Genre: action adventure Platform: PC New finnish game
development company Encore Games is looking for a publisher for
their game East India Company, scheduled for release on 2008.
The game is set on 18th century high seas and has exceptionally
strong storyline. Player assumes the role young captain of
british East India Company, set out to find out who exactly was
the pirate who murdered his father and brother and to avenge
them. The game world spans from London to Aceh. Player can
decide which role to take, be it trader, pirate or soldier.
More than 100 missions provide challenges for all roles. The
game focuses strongly on player ship and naval battles. There
are 10 different ship types to choose from, from small and
agile sloops to lumbering merchantmen and to ships-of-the-line
that bristle whit powerful cannons. Special characters are
hired and used to boost the abilities of the ship and her crew.
Special characters include such persons as marine snipers,
surgeon, cannon officer and navigator. Different weather modes
make naval battles challenging but fun and visually stunning.
Bloody boarding actions are included as means to take over
enemy ships and steal their cargo. Trading and exploring exotic
locations are also a big part of the gaming experience. There
are more than 40 cities, towns and villages to visit and do
trading in. Beyond wealth, there is also military and political
power to be acquired. And no, there is no dancing. Historical
backround Perhaps the most powerful company ever, British East
Indian Company dominated trade, politics and military situation
in the East Indies during middle 18th century. East Indian co.
was a nation of its own: it had rights to print money, have
standing armies, declare wars and of course it dominated the
highly profitable trade, hauling tea, spices, gold, diamonds
and other items back to Europe. It was a time when a single
man, regardless of his backround, could create his fortune in
the exotic lands full of adventure but also perils. Such a man
was Robert Clive for example, simple scribe who rose to be
governor and high commander, became a lord and amassed wealth
beyond what normal man could imagine. William Kidd, notorius
Captain Kidd, was not so lucky. Originally pirate hunter, Kidd
turned to piracy himself and met his end at the gallows pole.
But legend says, he had time to bury his treasure to some
hidden location Those were dangerous times and many
perished. Pirates plagued the trading routes, british, dutch
and french fought for the domination of East Indies, local
maharajas had huge wealth and equally huge armies in their
command. Player faces all the opportunities and perils this
rich backround provides. About Encore Games Encore Games is
