AN OPEN WORLD ADVENTURE
The year is 1686, and you must make your way through the Caribbean world on the Blue Horizon to find your fortune and seek revenge on the evil Pirate Captain Bloodbeard! A first person desktop game filled with adventure, discovery and combat.
Blue Horizon has been created so that the player is in a large open world environment, each part of the game, although separate can be explored.
There is only one level, always viewable on the horizon. The game consists of 8 Islands, the player must discover each location in order to explore it. Locations can be discovered by talking to NPCs (Non-Playable characters), or by following maps found by the player. Once a location has been found it can be travelled to and from using a ship.
Tropical Islands with towns, villages, forts, dunes, mountains, cave systems, giant caverns, ship wrecks, and forests all lay in wait for the player to find and explore.
Inventory and Items
Weapons, equipment, books, and valuable loot are found laying around in containers or purchased from shops and peddlers, stolen from enemies, or received as rewards for completing tasks. Keys are required for some doors too.
Weapons are currently melee, pistols and cannon emplacements.
Equipment or a pistol can also be held in the left hand, such as the Lantern for seeing in dark caves. Provisions are needed to restore health, enhancement items can also be found or purchased.
To progress, one must complete tasks given by NPCs or from instructions found by the player. The NPCs will be grateful, whether they are for the main quest or side missions. Tasks may involve collecting, farming, building, hunting, slaying or completing another task. Hidden stashes and Bounty hunting are available from NPCs.
There are dangerous islands, and relatively safe islands. Unique foes await, be they Pirates, animals or strange creatures, undead and non-human. Some enemies are weak, some are strong and have various short and long range attacks. Some individuals you encounter will be docile until provoked, in which case they may attack as a group.
Enemy ships can plague the player. Captain Bloodbeard's ship is the main aggressor, bosses await on completion of the main story line. The seas contain marauding pirate ships which you may encounter when sailing from island to island.
