A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

"A game where you massacre surprised pirates near an immaculate battlefield, but everything is on fire!"

You play as Captain BeardHook, a pirate most evil and full of probably too much rum and beat-to-death pirate tropes. Descended from the heavens, you are commanded to slay all the pirates ahead.

This game was made for Insanity Jam 4 (7.10.15 - 7.27.15) by Jacob Dunbar (that's me). I plan on continuing development of the game by adding additional levels and features in the future but for now, have fun with what it is!

Also, I want to give credit to the artist Rolemusic on Free Music Archive for use of their awesome chiptune works. Here's the link to the full album: https://freemusicarchive.org/music/Rolemusic/The_P...

Haven't added a controls menu into the game yet, so here's what you get for now (there's also a .txt file in the .zip folder):



Left/Right Movement - Left/Right Arrow Keys

Jump - Spacebar

Sheath/Unsheath Swords - W

Quit to Title Screen - Escape (Esc)

Controller (Xbox Format):


Left/Right Movement - Left Joystick

Jump - A

Quit to Title Screen - Escape (Have to use keyboard for now)
