GOG release: “Abandon Ship”

Fireblade Software’s roguelike sea adventure/strategy game Abandon Ship lands on GOG’s DRM-free shores.

It seems that adventure stories involving ships and mysterious islands never go out of style, even if the Pirates of the Caribbean hype is long over. Abandon Ship clearly borrows some of the atmosphere of the movies/theme park attraction, i.e. it combines historical as well as fantasy ideas. Inspired by classic naval oil paintings, including fights with enemy ships or cannibals, but also spiced up by encounters with ghosts, giant spiders or a big kraken (which can also be used as a weapon later on), the game throws all sorts of outlandish things at the player.

Sailing around various islands feels as if discovering brave new worlds full of wonders, treasures and dangers. Upgrading one’s ship is essential to survive, while taking care of the crew is also important. The more people on board fight through all the obstacles, the more they gain experience, which is necessary to win real-time strategy sea battles. If one’s ship is destroyed, the title of the game comes to fruition, as one has to jump from the ship, hopefully with the sea captain still alive. Otherwise it means game over. As most games associated with seafaring are focused on trading, Abandon Ship feels pretty unique, and as there are multiple stories to play through in the campaign mode, it offers more than enough variety to explore the fantasy islands.

Abandon Ship was originally released in October 2019 and is now available DRM-free on GOG with a 30% discount that lasts until March 12, 2020, at 2 PM UTC. The artbook can also be purchased separately.
