Feral Blue is a hybrid genre, combining solutions taken from action adventure games, RPGs and strategy games with arcade elements. Snowbird Game Studios is responsible for the development of this production - a team known so far mainly from Blood & Gold: Caribbean! and a series of turn-based strategies under the title Eador. This item appeared on the PC platform.
Feral Blue tells an alternative version of the story; the story of the game begins in 1699, when the Earth fell victim to a powerful sunlight that led to global warming on an unprecedented scale. As a result, ice caps at the poles melted, and the seas and oceans emerged from the shores, flooding gigantic stretches of land. The disaster, known as the Second Flood, led to the deaths of millions of people. Those who have survived are doomed to live on one of the hundreds of islands or sailing; one of these sailors is embodied by a player who gradually climbs up the career ladder, moving from a naval warlord to an experienced captain and diplomat.
Playing in a PC released for the platform Feral Blue We start with one ship and a small crew, and our goal is to build a sailing empire and start a dynasty, so that after the captain's death, the legacy can take over his descendant. As we travel across the ocean, we observe the action in isometric projection, like in Sid Meier's Pirates! However, when it comes to battle, the camera presents its course from a third person perspective (TPP). During the clashes not only the skills of the crew and the arsenal of our ship (over which we take direct control) count, but also the choice of appropriate tactics.
The activities we undertake develop the capabilities of our captain and his crew members, making them better and better sailors. It is worth bearing in mind, however, that each of our subordinates has its own needs, strengths and weaknesses; if we do not take sufficient care of them, they may fall victim to an epidemic or even stir up rebellion.
In addition, over time, we have the means to build our own settlement, which we gradually turn into a real metropolis; its development depends both on diplomatic relations with other cities (if necessary, we can remove politicians who disturb us in a more or less sophisticated way) and on how we use the resources of the treasury.
Feral Blue uses the Unreal Engine 4 graphics engine, so the visuals are at a decent level. Particularly noteworthy are the detailed ship models and realistically rendered water, as well as the effects of sea battles and, last but not least, changing weather conditions, such as violent storms.
