Default Here Be Dragons - Clear the uncharted seas of ancient evil (iPad only)

*Not the developer*

Saw this on Pocket Tactics

Edit: apologizes for the Universal tag in the title, game is iPad only

Quote:
Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. Vasco da Gama reached India by sea. However, all great explorers would never have reached their goals if they had to face all sea and land threats without help.

Someone had to defeat dragons and tritons, beforehand. Someone had to vanquish bloody cults. Someone had to banish supernatural ghost ships. The information about these deeds is missing from the archives, and you can’t find it in any great statesmen’s memoir. The knowledge of the “Avant Armada” was completely erased.

Fortunately, there are a few sources that tell the story of fearless men who followed royal orders and eradicated Evil in the uncharted lands. “Here Be Dragons” describes these days.
Adventure
- Visit the worst taverns, recruit crew, and buy provisions for your voyage.
- Cross the seas with an ancient map, on the surface of which everything is alive… and wants to devour you!
- Confront the most fierce beasts that ever lived: Leviathans and Krakens, predatory whales and lustful mermaids. Decimate the cultists, awake the Great Old Ones and then erase them from the human memory.

Strategy
- Dissect defeated enemies in the Laboratory. Research and create better weapons, equipment and ship parts.
- Boost your budget by selling artifacts and specimen… illegally. Follow or break the rules of conspiracy.
- Take care of morale, watch out for the spreading madness, keep away from diseases and curses. Allocate abilities and experience to your mates: Bosun, Knight, Priest and Cook.

Experience
- Wriggle between hell and high water, when authorities and advisors make their own plans. Look for the answers to your questions, seek the truth, and try to find out the reason for this bloodbath.
- Spit on the pirates. Ignore the settlers. You are above them. You are a monster hunter traversing through the terra incognita.

Thanks a lot for sharing, Bronxsta.

Here Be Dragons will be available for iPad, Android tablets, PC & Mac. Maybe not at the same time, but close. We'd like to launch a game in this year, but I can't give the exact date at this moment. No F2P. A mix of pure adventure (journey, exploring, intrigue), tactics (a combat with beasts) and strategy (research, ship development, crew & resources management). Our basic inspiration are The Seven Cities of Gold, XCom, FTL, Heroes of Might & Magic, Zafehouse: Diaries and many others.

We are co-creators of Neuroshima Hex, Eclipse, Caylus & Army of Frogs (Big Daddy's Creations). If you want to know exactly what are we and where are we going, look at our blog: [url]http://www.herebedragonsgame.com/genesis/[/url].

Unfortunately no, we don't plan version for smartphones at this moment, we need a big screen. But I can promise, that after release the game we will revisit this topic.
