The key to most of our games, and many games, is that they give you the opportunity to tell your own story, as oppossed to you know reading someone else's story, and in that process you're actually learning something.
Our hope is to deliver an incredibly fun and compelling game that will give the fans more than what they've been waiting for, and show a whole new generation of gamers how much fun it is to live the life of a pirate!
Our goal has been to stay true to what people most love about the original Pirates! while upgrading, enhancing, and in some cases, re-inventing the game to make it a great experience for today's gamers.
In those days we actually did a lot of our research by getting children's picturebooks of the topic cus that would really highlight what are the cool things of this topic. And that would give us some visual ideas but also kinda tell us what the highlight in the game was.
I really encourage people to have an interest outside of games. You know, games have to be about something, they can't be about other games necessarily, so I hope people have an interest in history, or science or music, or whatever it is that they can bring their own interest to gaming and expand what we do, not just make games about games that already have been made.
