As we are stuck in perpetual lockdown and Hollywood continues its failure to entertain us (other than Nolan), we must find ways to entertain ourselves and video games have become a HUGE part of that.
I am a gamer in my few minutes of free time and this is one I choose to play.
It’s not a new game, but it is fully-developed and extremely exciting.
Is it easy? Nope.
The game has depth on top of depth. Ship designs, cannon choices, materials. It all matters.
Then, when you get in battle you must pay attention to the wind, seas, and your foe. Miscalculate any of them and Davy Jones will greet your crew in short order.
You can build a fast mover with light planking or a hefty ship with thick walls. It’s all up to you.
