The Pirate: Plague of the Dead
Action 31 July 2017
A continuation of The Pirate: Caribbean Hunt - a popular action game with strategy elements developed by the Polish studio Home Net Games. Like its predecessor, The Pirate: Plague of the Dead takes the players to Caribbean islands, until recently under control of the pirate community. The main protagonist of the story is John Rackham, who is the only survivor of the slaughter orchestrated by the Grand Inquisitor. Seeking his revenge, John turned to voodoo practices in order to resurrect legendary pirates such as Anne Bonny, Charles Vane, or Blackbeard. Together with the pirates brought from the dead, the protagonist wants to deal with his archenemy once and for all. The Pirate: Plague of the Dead features a vast open world the player is free to explore with one of over a dozen available ships. On their journey, the player has to observe not only the wind direction and velocity, but also use this information to choose the appropriate type of sails. To top it all, the game delivers a dynamic day and night cycle as well as changing weather conditions. This installment in The Pirate series is fueled by campaign missions that lead the player through consecutive parts of the story. In between these missions, one can turn to other activities that fill the treasury allowing for expanding and improving the fleet controlled by the player. Gameplay revolves around naval battles, during which one can ram into the enemy vessels, shoot the cannons at particular parts of hostile ships, and utilize special combat abilities exhibited by the captains. The entire experience features high-quality visuals – one is bound to appreciate the well-polished ship models and water animations.

Action 04 January 2016
An action game set in the world of pirates. Created by Miroslaw Dymek, a legendary Polish game maker responsible for series such as Earth 21XX or Polanie.

The player controls a captain of a pirate ship, whose aim is to gain fame and riches at sea. The game consists of completing subsequent missions that focus mainly on combat and exploration. The player plunders cargo ships, pirate bases, forts, and harbors. Between the missions, the player can make improvements to their fleet, choosing from sixteen diversified classes of ships, upgraded alongside their progress in the game. In-game sailing features realistic mechanics, making it a great asset to the game - this element was based on the personal experiences of the creator, who is an avid sailor himself. The game has offers extended online features as well, allowing the players to create their own pirate clans.
