Meh, it's a thing. Not the best or worst text adventure I've ever played. A bit short, but considering you don't have to pay for the whole thing I won't hold that against anybody. The story is fun - if a bit basic - and your skills actually determine what choices you should make. Overall a very well implemented mechanic. Definitely for you if you don't want to commit to some massive 200,000 word novel.

A little shorter than I hoped, with the story ending a little abruptly. The vast timeskips and fast promotions allow for little storytelling and character development. But after all this, what do we get in return? One naval battle. One. This game tries to do a little bit of everything, but ends up falling flat in every way.

I absolutely adore this game. The choices are fun, and some difficult with the right amount of easy options to tailor towards your playing style. Choices of Broadsides is also diverse with the option for a side romance with the same gender, and a choice of male or female pirates being normal. The romance options are a fun addition without being the main focus of the story. My only complaint was that the game can really only be played 3 or 4 times before the redundency is insufferable.
