Seas of Fortune developer Trym Studios has launched a Steam page for players to “take part in the discussions or ask any questions” about the game.
Seas of Fortune is a first-person sailing game that takes place during the 16th and 17th centuries. The game “blends simulation, adventure, and role-playing” as players choose to be a merchant or whaler when they set out from port.
As the captain, players must “keep morale up, supplies stocked and the ship in repair” while finding treasures, earning gold to upgrade the ship, and interacting with the crew. Protecting the cargo will not necessarily be simple, as pirates and hostile nations seek to plunder the ship.
The announcement of the Steam page was included in an update that highlights the most recent technology changes that have been made to the game. The update mentioned three different areas that were addressed: new features, improvements, and bug fixes.
The studio also noted how it is experimenting with different crew options for players. A helmsman was described as a crew member who could sail the ship while players explore the ship. The helmsman is able to be controlled from any part of the ship too.
No release date has yet been announced.
