Hoist the mainsail! Stow the booty! Set Sail For Outer shores! And while we’re at it, make sure we paint over anything that might make a bunch of bandits at sea look like criminals! Spend some time with us and let investigate the genre of pirates and how its far from a guide to the […]
I enjoyed watching people play Microsoft’s Sea of Thieves during the beta. It looked like a proper sailing simulator and the crew mechanic was nice. In fact, I can see Twitch and Patreon perks quickly being used in conjunction with populating a crew. Titan Comics has a comic book from writer Jeremy Whitley coming out […]
[Make this mine] This Redubble design is the work of Handclones who has made a few other contributions to the site. I think this friendly kraken, just relaxing in the tub, taking the pirate ship out for a spin, is my favourite though.
Sea of Thieves is a co-operative open-world MMO from Rare. It’s easy to see why Microsoft are showing off this gameplay footage – it seems to be great fun and important to work with your crew. Details are a little sketchy but many sources are suggesting the game will be available for PC and Xbox […]
Slightly NSFW dur to naked puppets. This is an incredibly well animated stop-motion by Christophe Peladan. It’s a strange love story that features a hanging pirate on a flying boat, a naked witch and a guardian octopus. The project was shot at The Animation Workshop in Viborg, Denmark over a period of 6 years.
It was just a few months ago, in Novemeber, when we reported on John Wick buying 7th Sea back from AEG. He’s got the Kickstarter up already and it’s a smash hit. At the time of writing there’s 33 days left on the clock, $115,00 in the bank against a target of only $30,000. You […]
How do you imagine life as a fantasy pirate? Would there be sword fights on the decks of fast ships? Drinking, feasts and raiding treasure islands in search for hidden gold? Or would life be a bore with weeks at sea with nothing to do except scrub the deck and fight off illness? This summer […]
Bandai Namco have another title in their One Piece: Pirate Warriors series and this time the action moves to Fish-Man Island as the Straw Hat gang take on Hordy Jones and his… well, his horde. In the UK fans can order the special One Piece: Pirate Warriors 3 “Doflamingo” edition exclusively from from Amazon. This […]
Sea of Thieves is a new title from Microsoft and Rare. It’s a multiplayer pirate game set in a shared world. This means you’ll share ships and battles for loot with other players. Destiny comes to mind; except with pirates. There’s scarce other details from either E3 or the press releases since. The game will […]
One of my favourite short films of the year. Here we have a post-apocalyptic world that’s run dry. A single pilot fights bravely against sky pirates who are out to steal the last remaining source of water – the clouds themselves. The film was made by laptops and a 7 week long retreat to a […]
