Yarrr pirates,
I had to fix a bug which made the different rage attack types unselectable. The update is available now. Also the responsible crew member will now be keelhauled (unfortunately the crew is only me...).

Also what is going to happen with PirateHell now?

The answer is easy: I'll expand it.

I'll create a world map which will replace the mission selection menu. Also on this map there'll be harbours where you can buy stuff and select random missions (like wanted posters or protection missions) and find hidden treasures.

"Meeh. This surely is going to be DLC, eh?"

Nope. I'll take the "minecraft"-way which means: If you bought the game, all updates will be free. Nevertheless as the game is growing the price will be raised a little.

So long,

ceiphren

Is anyone else having problems launching the game? Whenever I launch the game I get the desura window to pop up for half a second, and then nothing happens. I've reinstalled several times, tried launching through the desura folder....

Other than that, from what I've seen this game looks awesome, and I'm dying to play it myself!

How do you beat that damned race level.... I can't do it, always come in second!

Just made it after some attempts.. sell all upgrades of all ships, select smallest ship, upgrade sails as far as possible, always take the mined shortcut, you can take some hits and recover slowly. Don't waste your concentration on shooting. Always take the shortest path, never stop, take all turbos despite the penultimate. That should do it. :)

Try with the small ship (it's the fastest one) and upgrade the sails (if you spend money in other upgrades you can remove these to regain the gold). Also use the booster spots.

On the down right of the race track is a small shortcut (the part which is peppered with mines ^^). If you manage to go throught it you will gain some more seconds.

Good luck. : )
