Pixel Piracy, a side-scrolling 2D strategy sim developed by Vitali Kirpu and Alexander Poysky, has been released on Steam for Linux.The game has been available on Steam Early Access for some time, but now the developers have released a patch that also enables Linux users to have a go at it.
According to the changelog, 3 bugs that caused Linux and Mac OS X builds to not function properly have been fixed and the ship now has a lifebar – if the lifebar reaches 0, then the ship sinks.
“In the game, the player leads the life of a pirate captain. Recruit a crew, outfit and customize your ship and set sail on the open seas. There you’ll use any combination of aggression, diversion and trade to become the most infamous pirate crew of the seven seas!”
“You can raid, pillage and plunder everything in your path, divert and lie to get what you want or trade for a quick buck. Remember to be careful though, death is everywhere and quite permanent! Adventure awaits…,” reads the official Steam website.
The game is still in the Beta stages and players will most likely encounter multiple bugs. Also, the title is not complete and it will be a while until the full version is released.
