About This Game

In a world of magic, run by idiots, there is the Lawless Sea. A place where piracy rules. Where the omnipresent Patriarchy has dominion in every country, but a growing Resistance is moving the upset the established order.

In this world a privateer named Eric will upset his girlfriend's mother, be transformed against his will, and made to join the Resistance. What will follow is a bizarre comedy of interesting circumstances and characters as chaos reigns. Will he/she embrace their new identity or oppose it? The choice is up to you!
