This latest game on Steam which as of this moment is still in early access, is a satirical turn-based strategy game featuring unique "living map" graphics, where you lead a group of crazed captains and eradicate legendary monsters in order to allow Christopher Columbus the discovery of the New World.

Fallout - An amazing game reviewed by Cola Powered Gamer

Its development process was rough and full of problems, but the result is one great game
