The Caribbean Sail is an 8-bit adventure across the Atlantic inspired by The Oregon Trail!
Name your crew, choose your profession, purchase a ship, buy supplies, harpoon fish, and sail at the mercy of the wind. If you survive the voyage and arrive in Nassau, your captain's name will be uploaded to the online leaderboard! If you fail and die horribly, you can leave behind a message in a bottle that you'll find as a marker on your next attempts.
Each vessel is only as fast as it's real life counterpart which will give you an accurate perception of just how difficult and tedious a journey across the ocean was in the 1700's. You'll encounter pirates, storms, disease, starvation and death as you sail 4,341 miles of open ocean.
There are many secrets and eastereggs with more content planned to come, but the experience is fully functional and ready to be played!

Ahoy! I'm Evan, the Captain. I develop, maintain and market this game alone.
Victorian Clambake was created as a publishing name for nautical games I create and using this name provides me with an opportunity to grow a business and pursue this as a career. A few bigger projects are already underway but I decided to go public with The Caribbean Sail first to help me understand how to market and release a game.
