Deck 13 ready to release Black Sails in Germany - updated 5/08 - new website and demo - 03/13/10 04:29 PM

German Developers Deck 13, makers of Jack Keane,the Ankh series and the upcoming Haunted, has just finished a new adventure called Black Sails - The Ghost Ship.
The game, published by Astragon and planned to be released in Germany by the end of April, it is a classic point-click spooky adventure where players take the role of an intrepid heroine who is aboard the mysterious ghost ship "Mary Celeste".
We don't know at the moment if and when the game will be localized and distributed in english-speaking countries, let's hope to hear good news soon!
Here's the story, autotranslated by myself from german to english with Google:

Quote:

A ship sinks. Two survivors drift hopelessly at sea, until they encounter a mysterious, dark schooner. They decide to go on board - which soon turns out to be a terrible mistake ...

Inspired by a true story, the player will experience aboard the ghost ship "Mary Celeste" a journey into the darkest depths of the human soul, till the end between truth and fiction is indistinguishable.


You can see some screenshots HERE ,clicking on the packshot.
We will keep you posted :StPats:

UPDATE March 15th:Deck13 kindly confirmed that an english (UK/USA) edition of the game is already planned!

Looking forward to a english release of this, looks very good, seems like the put alot more work into the gfx atleast compared to ankh and jack keane.

But why does germany always get these great games months before frown

Deck 13 makes very entertaining games. PC adventures sell well in Germany, which is why so many of them are now released there first. (Well, one of the reasons.) grin

Thank you Carla for this wonderful news smile

I just bought the German magazine, PC Games (4/10)
and in it there was a printed commercial (in German) for this game. The game was released
in German on April 22nd 2010 apparently.

The screenshots looks nice as does the trailer.
So many games, so little time wink
