Pirates of the Stormy Sea
A downloadable game for Windows
Hey, thanks for looking into the demo of Pirates of the Stormy Sea.
POTSS is a roguelike pirate ship sim inspired by games like Sid Meier's Pirates, FTL (Faster Than Light) and RimWorld. Take command of a sailing ship trying to escape from the British navy. Search for clues pointing to a save heaven while upgrading your ship and crew. Every battle on your way will be unique, every run will feel different and every time you die you will have to start anew.
What makes POTSS unique is the combination of in depth ship and crew customization with strategic battles against a cunning enemy AI and a largely randomly generated game map. And you can take a look at the current state of the game because there is a playable Demo of POTSS available.
This is a feature demo showcasing navigation, ship and crew upgrades and extensive battle mechanics like fire, boarding maneuvers and many things more. There is no such thing as a learning curve, yet, just a basic tool tip guide to explain the UI and mechanics. Balancing is not done yet and some weapons are a bit to strong. The finished game is going to contain additional mechanics like sail damage, fire management, different weapons and boarding deterrents and so on... . A more detailed overview on planned features and how the final game is going to look like can be found under this link:
