What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We have been developing „Of Ships & Scoundrels” for quite some time now, and we feel that it’s time to get it out in the open, collect valuable feedback from the community and see if our concepts work and if and where they can be improved.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We expect the game to come out of Early Access in early 2020.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version will have had several content and balancing updates, the full singleplayer story campaign with 2 different storylines, as well as an endless mode (also singleplayer). Here you compete against AI opponents and go on a series of quests to discover the secrets of the Word Below - the sunken realm at the bottom of the sea.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The current version has a turn-based online multiplayer with up to 4 players, and the first 4 missions of the story campaign. Additionally, the game can be played in “Hot Seat” mode: a local multiplayer where 4 players play in sequence on one computer.

Every map is procedurally generated and features heated battles against human or AI opponents, monsters as well as environmental hazards like storms and maelstroms.

The endless mode is still in development and will be integrated during the EA phase.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Yes, the price will change to a slightly higher amount which will only adapt to the content and feature level it is going to have and which it did not in the beginning of the early access phase”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We plan to heavily rely on feedback from the community in terms of player experience, overall fun, balancing and polishing. We will have various communication channels (Discord, Steam Forums, social media) where we will discuss openly about the current state of development, new features and improvements. We want to make it as much your game as ours.”

“Of Ships & Scoundrels could be the sea-based RTS wannabe pirates were waiting for.”
