There's no hard date yet, but we kind of expect to push it worldwide in the next 1-3 weeks depending on some final PR dates.

Yeah it's a tower defense. Here's a few notes:
  • Its set in the Caribbean across very different landscapes (Tropics -rain forest, Urban Pirate Town, Forts\Cliffs, Cannibal Swamps, Undead & Mystical Temples)
  • You can build 20 different towers types. Towers have a very organic feel.
    Example: (Nitro filled Puffer Fish tower, Harpoon Shark Hunter, Sea monster...etc )
  • You gotta protect the pirate ship. That ship has its own guns (long range) that you can aim manually 360 around it.
  • You can hire island natives and pirates in some levels that patrol the map joining in the fight for you.
  • There are currently 4 hero 'Flying Aces' planned for launch. They strafe player defined target areas and upgrade their weaponry during combat etc..
  • In some levels you have secondary objectives off the main path which require you to capture loot convoys and steal treasure (Whiskey, Diamonds.... pandas!).
  • Lots of player activated powers like Pirate Ship Bombard, Kraken (sea monsters), Twisters, Rocks from the Deep, Turtle drone cannons... and a few other wacky things.
  • The visuals are a very strong feature of the game 30+ super detailed enemies & bosses set in very lush environments.
  • Some maps have rivers that can propel enemies forward or slow them down in some cases.
  • As its set on water we've used a water shock-wave system to push enemies about and it feels very natural when a shark jumps out of the water beside bad guys and the splash pushes them in all directions. The player can use the shock-waves to push enemies back and its a big part of the strategy of the game.


Hit me up with any questions you guys have
