    It's very nice looking but I hope developers can change the fantasy part to non-existent and keep it real Caribbean!

    Editted today since I figured it sounded a bit offensive towards certain folks. :oops:

    Please remind me in two weeks to put this on Facebook.
    I tried just now using my phone, but that isn't working very well.

    Well there is a good reason for this. Originally I was going to Just have humans, and some animals.. However, if an area of the game requires numerous humans (enemies) - they all need to look different, or have their faces covered, because if they all look the same - it looks weird and out of place as we are adapted to recognize peoples faces. Animals and monsters can all look the same, and it doesn't look out of place, so they can be cloned. Which is why so many games do this.
    I would love to spend years carving out hundreds of individual pirates, however, its a question of time. So the game is alot larger now because I can fill parts up with monsters, and still have quite a few individual NPCs which are unique (about 35 so far). There are individually carved pirates in the game, and they operate as a group however, for variety I have put in other creatures, as I personally don't like games with just 1 type of foe.

    Definitely, a lack of variety will hurt a large amount of players, rather than the contrary that solely want it. Especially if it's focused a lot on land combat. Either way, an opinion is one thing but stating that devs are ruining their games as if it were a fact is a bit much.

    Best of luck Phil games looking good so far.

    I actually like the fantasy stuff and wouldn't call it crap - it's just a matter of taste.
    Would also like to see more Urban Fantasy-games.
    While I'm wondering how you are supposed to fight a kraken on foot, only with an axe.

    Already asked some friends to vote for this game too, it really looks like one of the pirate games (Next to "Hearts of Oaks") I waited years for.

    Because i guess the majority of us still think that can be fun. I dont mind it at all - all though I prefer realism and history, I also like the thrill of mystic elements and fantasy sidesteps.

    Those who dont like that kind of gameplay can play Hearts of Oak instead ;)

    I welcome fantasy stuff in any pirate game if it is implemented in such a way that it is avoidable for those people who don't like it.

    Hi all, Blue Horizon is currently off Greenlight, as site traffic had slowed too much to make a decent impact in the top 100. However, I am working on another route to get it Published so please bear with me, for now stay tuned on the other sites its on, such as Twitter (@bluehorizongame), indiedb, the facebook page and of course the website.

    So you wonder how you fight the 'Kraken' on foot with an axe.. well, I can assure you.. there IS a way to fight it with an axe! (You may have to get wet).
  11. CaptnLysop
    Any chance of Blue Horizon coming on GOG.com, I am not fond of Steam too much. Maybe after it's off of Greenlight and gone Gold?

    I mean, the way the game looks, and the way it seems to be controlled, make it insanely interesting. But godforsaken Steam...
  12. Pieter Boelen
    Doesn't it have to be finished and released before it can be a Good OLD Game? :cheeky

    Its old to me! Steam is just the first platform, hopefully there will be others its released on. Maybe Humble Bundle? - I will look into GOG (Just for you CaptnLysop)
    Anyway, I will be concentrating finishing it next year as I am not employed anymore with my current company.

    Check twitter Blue Horizon Game (@bluehorizongame) | Twitter and facebook Blue Horizon | Facebook for updates on the progress - of which there is alot!

    (Lets all have a dance to celebrate this !)

    A pirate game without sex, drugs, slavery and smoking just ain`t a pirate game...
  18. Capt. Phil
    Well there is lots of other things which make it Piratey such as killing, blood, shooting, alcohol, hunting, looting, theft, and generally blowing everything up with a cannonball.
    Adding in the other highest aged related elements will reduce the target audience considerably, and its been made so you won't miss them.
  19. Oldtimer

    to me smoking is less offensive than killing. But it`s your vision, I`m all for historical accuracy, you`re not. Pity as the game looks very, very promising.

    Rgds, Oldtimer
