Ubi Sails Puzzle Pirates to Retail
8:03 AM | Marcus Albers | Comment on this story

Game developer Three Rings announced in 2003 the release of a beta of its new online multiplayer game, Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates. Now, nearly two years later, Ubisoft has announced that it will be releasing the renamed Puzzle Pirates in April for Macintosh, Windows, and Linux platforms.

Puzzle Pirates moves away from the standard online multiplayer fare in favor of cartoon graphics and multiplayer puzzles. The game won Three Rings awards in the Technical Excellence and Audience Award categories at the 2004 Independent Games Festival.

Here's a snippet about the game from the official Puzzle Pirates site:

Puzzle Pirates is an online game in which you play a Pirate character in an ocean world. Hundreds of your fellow player Pirates swarm these Isles and Sea-lanes. For Pirates who love acronyms, Puzzle Pirates is an massively multi-player online roleplaying game, or mmoarrrrpg.

Pirates can wander around on land and sail the thirty-seven seas with their crew. When your Pirate sails, or swordfights, or navigates, the appropriate Puzzle game is launched. Good Puzzling thereby brings victories and accrues great fortunes to you and your fellow Pirates.

The game will retail for $19.95, and will cost $9.95 per month to play online. The retail box will include a free month of online play, as well as single-player offline versions of some of the puzzles. Head over to the official website to download a demo of the game, and stay with IMG for further announcements as the game nears release.
