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,

Hi loasmo. When the left orb starts to blink, press the right mouse button (the upper left gamepad button) to fire the rage shot. You can select the rage shot types between each mission in the ship menu but you have to gather them at first by buying the weapon shop.

Hi loasmo,

So I beat the game in one sitting, it isn't long but it's entertaining. I loved the music if anything else. Not much story sadly, but a decent chunk of missions and upgrades to be had. I ran into an error, but it was a one time dealy, most likely on my side. Also I couldn't select my ships super weapons. Maybe because I bought the buildings back to back? don't know. I liked the game, so good job.

Thanks for the comment. It was very helpful : )

You have to buy the armory to unlock the other rage shot types.

That's what I mean, I bought the buildings back to back, and owned EVERY building upgrade, but it wouldn't let me change my super weapon. It showed them available under ship, but I couldn't select them. I tried left click, right click, tab, space, enter, arrow keys, nothing.

Hm sounds that there's something buggy. I'll take a look at it.

On which OS are you playing it?

Vista, but that really shouldn't have much to do about it. Could just be a glitch that happened to me, or a bug if you buy the two super weapon buildings back to back.
