Hilarious Pirate Game Looks Like Pure Chaos

Hilarious Pirate Game Looks Like Pure Chaos

Blackwake is a multiplayer FPS game all about naval battles. You have a crew, and you have a captain. The question is: can you come together and work as a team?

Really, you just gotta watch this trailer. It's the best Kickstarter pitch I've seen in ages:

So, to recap:

  • You and your crew are in charge of every aspect of a ship, including loading/firing cannons, repairing holes and sails, manning the pumps, and boarding the enemy ship.
  • The captain can give the crew commands and orders, but it's up to the crew to carry them out.
  • You can name and customise your team's ship.
  • You can overthrow your captain.
  • You have an "assortment of 18th century firearms" at your disposal, though it looks like you can get creative with what you use as a weapon.
  • The game is match-based, and will feature different types of objective modes including assaults on enemy ships, defending your own ship, capturing the treasure, and more.
  • The weather and landscape system is robust, allowing you to experience everything from storms, to ice bergs and sandbars -- which will affect your game.
  • There will be hats.

Right now the project aims to raise $US7305 so it can release on PC and Mac, and it's already pretty close to that goal. Alternatively, you can watch uncut gameplay footage of the alpha here, courtesy of ngotie -- it looks sweet! Do note that these players seem to know what they're doing too, which means these matches are more intense than they are hilarious.

    I can only see this being fun if its done CS style with rounds and no respawns.

    Incoming all the pirate, swashbuckler and seafaring games. Not that, this is a bad thing, but it'll get swarmed on like every other craze these days.

    Pirate games starting to become mainstream. Just like post apocalyptic games where now is kind of overrated.

    So Guns of Icarus/Airbuccaneers with non-airship ship? Does look interesting.

    Plenty of serious Sam yelling going on in there.

    Will get, please release for Linux also... PLEASE
