CLICK HERE TO GET THE ROLLING DEMO!

Features

Bucanneer II is an adventure game about Richard McRoch, an ex-Buccaneer turned merchant. In part I, we learned little tidbits about his life, his relation to Margareth and discovered a betrayal.

Now, in Buccaneer II, we learn the rest.

* A medium/full-length adventure game spanning over 5 game days.
* Completely digital soundtrack by Vel.
* 320 x 200 in 16 bit colours
* Using the by now familiar GUI from Proskrito, closely modelled after the one used in Fate Of Atlantis.
* A continuation of the tale begun with "Buccaneer". Learn more about Richard, Margareth and a myriad of other characters that populate Renaissance Amsterdam!
* Uses the awesome Rain/Snow plugin by Scorpiorus!
* Swordfighting (skipable). (being scripted by [ ... ])
* Fabulous character art by Regnum Eternum.

Excellent!  I don't suppose you have any sort of projected release date for this?

I'm aiming for an early 2004 release. It'll probably take till Spring, though. What with work and all that taking up my time.  :-\

Thanks, Squinks. Finish Pirate Fry 2, though. ;)

Also, I've made a tutorial on how to draw a background like this. Back in the Critic's Lounge when I posted a picture from "Depths of Clearbay", someone asked for this.

Enjoy!

Thanks, Vel. :)

Help requested: Is there anyone out there who could make me a decent .ICO file for use with Buccaneer II? In Buccaneer I used the standard AGS icon, but for this one, I'm looking for something to make it a tad bit more special...

Mail your results to me at info@unosar.com... you'll get a notice in the Credits!

Hobbes, why don't you get someone to make midis especially for B2?

I would love to have someone compose MIDI files for Buccaneer II... it's just something I haven't explored yet. But, if anyone is willing, send in something!

Ok, Foz, I've PM'ed you. If anyone else wants to make music for the game, just contact me, I'd say.

Oh, and I've spent the afternoon doodling away...



It's Richard's bedroom! Guess his addiction... ;)

Updated the first post.

Errr... I notice only now that in each screenshot, Richard's profile is the same.. darnit, almost as if he's hiding the right side of his body!
