Version 1.0.1 Released - Quality of Life & Balance Updates

Today we released a small patch with some quality of life improvements and some balance updates. Players wanting a more casual experience will find combat easier on Very Easy and Easy settings, and players wanting a more challenging experience will find combat much harder on any setting higher than Normal.

We've also made some balance changes to pirate mode to make it more effective.

And for lefties or anyone wanting to use the arrow keys, we've heard you and those keys can now be re-binded in the options screen.

Thanks for all the feedback so far!

  • The game difficulty slider now affects combat difficulty - on lower settings human players and their escorts will take less damage, and on higher settings they will take more.
  • Increased rate of decay on skull rating while in pirate mode, and reduced the delay before it starts decaying - should make pirate mode more effective.
  • You can now rebind the arrow keys so you can remap them to control the ship movement

About This Game

Pirates of the Polygon Sea is a high-seas adventure where you play as a swashbuckler vying for control of the Mythic Isles. You will build a bustling port town, trade with neighboring islands, hunt for lost treasure, and if you dare, plunder merchant ships as a pirate. As your reputation grows, so too will your wealth and influence; with some daring and skill you may even rise to become lord of the high seas. Be sure to keep your cannons loaded and your cutlasses sharpened, however, for rumors speak of dark shapes spotted lurking beneath the waves...

Key Features
  • Engage in action-packed naval combat against enemy ships; fire broadside cannons, throw burning oil, and outmaneuver vessels in your quest to dominate the high seas.
  • Upgrade your ship from a feeble Sloop to a mighty Man'O'War, and put on your pirate sails to raid wealthy merchants.
  • Build your humble coastal town into a bustling sea port, constructing docks, marketplaces, shipwrights, fishmongers, guard towers, and more.
  • Hire escorts and amass a powerful fleet and raid nearby towns and outposts.
  • Experience a dynamic, procedurally generated world; AI opponents, world layout, events, and objectives are randomized, creating a unique experience each time you play.
  • From mysterious shipwrecks, deadly pirates, and lost treasure to enchanting mermaids, giant whales, and even the legendary Kraken – you never know what you’ll discover when you set sail!
