Don't Sink
Adventure RPG  |  Studio Eris

A Sandbox-Adventure-Pirate-RPG that takes inspiration from Pirates of the Caribbean (2003 video game), FTL: Faster Than Light, and Sid Meier's Pirates but makes certain to stand out on its own.

IT'S A BRIGHT WORLD OUT THERE

Explore a massive world of unique, vividly-colored handcrafted islands in a sea never sailed. Juicy hues paint the landscapes and create a truly beautiful setting for your swashbuckling adventure. Pick up plenty of quests that will have you waterlogged and wayfaring in no time. Staying seaworthy is no small task!

 

TAKE OVER THE LANDLUBBERS

Sail from island to island, expanding your roguish dominion over the world and enhancing your reputation. Recruit locals and grow your pirate paradise into a bustling (and respectable!) haven. Feeling aspirational? Choose to conquer other islands and become their pirate governor. Rumors fly like grapeshot when you speak with various islanders, even allowing you to uncover the origins of each island.

 

HEAVE HO AND CONQUER THE SEAS

Expect the unexpected while at sea.  Not only are there OTHER pirates sailing these waters... but the threat of foodborne illness (gasp!) is ever-present as well. Stock the right supplies to keep your ship afloat and your crew happy until you reach fair shores. Tending to the morale, health, hunger, and thirst of your crew requires regular supply runs. Long journeys could force you to ration the rum. The horror! Experienced swashbucklers must prepare on dry land for the variety of challenges that await them in the briny deep.

  • Explore a massive world with unique islands and landscapes. Discuss rumors and discover the origins of each island by talking to the people that live there
  • Expect the unexpected when at sea. Events you may be unprepared for may occur such as a foodborne illness among your crew. You'll need to have access to the right supplies and have the experience to keep your ship afloat
  • A casual but real challenge - While simple to pickup and understand, there are numerous events that only an experienced swashbuckler will be prepared for. This makes the game more satisfying for long term pirates
  • Thoughtfully executed cutscenes that help to bring the world to life as well as reward pirates that explore


  • Sailing between islands is necessary to expand your control over the world and to increase your reputation
  • Tending to the morale, hunger, and thirst of your crew will require you to maintain a supply of food/water and consider whether or not rationing food is required during long journeys
  • Governing islands you've conquered is a difficult responsibility as you will need to solve economic issues before they get out of hand
  • Purchase larger ships as you fight your way through the sea. Famously powerful vessels such as the Galleon and Man of War are but a few of the available ships

Capture islands, sink ships, defend your towns, and discover an exciting world full of adventure!
