About

In this roguelike, you will embark on a journey as captain of a ship during the tumultuous time of Prohibition in the USA. Overcome challenges such as strong storms, coast guard pursuit, cunning mafia dealings and financial traps, all while trying to clear the path to riches.

  • Supply and demand: turn smuggling into a profitable venture - The people are thirsty and you are the captain they all need. Buy cheap alcohol from illegal distilleries and sell it at high prices to thirsty Americans. Each city and town will have its own requirements, so plan a strategy carefully to maximize profit.
  • Customize your ship, choose a unique crew and develop your own strategy - Become the master of liquor smuggling by customizing operations according to your preferences. Choose and upgrade ships, recruit skilled crew members, and develop a unique strategy to outwit the coast guard and the mafia. Your decisions will define your success as you navigate the turbulent waters of Prohibition-era America.
  • Play as 1 of 6 unique captains and explore over 50 different maps - Choose your captain wisely! There are 6 captains ready to set sail, each with advantages and disadvantages that can be crucial to the smuggling strategy. Traverse diverse oceans, rivers, and lakes as you attempt to overcome challenges, from weather phenomena to coast guard patrols, all to chart your route to success in this mercantile roguelike adventure.
  • Mafia Contracts and Favors - Form alliances with the Mafia through contracts, taking advantage of the mobsters' influence to navigate the turbulent waters of the Prohibition period. Take part in risky negotiations and be careful not to incur the wrath of the mafia. Remember: they always charge debts with interest!
  • Invitations and parties at sea - Immerse yourself in the Prohibition period in the USA. Interact with the people, support a railroad baron, help cities devastated by the Great Depression and contribute to the construction of the iconic Empire State building. Create bonds with thirsty customers and organize parties at sea, visible from the coast. Your actions have repercussions on the historical plot of the 1920s, adding a unique layer to the roguelike narrative experience.

Highlights

  • Explore Prohibition-era USA over 50 different maps across the American continent between 1920 and 1933, each with its own unique visuals and challenges.
  • Play with 60 different ships: You will begin the adventure by selecting a humble ship, making strategic choices between nautical speed, direction, loading time and cargo capacity. As you progress through your lucrative career, you can upgrade your starting ship or buy a new one. Each ship has a distinct aesthetic and functionality, but you can always tweak them to suit your play style through upgrades.

  • 10 special skills: Be strategic and use skills at the right time to avoid getting caught by the coast guard or the angry mafia. These skills include, among others:

- Gillnet Launcher: The Coast Guard is hell-bent on dismantling your empire. Hinder their pursuit by throwing a net and running away in a hurry.

-  Alcohol Supercharge: Sometimes we just need speed. Use some of the smuggled alcohol to fuel the engine and leave your pursuers behind.

-  Divine Assistance: your prayers have been answered. The next time you are caught, Divine Assistance will allow you to hide all illegal goods during an inspection.

  • Weather phenomena: navigate through whirlpools, storms and currents, learning to use these obstacles to your advantage.
