A LOT of great things have happened in and outside Urban Pirate the past two months. A lot of work with the audio and gameplay has been done.

I don't feel like spoiling the fun for you so here's a fellow pirate for you and I won't say much more right now

About a month to release.

So as the game progresses things get more ugly and more rough. Sheep Island is good for training your freedom-skills. But the concrete city across the bridge that you so desperately wanna go to - doesn't necessarily need any more pirates. Stay calm and run for your life.

Get ready for some early access gaming soon.

I bet you're all a bit excited to hear about what's going to happen further on in the game. Because I would spoil the fun to tell you the whole story I am just going to fill you in on some of the mechanics and challenges you will meet in the full game.

Shark City and beyond: The downtown mayhem on the other side of the bridge. Lots of cops, lots of dumpsters and plenty of space to open your own squat(s). There are a little more palm trees here and you can grow to become a fully respected local legend. There will be surprises during the storyline and you will have to face a lot more serious people than the police chief.

Mini-games & Arcade Mode: During the story you will encounter new mini-games. These levels will then be unlocked in Arcade Mode, so you're able to take on new challenges and as it seems the final release will have a two-player head-to-head mode as well.

Right now I am working on the last levels of the game and I am soon to post some clips of game play and graphics. Check Urban Pirate on Twitter to follow the progress.

The game's release has been postponed due to the extended amount of work tasks and ambition. We're looking to release it May '26 on Steam and IndieDB.

Thanks for reading!

Before I get into the last weeks of developing Urban Pirate and posting lots of updates, I will like to share these pieces of pixelart that I did for the Pixel Dailies page on Twitter. It's a great community and a solid way of getting new fans and evaluation of one's work. All you have to do is to tweet your pixelart related to the theme-of-today, be as good as possible and hope that it will get retweeted by the page's moderator. Here are some of my work over the previous couple of months that made it through:


1. #tombstone

Tombstone pixel dailies

2. #purple


3. #feather

feathered knights unrestricted

4. #monster (max 4 colors, 15x15 pxs)

5. #conan


I hope you have enjoyed the animations and I hope you get inspired to share your digital art!


So about 3 weeks after releasing the beta for game testing and reviewing a lot of good stuff has happened:

Mentions, game play videos & reviews:

- Indiegames.com, TechRaptor.net, Wraithkal.info, Lostvideogames.wordpress.com & Oprainfall all mentioned or wrote an article on Urban Pirate. Thanks to you!

- A handfull of pirates have made some Let's Play videos. Check out this playlist of urban madness!

Bugs & Fixes:

So far the demo has run very smoothly except for a couple of things

- A player has experienced that the .exe did not run on Windows 10. No fix yet.

- A player noticed that you are able to complete Bonus Mission Level 3 even though you 'smoke weed'. The variable that the statement referred to was not programmed. Now fixed.

- A player mentioned that she/he got it running in Linux with Wine. Superb!

The game is slowly but surely getting approved on Greenlight. Still a good way to go though but very happy with the 350+ downloads of the demo on the different sites altogether (IndieDB.com, Itch.io and Indiegamestand.com - still waiting to hear back from GOG.com).

I am also very excited to show the fans and everyone else the new levels and animations that are in development!

Really happy about TechRaptor reviewer Alex' take on Urban Pirate. Here's a quote:

"Going for a very unique visual style and a chill background of jazzy chiptune, Urban Pirate truly looks like a breath of fresh air on the indie scene. Sure, it has pixel graphics, but the characters the game is depicting are all over the place. The main character seems to have a television for a face, with several of his militant cohorts sharing a bizarre visual style. The police and other citizens seems to be more run of the mill, and it leads to a great contrast."
