I was deep in my cups when the mutiny began. Even still, I’d split the pate of two with my cutlass before they’d torn it, dripping, from my hands and thrown me in the hold. A week I’d been left down there, with naught but the rats to stay my loneliness, and starvation.

It was there amid the rancid bilge I had my notion - A dread crew incapable of mutiny - of treachery - of anything beyond slaking their insatiable lust for blood! So, with hope renewed, I made good my escape...

And now, with the infernal wailing of my new shipmates filling the sails, we embark to find our fortune, and may terror fill any that cross our bow.

Fun game, two player would be a blast.

Well done game, can be more polish:

- At first, I've no idea how to play da game, simple tut is nice

- Is there different type of bomb ? tell us 

- How to heal?

- More type of emenies

- Shift command would be cool

- Who make the babies do all the work, is this child abuse :/

Would like this more if it was turn based, its a really good game tho! looks amazing :D


They grow up so fast, haha.

I just love that I'm needing more shipmates and I just casually swing by an orphanage. That's still making me giggle.

I'm not normally one for endless style games, but really did get a kick out of this one! The itch randomizer sent me here I believe and I'm very glad it did! The graphics looked great and I had a wonderful time knocking out other ships.

Curious if your shipmate count ever goes up? Cause part of me just wants to have a full ship of babies wandering around. It's playing out so well in my head XD

Very nice game. I sunk 8 ships on my first try :)
The artwork is really good and conveys the intention well.

jesus fucking christ


ok ok ok ok, imagine this, but multiplayer


whoa the game is so cool !!


This game is very well done. but I would like if you could add more variants of enemies, such as more animals, new types of cannon balls, a story mode, something like that, but the game is really, well done

Great stuff, really fun little game.


Awesome game, but doesn't exactly fit the opening cutscene.


This Game Is Epic!!!!!!!!

Great Job 


Great game! This is a simple and deep rts game,  so inspiring! : )


Fantastic job! hahaha
7 ships on my first time! xD


really cool, the one thing ill say is to make it so the route taking thing for going over more than one tile make it so you go over the least broken tiels possible, as my guys kept getting stuck fixing things


Awesome game. well done!

Awesome game. Got really addicted to it a bit ago and decided to make a video on it. I love the set up and there can actually be a decent amount of strategy involved. I'd be tight to see this format in a longer format with upgrades, different baby classes, etc.

I find the basic premise of your game ravishingly silly and had to smile when I played it. <3 The pixel art and the audio comments are just great, everything feels very polished and juicy, that was once again a top performance of you. :) No wonder it made this game of you in the list of recommendations once again on our blog! : D A gameplay video was also produced again. <3 Oh, and... Were the baby noises the ones of your own actual kids? I mean, you are the SeaDads after all. :P

Best wishes,

Top stuff. 9 was my best

Holy crab this is good! You guys are amaaaazingggg!!


Great game...except I can only take so much baby wailing!  :)
