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

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.

Sorry, currently there are some problems with the fullscreen-mode so I deactivated it for now. When I get a proper solution for that an update will be ready.

I want to buy, but before I do, can any Linux users tell me if it works well on Linux???? I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.2 64-bit w/Unity.

It's written in Java, so should work. The bundled .sh didn't work for me, but running

java -jar pirateHell.jar

from the working directory loaded it fine.

As I'm the developer I would say: brilliant ^^

I tested it on several linux distributions and there was no difference to the windows version.

If you're not sure you can try the demo.

Hi edgley. Is there any error message when you try to run the .sh-file?
