Solar Sails is a satirical space adventure game with action-RPG elements. Control a pirate ship, plunder the royal navy, launch a scout duck to search for treasures, upgrade your ship with alien technologies, and sail onwards to unveil the darkest secrets of the universe that ought to seal its fate.

Play like a pirate

The game takes place in a weird universe inspired by Treasure Planet, Rick and Morty, Star Control, and various ancient mythologies. It is inhabited by unique alien races and controlled by two human superpowers locked in a cold war and economic turmoil.

Amidst all this mess, you control a team of space pirates. To make a living, you smuggle various illegal goods, raid trade convoys, and search for alien artifacts to sell on the black market. But be wary, some artifacts are very powerful, and were hidden for a reason.

Features

  • Explore a unique fantasy universe with its unique races, factions, and characters.
  • Raid and pillage zeppelins, outposts, and convoys to loot some interesting goods.
  • Capture hostages to trade them for ransom or interrogate them for additional information.
  • Upgrade your ship with mysterious alien technologies and abilities.
  • Level up your characters - each of them has their own skills to contribute to the ship.
  • Control a space duck to solve ancient puzzles and unlock hidden treasures.
  • Cook Giant Pasta in space to win the favor of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and gain some special abilities as a reward.
  • Play alone in Single Player mode or together with a friend in Local Co-op mode.

Story

The story revolves around four main characters - a gruesome self-loathing captain with a bunch of actual skeletons in his closet, an underappreciated young engineer who searches for his long-gone cat, a young cadet with mystic powers accused of intergalactic terrorism who seeks to find out the truth about her past, and a time-traveling mast duck determined to prevent the end of the galaxy in the near future. Each with their own secret goals in mind, they seem to forget they are on the same boat.



Ready or not, hoist the damn sails!

I'm intrigued by this. Years ago, I played a little known game that was basically Dungeons and Dragons in space. The wooden ships flying around in space were the best part of it, very imaginative. I'm going to try this out and give it a write up, everything I've seen here so far... has me smiling.

That's great to hear. I'm looking very forward to trying this.
P.S. The demo is still showing the message that it has been archived as an older version, intentional?

No worries, I downloaded it just fine and tried it out, it's pretty cool so far. It motivated me to write a small preview at Space Sim Central. Looking very forward to the release.
