to complain about. So it happens that more and, above all, newer Goods in the Shops would be more lucrative. Nit only the negative-but also the positive Aspects have to be considered: Sing players and Multiplayers are the hammer! -Extremist liquid Multiplayer! (Even with 2k Line without Any problems, lags o.s. playable) quests are very well balanced-you have something to do! -very large Maps that you can navigate 100% Yourself-functioning faction System-no Describable Savegames (i.e. you have 1 fixed profile) to prevent Abuse-large Selection of Design objects (Deco) of the Ship-a well-functioning AI (Is also Rarely nowadays at most Games)-no Boarding Compulsion including Freedom of Action-3 versch. "Ammunition types" (Anti-sail, Anti-Crew, Anti-fuselage) with respective balanced properties-Long Battles-regular Updates It is Recommended to support this Early Access title!
