Land Ho! Windward Comes To Port On May 12

Windward [official site] (also known Sid Meiers Pirates: The Shippening, also known as You Sunk My Pirate Ship) tells a simple story of a man, his ship, and their attempt to systematically destroy everybody else within walking distance of the beach. Now after three years in development, the isometric ship-em-up, which is being developed by indie outfit ArenMook, is at long last getting an official release on May 12th.

RPS afficionados might remember we played the game in alpha back in 2012, setting sail with our old faithful Titanic 2 in a fearsome battle against the ocean’s greatest foe: Fartzilla. These procedurally-generated oceans have come along since then, with ArenMook promising a fully modifiable map that changes as you establish new digs and raid towns. You can also go the peaceful route and focus instead on diplomacy, if like me you have a deep interest in role-playing as Canadian bureaucrats.
