I know exactly why you’re reading this post. And it’s exactly the same reason I clicked on the video. You’re in for a terrible disappointment, I’m afraid.
But once that’s done you might become semi-excited anew, this time at the prospect of a semi-casual hex-based strategy game about pirates. It’s an XBLA jobbie that’s coming to PC, and while it’s trying a bit too hard in the sound and vision departments, I reckon it could be kinda fun in practice. I do have a soft-spot for leftfield, lo-fi strategy. It’s possibly too silly and definitely pushing the Looney Tunes sound effects a bit too hard, but I can imagine myself spending a happy ten minutes bombing merry hell out of Kieron or someone of an evening. AND IN THE GAME.
