Hi everyone,

We have decided to close the Kickstarter and stop the development of Freebooter for the foreseeable future. At the time of writing, we are still at 8% of the Kickstarter goal amount, and we do not see a way to turn things around before the end of the Kickstarter.

We have loved the idea of Freebooter ever since we first discussed it and we have enjoyed working on the game for the past year. We knew it was a very ambitious project from the start and that it would be a long shot to get it made, but we are happy that we have made an attempt.

We would like to thank everyone who have backed the Kickstarter and everyone who has followed Freebooter over the past year. We have been overwhelmed by the attention Freebooter has gotten and we are sorry we could not give you a chance to play it. In the end Freebooter proved too ambitious, but we will keep making games. Once again, thank you all for your support.

Johannes, Jakob and Nissanthen, Tribunal Games.

Once you have bought a copy of the game, there is no further expense. No microtransactions of any kind.

Will There be an actual playermodel rather than a boat and will we be able to pillage villages?

Right now we're focused on making the ship on ship combat. We do have ideas for a lot of stuff we would like in the game, including playermodels and pillaging but at this point we're not certain how much we will have time to actually make.
