That looks a LOT like 'Pirates of the Burning Sea' but I guess the source material can make that happen ^^

What is this source material you speak of? XD

If done right, this could be a lot of fun, though I wonder just what "True Caribbean" atmosphere means? o.O

At last, a pirate game that may not be hampered by being based on the genres of Adventure or Trading/Building...."hampered" at least as far as I'm concerned. Enjoy my 'Age of Sail' sea battles.

As long as I can enjoy my ship combat the way it was meant to be enjoyed. One ship, two broadsides and a WHOLE lot of noise! *chugs some rum*
