Ludum Dare 42: The Not Very Golden Age of Piracy

“The Not Very Golden Age of Piracy” by Jonathan Murphy, Louis D. Meyer, Adrian Vaughan, Kyle Olson, Angelo Di Rosa, Ben Weatherall & Dave Lloyd.

“Click to select your babies and click again to move them around your ship! Load the cannons with cannonballs! Take aim at the enemy ship and let loose!”

Imagine you were a pirate. And not only that, you would be the captain! How would you avoid mutiny? The most obvious solution, of course, is to just hire babies as your faithful recruits. They may scream around or hey, maybe their diaper stinks a bit, but after all, they can roll back and forth a cannonball and also take light repair jobs.

In this strategy game you have to defend your pirate ship against quite strange, winged enemies. It is namely chicken pirates who are in charge of the opposing ships! Like you, they will attempt to shoot down their fiend while at the same time they will repair the leaks. Since this is your job as well, you just have to show a higher level of tactical skill. Distribute the tasks to the babies in an efficient manner so that you are known as the only true pirate king on the seven seas in the end – and that the chickens are really only scurvy rats. A highly polished jam game with some great audio logs of the captain, arrr! >>PLAY
