Awsome !

That battle GUI makes it look like a single-player MMO. Not sure how I feel about that.

Hi would you consider a wii u version in the future, now that wii usupports Unity?
Rabbids4eva Apr 8, 2013 @ 11:56am 
Say, since it's still in ALPHA state, once greenlit, you could release through Early Access

The music gives me a monkey-island feel to the theme. Also the game looks very well done and I love the look of combat, especially with the pause screen to double check said abilities in combat. It certainly looks quite impressive and you have done your job in making the game look presentable, especially as it's still in Alpha state which is one hell of a achievement.

Once I have seen sneak previews of the planned naval battles I will review this.

Seems to me to be something like a cross between Sid Meier's Pirates! and KotOR. Defnitely potential there, but whether or not it'd actually be satisfying to play is a whole other matter. If you drop the ball with navigating the overworld, resources, character advancement, or any one central thing, the whole would fall apart.

Let's see, what have we here? Some appealing visuals and the skeleton of a robust combat system. Potential? Certainly. But it's much too early (at least judging by the info we have so far) to tell whether this will be any good.

Is there going to be character creation?
Thundergrunge Mar 13, 2013 @ 7:06am 
I like pirates. Therefor I am following this game. There aren't nearly enough good pirate games and fortunately AC:IV has been announced but still: I want more pirate games where I actually am the pirate. Where I can pillage and plunder. Although this does not seem to be the focus of this game. I am giving it a thumbs up for now.

thanks for supporting Linux

A pirate game and.. no ship? Why? Many people are waiting for a Pirate RPG, just like the game of Bethesda "sea dogs". It would be nice to explore the world with your own ship. You know.. pirate stuff.
man0cels0 Mar 4, 2013 @ 5:51pm 
The combat system was very uninpressive to me. Perhaps it'd be better by being more action oriented... Graphics are definetely stunning though.

I'm not sure whether all three Benjamin Longnames were the same guy.. but if I were the 3rd one, seeing two corpses at the feet of someone else.. I would not rush towards them. I would grab my guns or run away and hide for a bit. I do hope the finished version will have more realistic AI.

ahoy me matys! she will be gettin ma vote!
intok Mar 2, 2013 @ 10:43pm 
Looks more like swashbuckling then pirating... Where be the ships wenches and rum matey?
Mr. Lister The Sister Fister Mar 1, 2013 @ 7:25pm 
Needs female pirates. Also, lots of humor is good for a pirate game.
canerkemik Feb 8, 2013 @ 10:45pm 
ı like it. +1

(ı hope there is defensive skills like dodge)
Subvert Games  [author] Feb 8, 2013 @ 6:08am 
@pshaetkilh no,you can pause it only if you really need time to think (e.g: battles with lots of enemies). Everything is realtime and not turn based.
๖Pshaeatkilh Feb 8, 2013 @ 5:41am 
Do you really have to pause anytime you want to switch with another attack ?
Cyrus Jan 31, 2013 @ 1:52am 
oh and this arena,this must be in the released version too :D
Cyrus Jan 31, 2013 @ 1:49am 
the combat video had a really nice KOTOR feeling and I love the graphics :D you should make the combat/the exchange of blows,and to compensate the CD's on abilities too/ a little bit faster and "borrow" the naval battles mechanics from AC3/the only thing they've done right/ and this game is gonna be a BLAST :D
stylez Jan 13, 2013 @ 8:50am 
Dual-wield pistol AND cutlass? I'll take eight!
Wo0d Glue Jan 12, 2013 @ 2:29pm 
Looks darn awesome.
Statickai [Syan] Jan 7, 2013 @ 4:22pm 
Will you add Ships and a Ship combat system?
Perhaps an open world to explore.
Jerry Jan 5, 2013 @ 5:31pm 
Ehrm....no.
Fenrir007 Jan 5, 2013 @ 8:51am 
Still no parry and dodge?
Akriloth2160 Dec 30, 2012 @ 3:59am 
About time someone else started making an open-ended pirate-themed game. Hope this one turns out well!
straider Dec 18, 2012 @ 1:28am 
Fly our flag, we teach them fear...under jolly roger!!! Looks cool! Multi-Player would be nice!
Soah Dec 17, 2012 @ 10:55pm 
When you say "your choices matter," I think "Mass Effect 3" and don't believe you. Why is it necessary to mention my choices mattering? If they didn't, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't play.
Pervy Sage Dec 9, 2012 @ 1:29pm 
I'd love to play a P-RPG, but it has to become good! Give it your all, please, developers!
Roland of the Deep Dec 6, 2012 @ 2:05pm 
Wow, this remins me of KotOR... o.o
Virgo Mutation Dec 6, 2012 @ 1:52pm 
Full "Steam" ahead indeed!
The King Dec 3, 2012 @ 11:22pm 
Make it multiplayer.
Sharktoothicus Dec 1, 2012 @ 7:00am 
Erm... what, cicero? A lady pirate would be strong, have good reflexes, special awareness, studies show that women have higher pain thresholds than men, and they wouldn't have sat around all their life.
cicero Nov 30, 2012 @ 1:16pm 
Please please tell me that if lady pirates are added that realistically lowered stats for upper body strength, reflexes, spacial awareness, pain threshholds, and endurance will be preset?
lemon² Nov 20, 2012 @ 11:05am 
Like KOTOR. Cool. Upvoted.
Chenzzz Nov 20, 2012 @ 3:14am 
Oh man if this was an mmo......
bleating Nov 18, 2012 @ 5:19pm 
Please please tell me that being a lady pirate will be an option?
Domkis Nov 18, 2012 @ 12:09pm 
Yeah this is pretty awsome will this be free?
Fenrir007 Nov 11, 2012 @ 8:51am 
Gonna agree with some people here - combat will be great with parry and dodge.
FRAPS on my Google Nov 11, 2012 @ 2:26am 
Not sure if putting "Full Steam Ahead" in your post is clever pun or just coincidental.

Either way, I'll throw an upvote your way.
diabLo-Designz Nov 10, 2012 @ 4:14pm 
Pirates=Upvote...
an adorable puppy Nov 10, 2012 @ 2:08pm 
graphics could use some work, but can't vote against a pirate rpg
TF3: Scoutcest Apocalypse Nov 3, 2012 @ 12:49am 
Always green light pirates. Always.
sara_bear Oct 29, 2012 @ 5:30pm 
My only gripe is the character some how looks swaney and baby muscled, but with giant calfs. Put some sholders on him please.
AirWhale1 Oct 29, 2012 @ 2:30am 
I really like the look of the combat from the video, but can you post another one showing more? I want to know that you can fight smart and defensively.
marceneiro_do_amor Oct 28, 2012 @ 5:14pm 
it looks good, but please don't make it a simple point and click! the combat system of risen is very good, and it has some great features! something like dodge, dash, and defense are great things that can improve the fighting system!
[HV Boss] OneShotPaddy Oct 17, 2012 @ 12:20am 
Definitely will buy this. About time someone made a decent pirate RPG and didn't take it as a joke.
Bodger Oct 14, 2012 @ 8:17am 
Having watched the abilities video, I think it might be cool to add some parrys/ripostes to the combat, to give it more of a fencing/swashbuckling feel, which I feel would fit the setting better than the current "MMORPG" style skill choices.

Just my two cents, game looks like it could turn out good, so have a yes vote from me.
