Exit Strategy Entertainment are curently developing a prototype version of “Pirates of New Horizons”, a demonstration of the game’s concept. It is going to be released online, for free, so anyone can try it and give us their opinion. The intention is to gauge the interest of gamers in the gameplay, theme and art direction.

Based on this feedback we will evaluate whether the time and effort to develop a full version of the game would be viable for us.

  • Low hardware requirements, simple controls. We would like to have as many people enjoy our game as possible
  • Three completely different levels!
  • Multiple usable items: Grappling Hook, Kharma Bombs and Compass.
