Floris Maathuis en Polygon Interactive | YARR het piratenspel
True-to-life pirate game
‘Ahoy, ye landlubbers! Follow me for an adventure on the Seven Seas!’ Take the wheel and assume the life of a pirate captain whose life, ship and dignity have all been taken from him by the Flying Dutchman. With your shipmates manning the cannons, you will sail the Caribbean in search of the most notorious vessel afloat. Plunder as many ships of the Verenigde Caribische Handelsmaatschappij as you can en route, but watch out that the King’s soldiers don’t capture you!
