'Pirates of New Horizons' No Longer A Prototype, Goes Into Full Production

Pirates of New Horizons is a singleplayer action adventure game mixing platformer elements with puzzles and skill-based combat, in which the player takes control of the young space pirate Annha, who travels the void on her search for hidden treasures.

After defending herself from an attack by hostile Alien pirates, Annha’s ship breaks down near a remote island. She has to find a way to repair her ship and solve the mysteries surrounding the island in order to find gold and precious jewels, which will make her more prosperous than any pirate had ever been.

After analyzing all the feedback we gathered from players, we decided to continue the development. We registered a company, rented a place in Hamburg, Germany and the four of us are now working on a full game based on the prototype. So after a long time period of silence, we finally got to share the news regarding our decision, along with the announcement that Exit Strategy Entertainment has officially been founded.

Key Features:

  • The game takes place in a unique setting. We picked up elements from two completely different worlds (colonial times and science-fiction) to create a completely new one.
  • “Pirates of New Horizons” is a hybrid between Action Adventure and 3D Jump’n Run genres, that will make you jump, fight and use your items to navigate through dungeons like no other.
  • We hope that the distinctive visual style and attention to detail will carry over to players and they will have at least as much fun exploring the environments in this game as we had crafting them.
  • 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.
  • Much more: Purchasable Upgrades, Side-Quests, ...
