Age of Sail MMO Caribbean Conquest hits Kickstarter
Pirates, tall ships, the Age of Sail — wait, haven’t we seen this before? Perhaps so, but Invenio Interactive thinks it can do this niche genre better with its upcoming Caribbean Conquest.
The title will put an emphasis on realm-vs.-realm combat and economy, with plenty of opportunities for trade, boarding parties, and ship battles. Customization, down to player-designed pennants, will also help to distinguish this game. And yes, players can choose the virtuous life of a privateer for one of five countries or enter the devil’s own service as a pirate. It will be pay-to-play with a level-free design.
Caribbean Conquest recently launched its Kickstarter campaign to raise $42,975 for further development. The team said that it’s trying to capture “the point” of MMOs in the creation of this game: “We believe online gaming is about creating memorable moments with friends and strangers alike. We believe gaming should be an experience, and that online gaming is an experience to be shared.”
