Ahoy!

We just launched our Kickstarter campaign for Pirates of New Horizons Mobile (iOS/Android; tablets and smartphones) and we really need all the support and help we can get from you!

Pirate girl "Annha" and the flying cat "Professor Hencheworth"

You might have heard about Pirates of New Horizons and played our free PC demo sinche we have been working on it for three years now. We started out making a PC version, but due to financial reasons we are now forced to slow down to release the game for iOS/Android (smartphones and tablets). If our Kickstarter campaign is turning out as we hope, we would love to to go back and release for PC/Consol.

Pirates of New Horizons is a 3D platforming game with a great pirate humour made by level designer of Mini Ninjas fame and industry veterans, who, among others have been working at IO Interactive, Blizzard, Kixeye, Unknown Worlds and Bigpoint. The game offers real old-school gameplay and game feeling.
You will recognize some of our inspirational sources for Pirates of New Horizons from:

  • Super Mario 64 and its platforming elements
  • The Monkey Island series and its great use of (pirate) humour
  • Combat elements from God of War
  • Colourful art from The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker

Please don't let an old friend go down:

We are giving the realease of this game another and last shot and we really need your help in order to support and share our Kickstarter campaign with the rest of the world. I hope you love the game as much as we do. Please help us to reach our Kickstarter goals!

Aye! Thanks! & Cheers!
Pirates of New Horizons Dev. Team.

That's sad, all gameplay and graphics where done.
They should have delivered episodic content, like two first chapters first. And why not when done all chapters possibility to buy a complete project.

Failed to deliver a game to people that pre order is a dangerous situation as this people will just go away.
I saw the beginnings of the game in Unity forum, it had a fast progress, faster than before the team has grown. When a game takes too much time to progress develop it's a bad sign.

Anyway good luck, and who knows like Duke Nukem perhaps one day it will become a real game ?

Just played the prototype, enjoyed it a lot! I like the graphic style and the gameplay is great fun. All in all awesome work, I will keep tracking this game.

The only thing I didn't like was that I had to figure out the keyboard controls by trying out every single key. I know this game is supposed to be played with a 360 controller, but you should still list the keyboard control too. Using mouse & keyboard actually worked great once I figured out the keys, maybe except for the gadget selection. You could support the mousewheel for that.

For a full game you should make the combat mechanics a bit more interesting, maybe adding combos or something. The simple combat system was ok for the prototype, but for a full game it would probably get monotonous after some time.

there should be a "show controls" button to the right of the web player window. maybe that thing should always show no matter what.
