Alpharrrrrr: Caribbean! Boards Steam Early Access

The concept of 'Mount & Blade with pirates and pirate ships' is probably enough to sell a fair few people on a game, but what if that's not enough? What if they need more? What if they demand razzmatazz? This problem calls for dramatic punctuation. Bang on an exclamation and bosh wallop, we have Caribbean! and the Internet falls over itself in excitement. Snowbird's piratical…

Masters Of A Pirate World: Caribbean!

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…

Feature: Learn the Shard way

Eador – Masters of a Broken World review

The shards of Eador’s Broken World drift in space, waiting to be conquered by a commander versed in turn-based combat, RPG levelling, questing and looting, and town management. Fortunately, despite my extreme cowardice and feeble frame, I am just such a commander, and after many hours of play, I’ve finally decided wot I think.

Impressions: Eador – Masters Of The Broken World

Eador: Masters of the Broken World will be released into our very own fractured realm later this month and I’ve spent a few hours with a preview copy and had many of my expectations defied. Is it more of a King’s Bounty than a hero’s swordsmanship and spell-biffing, or is it something entirely different? I’m still not entirely sure, but I’m looking forward to finding…

Break Time: Eador – Masters Of The Broken World

I was talking to someone about Crusader Kings II last weekend and about twenty minutes into a hand-waving sermon about how brilliant it is, I realised I'd described it as a turn-based strategy game. It isn't turn-based, of course, but I spend so much time pausing and pondering that I've managed to convince myself that it is. The I started thinking - what was the…

Mr Fix-It: Eador – Masters Of The Broken World

I wonder what it's like being the Master of a Broken World. Probably quite difficult I'd imagine, but some folk would probably argue it's better than serving in a fully functioning world. Snowbird are offering a chance to find out how you'd cope as just such a master with their upcoming strategy game, Eador: Masters of the Broken World. The world has been shattered and…

Feature: Great Gaming Cocktails, Volume One

Parley Of The Land: Caribbean! Interview

Caribbean! is Mount and Blade with pirates, or at least that's what I'd be telling everyone if I was making it. To learn more about what the game will actually include, how naval combat will be implemented and what kind of rum cocktails should be consumed while playing, I buried a list of questions in a treasure chest and gave a map marked with the…

Excitable Archipelagos: Caribbean!

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…
