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.

Sincerely,
Johannes, Jakob and Nissanthen, Tribunal Games.

Also, we have discussed having a crew that is only visible on the GUI, kind of like party portraits in an RPG, and having the player assign them to tasks around the ship. We still have plans for other features that take priority but if/when we get time, I think this is the implementation of crews we want.
Thanks for the interest!

That's something we've been asked a lot and it would be very cool but it would take too long to make it work well enough. Thanks for the interest!

True, ease of use may be more important in a game like this than making a realistic sailing facsimile. I'll play it either way. :)
