Yarr arr yarr. I loddie the hotpants!
It's time to get into some swashbuckling action and head into the high seas for adventure. AEG has launched their Kickstarter campaign for Dead Reckoning, their 4X game of wind, sea, and sail.
From the campaign:
The 4X Swashbuckling Adventure Game you've been waiting for!
Take command of an able crew and set a course for adventure in Dead Reckoning. Explore mysterious islands, fight battles, upgrade your ship & crew, and build fortifications to protect your holdings. The player with the most treasure in their chest when the game ends wins!
Explore further with Saga Expansions which can be added and removed easily so you can reset the game to its starting condition at any time.
Will you become a pirate, haunting the sea lanes and terrorizing your opponents? Or an explorer, rushing to discover what lies beyond the horizon? Or a master merchant, with a profitable trade route and well developed infrastructure? Every game will be different as each player follows their own path to victory!
The game's already more than 5x funded with 23 days left to go.
