The Developer: Evan - A game developer, nautical enthusiast, pianist, writer, artist, animator, programmer, designer, gamer, composer, and computer technician.
An 8-bit adventure about sailing the Atlantic in the 1700's - inspired by The Oregon Trail. There are 6 different ships with speeds matching their real life counterparts. It has arcade style minigames and an 8-bit soundtrack of traditional naval tunes to accompany you on your perilous voyage. You will face storms, pirates, diseases and the realization that sailing can be a very dangerous and tedious job with little to no pay or reward.
Originally The Caribbean Sail was just a simple construct to test out some basic system functions for a much bigger project, later I decided to release it to get experience marketing and releasing a game properly. The game was almost entirely made from the ground up in two weeks and since going public much more content has been added often.
