50% discount on Tempest, New Patch + Screenshot Mode

Ahoy, pirates! Get Tempest at 50% off this whole week, starting today! Now’s the perfect moment to transfer this game from your wishlist straight into your Steam library.


And now for more exciting news! The recent screenshot competition gave us a great idea which didn’t take long to implement: starting today, all captains can access a special mode which allows you to stop in-game time and use the floating camera to make some mind-blowing screenshots! You can find the hotkeys in the settings.

Sure enough, we’re not finished yet. Your feedback helps us improve Tempest every day. The new update squashes the following bugs:
  • interface issues on 21:9 monitors
  • ability to choose a captain when there are no pistols on the ship
  • visibility of obfuscation limits at the minimal interface size
  • walking around a galleon
  • placing two of the same items in a slot to upgrade equipment
  • shortened the quest for switching your location to the Jade Sea
  • actions performed on a second monitor won’t minimize the game from now on
  • water flickering in ultra quality
  • travelling on land in store mode
  • quest box overlapping with its header
  • part of the junk sail has a black sector
  • the Spanish language didn’t fit in the dialog box
  • fixed errors in tutorial texts
Make awesome screenshots, upload them to the community center, and share your experience with us!

Hey Captain! Now that you’ve got the Jolly Roger fluttering in the wind over your ship, you’re ready to rove the seas, take on merchant ships loaded with booty and storm formidable fortresses. Set sail and get your hands on all those legendary treasures that are just waiting for the picking!
When we created Tempest, we focused on the most thrilling part of pirate life – sea battles.
As you navigate the dangerous waters of the game you won’t just catch up with merchants, but you will encounter fellow pirates, creepy followers of a mysterious cult and terrible mythical monsters: Kraken, Leviathan and other infamous creatures.
Your ship – the pride and joy of any freebooter – can be customized in many ways. You are free to change almost everything – from the color of your flag and sails to the ship’s hull and figurehead.
Of course, there are plenty of weapons to choose from for every battle, including cannons, mortars, flame throwers and so on. Also there are special tools ready to help you to rig the ship for any purpose. However, you can win the most valuable artifacts only by finishing the multilevel quests called “legends”.

Good hunting.
