Install this file to get better graphics in any version of a Storm Engine based game, including Pirates of the Caribbean, Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales...
Age of Pirates: Caribbean Tales plays out in several different ways. There are several different game elements both on land and sea.
1) Sailing on the map: time is sped up to compensate for the travel around the map; as you sail around several of the Caribbean islands you can choose to enter ports, attack ships or sail through storms.
2) Sailing in real time: on the sea is where the sea battles take place, as well as real-time sailing; also sailing through storms takes place in real time.
3) On foot: there are many different things you can do on foot; a few of these are fighting in boarding actions, fighting a captain one-on-one, and walking around town gathering sailors and supplies.
OK, so the preliminary cover art needs some work. Let's try that again, shall we?
This game is being developed to be the pirate and historical seafaring game to end them all. Realistic yet fun gameplay on land and at sea allowing both extensive free play and exciting scripted storylines should ensure that anyone with any interest in the Age of Sail should be able to live their dream!

We are making this as an independent game without any financial backing. It is made by fully freelance developers in their spare time and will be available for free once we have something playable.
