A Tale of Pirates is a real time cooperative game, an app will drive you through the missions to accomplish to gain the title Admiral of the Black! In the treasure box you will find secret contents to discover when you unlock new levels.
The game by Cranio Creations features a 3D pirate ship that players have to navigate with the use of sand timers. The game which was previously announced as Admiral of the Black featured 10 different scenarios, all with a variety of goals, that make the gaming experience different each time you try one. The mobile app will be used by players as a guide through their missions, as they do part of the book-keeping, since it assists with the scenario data, random events, multiple paths, upgrades, and gamestate-saving for later sessions.
From the game description:
As a member of an adventurous pirate crew, your goal is to be crowned Admiral of the Black, the most feared pirate ship in the Caribbean. To earn this title, you must complete dangerous scenarios in the shortest possible time frame. The most innovative element of the game is that the player uses their own 30-second sand timer as a character to be placed on the ship to perform actions. Each time a player places their own sand timer, they have to wait for the sand to run out to be able to perform the action needed. Each hole in the ship represents an area where you can perform a specific action: turning the ship, loading cannons, shooting enemy ships, repairing damage, and so forth...
A Tale of Pirates is swift playing with simple rules, but it's exciting and involving, with great interactions among players. Unlike some other real time coop games the stress is present but not dominating. The thirty-second delays, in addition to the intermittent rounds, always allow you to catch your breath!
The game will release in Essen 2017 and is now available for pre-order
