    Sounds interesting.

    :d1p: if they make a Franklin Expedition scenario.

    Although it does seem pretty much EXACTLY like the Port Royale games...

    Will it include realistic buggery simulation?

    Disappointed, the true path to becoming an admiral should involve never actually sailing, spending all your time sucking off politicians and investing your money into fancier uniforms and the shiniest paint for making your ship and crew look pristine come inspection time.



    Seriously though, idea sounds cool, let's see how it goes.

    I want to point out that the the captain in the video was giving the order "Ship to ladeboard!" instead of "Ship to port!", which suggests the developers actually did some research. I liked that little detail.

    Would be blast if not so fictionalized and devs made some research and not put XIX century union jack onto XVI ships, not to mention nobody even dreamed about blue navy uniforms then. Portugal was an ally not enemy of perfidious Albion since 1640 (shame on them) and so on. Would love to play game when you are valiant Captain of Spanish Galleon and blow to hell the Drake and his heretic pirate cohorts but what can you expect.

    This is the guy who delivered Vietnam '65 and Afghanistan '11. He knows what he's doing.

    They're English though, so that goes without saying. You might as well just flog them for being English.

    It came out today. I think it's pretty good. It's got some rough edges still, like anything on day one.

    The main thing to watch out for is how if your sick bay is full, then anyone who gets wounded automatically dies. This can be a major pain in the ass early on if your one officer dies that way.

    But in general this turned out pretty much how I expected from everything I'd read about it. They got the pacing right, where you're under just the right amount of pressure to decide what to do in the short term and what to do in the long term.

    A shame they decided to go for those mobile game, cartoony graphics. Would've been interested otherwise.

    Wow, we've got ourselves a fucking art critic here. Do you write for Cahiers du cinéma by any chance? I can't see real good, is this Francois Truffaut over here? Do you do appraisals for items on auction by Sotheby's?

    Exactly what were you expecting? You wanted them to spend $100 million on using the Frostbite engine to make every wrinkle on the old sailors' manboobs show up in crystal clarity? Or you wanted them to make it faux-1980s pixel art so that you could identify it with your childhood, the last time in your life when you didn't hate yourself?

    What kind of graphics is a game with this budget supposed to have? If you've got a better idea, you could probably make a lot of money out of it.

    Aesthetics doesn't require much of a budget, when you can afford to hire someone to make assets and aren't limited to programmer art and stock assets then the visual style is more or less up to the artist. Certainly the standard small indie game couldn't hope to achieve photo-realism or hand animated cartoon sprites, or any such extravagances, but that doesn't mean it can't be pleasing to the eye.

    And yes, this game does have the look of a phone game. Even the UI is as if straight from some obscure free-to-play phone title.

    The game is only being sold on Steam. The UI clearly is intended for using a mouse. Anyone who has actually played the game knows that. The developer previously made Vietnam '65 and Afghanistan '11 which were obviously not mobile games.

    So what is your agenda here? Why are you so extremely butthurt? Are you yet another failed indie game developer and you're trying to tear someone else down in your impotent rage?

    Vietnam '65 had a mobile port and it initially used that horrid mobile UI on PC too.
    Also their game Carrier Deck has mobile version.

    Afganistan'11 got removed from Apple store because some bullshit "no games where antagonists are real world organisations" -rule.

    As Burning Bridges said, it looks like they are trying for "lego aesthetic", but the shitty knock off version that your parents bought you cos they cant afford real lego.
