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.

You are your ship in the sense that you interact with the world through the ship but being able to switch ships is something we are planning to add.
Thanks for the interest!

Will you add multiplayer? Like cooperative servers or something?

We are aware a lot of people want this but it's not something we are considering until further down the road due to the amount of work it would take.
Thanks for the interest!
