Hello guys,

I'm Sunspear, a programmer for Pirates. This post is my introduction to the Miriscus team. Before Pirates I've been at work on my own unity projects and was also one of the core developers for the amazing Crusader Kings 2: A Game of Thrones mod.

Since joining the Pirates project in March I've been at work and mainly the backend of things. Developing multiplayer software since 2009, I'll be making sure our networking will be as efficient as it possibly can get.

As a fan of all the survival games out there, I did some work on a survival/horde mode for Pirates. Our goal is to have as much variation as possible, including some unconventional and silly game modes to keep you entertained. Also I don't think a pirates survival game has ever been done before :)

While so far only a generic zombie model has been used, there are plans to add all types of cool survival and horde game modes with all kinds of enemies.

If you don't like the undead, fear not. Game modes such as deathmatch and CTF are being worked on as well.

It depends on how much of the GDD makes it into the final build (which hopefully is everything) and also on release type. With release type: If a build is the low-spec art on Android, that would be sold cheaper than the PC version with high spec. That's why I provided $15-30 previously.
