PREPARE FOR BOARDING ME HEARTIES!


It's a happy day for us at Exit Strategy and we hope that you'll get similarly excited as you're reading this: we have just launched the new Pirates of New Horizons website, where you can play two levels of the game for free (in your browser) and pre-order the game!

This is the first public release since the release of the prototype and by the powers - it includes so many new features and fixes. For instance:

  • Prof. Henceworth: Annha's feline sidekick
  • New Moves: Ground-stomping, Kicking, Spline Surfing, Swimming (in all directions)
  • Over-The-Shoulder Camera Mode (to aim gadgets)
  • Save/Load System
  • Level Streaming (Background-Loading/No Loading Screens)
  • Advanced Shaders
  • Dynamic Shadows
  • Post-Processing Effects (Bloom, Lightshafts, SSAO)
  • New Music Score
  • Character Speech During Dialogues
  • Hotswapping between gamepad and keyboard
  • and much more...

If you decide to pre-order the game, you will not only save money and support the development, but also gain instant access to a third level (Volcano Island), more gadgets, a downloadable version of the build and many other pre-order perks (for example we can't wait to put your pictures up on the wall of our hallway :D)!

Awesome! I remember seeing a trailer for this a long time ago, so I'm really happy to see it's about finished. I tried the game on your website, it's very rich for a browser game, refreshingly different, and easy to pick up. Congrats!

Sorry about the credit card inconvenience, we are working as hard as possible to work out the issue with our payment provider. Paypal is the recommended solution for now.

Try selecting paypal as a payment method and in step 3 choose "guest". You should be able to pay using a credit card. Let me know if that works!

Love the Screenshots!
Its all turning out to be quite an amazing game!
I agree that Pirate of New Horizons should be $20 but as a pre-pay price this means the release price will be more...
I hope people are willing to pay more than $20
I will happily pay $20 because it looks GREAT!

First, looks great and loved the browser version I played.

Second, don't mean to get technical, but when you click on 'buy' on your website it shows (among other things) -

A downloadable copy of the Preview Version
A Pre-Order discount

So, when I buy I get a downloadable copy of the preview version and a "preorder discount." Am I buying the full finished version?

Thank you!
You ARE buying the FULL VERSION of the game! The downloadable stand-alone version of the Preview is just a little something we add on top and make available to you right now. The discount refers to the fact that the game will be have a slightly higher price tag upon release. Therefore it makes sense to pre-order now to save money. I can see why this can lead to confusion though, so I changed it. Thanks for bringing this up!

Thank you. Just was missing that line "includes full game upon release" that a lot of games have. The wording was just a little confusing.

The game looks great and you will have my preorder soon.

This game looks fun, your visual usage of Unity is beautiful, it's loaded with nice feature, and I'm kinda glad to see a moderately-proportioned yet interesting female lead character for a change (they're far and few between). I'll definitely be checking this one out next time I get paid. Great job!
