Community Chill N Chat Moves to New Day and Time!

Hey Privateers!

Now that we're into the fall, and many people are in school, we're adjusting the day and time for Chill N Chat to allow for more people to be able to make it. We're going to be holding this week's chat on Saturday, October 15th, at 1PM Central. If you're new to our community hangouts, we encourage everyone to stop by! We discuss a different topic each week, and are always open to answering any questions you have about the game.

Our Discord server is permanent, and even outside of event times, we're always hanging out and getting to know our awesome community. You can find the server here:


Hope to see you all there!

Update on Launch

Greetings, Privateers!

We realize it’s been awhile since we made an official statement on the game’s launch date. In order not to leave so much room for speculation, we want to let everyone know that we are moving our internal estimate to early 2017. While we know this will cause some people to be upset, we have always stood firm in our resolution to only release this game when it felt ready and worthy of being called a 1.0 launch title. This includes balance, polish, and a thoroughly enjoyable range of content.

Over the past 6 months the game has dramatically improved in all 3 areas, but we are not yet fully satisfied with where things stand. We want to avoid the game feeling repetitive, and to make certain that the experience feels fun and exciting throughout the entire game. This has led to a decision on our part to add even more content, especially in terms of lore and story-related events within the game. What we have added most recently has made a big difference in terms of being able to land on a planet, and encounter unexpected things. The more we flesh out the game, the better the value we present in our finished product.

On top of that, we are taking a close and hard look at making combat feel more immersive/engaging as well as a ton of polish/balance/bug fixing. The newest version feels far better than the original system, and truly gives the power to the player on a new level. We value our community, and we won’t settle for less than the best!

We definitely want to thank our amazing community for all the support and love over the last year, and we look forward to crossing the finish line. You guys are the reason we’re pouring everything we’ve got into making Privateers truly great!

About This Game

Pixel Privateers is a Squad Based Tactical RPG “Loot ‘Em Up” that will send your team of mercenaries through a mysterious wormhole on a quest to gather technology for your employer. In a twist of fate, your journey becomes a one-way ticket – with an entire galaxy of worlds to explore, factions to encounter, and epic gear to collect. Will you make it back home, make your mark in this new universe, or become another victim of the many dangers of the cosmos? Ultimately, how your story plays out is up to you!

Focusing on a user-customizable experience and robust multiplayer within the framework of a deep and engaging space exploration RPG, Pixel Privateers seeks to provide a truly accessible rogue-like gaming experience that will appeal to gamers of all types and skill levels.


Huge Universe to Explore

Navigate your ship through the universe and land on any planet you choose! Take care, however, for many perils await you – and you could always find yourself overrun by enemies far stronger than you!

True Tactical, Squad-Based Combat

Control your squad individually in tactical mode - where you issue orders and have them carried out - or control your squad as one - directing them all at once!

Accessible Gameplay

An array of difficulty settings will allow you to enjoy the game in a more casual manner – or challenge yourself in True Rogue mode where death is quite permanent!

Storyline and Factions

Learn the history of various factions and their place in the universe, and become part of the intrigue yourself. Where do your loyalties lie? What part will you play? See how the story unfolds!

Deep Skill and Tech Trees

Advance your knowledge and conquer: Gain awesome new skills, abilities, and technologies as you research alien artifacts. Train and advance individual crew members by enhancing their stats and collecting better gear!

Interactive Ship

Tired of all that adventuring? Spend some time building up and exploring your Ship! Maybe even hang out in your own on board bar - complete with a band to entertain you!

Epic Loot!

Plenty of awesome gear to make you a powerhouse is out there for the taking! Not to worry, with the innovative loot highlighting system, you can choose what you want to pick up and take back to your ship. No inventory clutter here!

Post Launch Content

We absolutely plan to bring free content expansions to Pixel Privateers – following in tradition set by Terraria. In fact, we have a number of plans already, and we will plan to share more specifics there post launch. The better things go, the more we can do – we want Privateers to be a title with a long life!
