I know it's probably unintentional, as these things always are, but...

Uh, what's up with the super racist looking Japanese guy "Banzai Monkey" icon?

I haven't seen something so blatantly offensive in a game since Kung-Fu Chaos on Xbox back in the day.

Hm... I was never think about it in that way

It's not the guy - it's Japanize kamikadze-monkey for robbing enemy ships (but we hope monkey could swim if you miss).

Also monkey is very funny game element - you can see in video, and a good way to get more cash.

But maybe you right - I will find another screenshot. And thanx for pointing me.

Well, seems to me like you should maybe think about replacing the "Banzai Monkey" with a less offensive icon in the game.

Thank you, but I think he will reply by himself And say thanks to you personally

Let me introduce: - Vyacheslav Goncharenko (here Mannreheim) aka Glory.
Former Crytek Senior Artist, one of the designers of GSC, etc.. etc.. great and funny person and marvelous artist. You've probably seen his work in a lot of big AAA titles - Crysis, Stalker: SOC, Heroes5...

Thanx Steverd, very nice to hear that. And about banzai-monkey I will post tomorrow morning the details of they origin. But believe me - any racism in the monkey character. Just an image of brave and self-sacrifice deed.

As for lady pirate yep! we tried to add something nice looking... not only shooting and sinking ships even pirates have to rest sometimes and see the beauty.
