Masters Of A Pirate World: Caribbean!

By Jim Rossignol on June 18th, 2013.


Eador devs Snowbird have started talking about their secondary project, Caribbean! which we mentioned all the way back here. That’s Caribbean! in the sense of Pirates! rather than me being particularly excited about it, you understand. Nevertheless it’s an hugely ambitious project, allowing people to tackle that region of the world in the 17th century in a manner similar to the way Mount & Blade tackles medieval Eurasia. They’ve had a bit of a struggle with the game, and explain: “Having started with ‘Mount & Blade with ships’ concept over time we almost switched to making a war and historical colonization simulator.”

The beta, which was previously flagged up on their forums, has bene much delayed, but is now likely to happen soon, and could be worth keeping an eye on. You can also play it at Rezzed(!) So that’s nice.

Parley Of The Land: Caribbean! Interview

His responses, stuffed in a bottle, were floating in my bathtub this morning. Among other things, I found out that the governor’s daughter isn’t quite the catch I’d been led to believe.

Excitable Archipelagos: Caribbean!

By Adam Smith on July 2nd, 2012.

Games about pirates sometimes feel the need to exclaim their titles, as if rushing into a room and excitedly waving their arms, jumping up and down, screaming in your face. ‘Pirates’, they yell, spittle flecking your bewildered visage, ‘piiiiirates’! Or, in this case, they’re bellowing ‘Caribbean’, which makes it really hard for me to work out which vowel to elongate. I guess it would be ‘Caribbeaaaaaan’!. Anyway, Caaaaaribbean! is a newly announced game from Snowbird Game Studios of Mount & Blade: With Fire & Sword, and it uses the same engine for a piratical game, with naval combat, boarding operations and sieges. More screenshots below.
