Blackwake - Multiplayer ship combat in the 18th century gets a Kickstarter

Game Type : Action, Multplayer
Platforms : PC, Mac, Linux
Developer : Empire Gate
Authors Description : Blackwake is a multiplayer fps naval game set in the 18th century. Set during the Age of Sail, Blackwake focuses largely on team based tactics and overall cooperation. Organizing a broadside, assisting your captain in navigating various weather conditions, or just being part of the gun crew - there are many roles to be filled in this shooter

Further Description : Blackwake is match based, playing out in simple faction vs faction and/or objectives in a variety of game modes. Winning will require team work and planning. While the captain will be able to broadcast orders, the crew will still need to listen. Victory relies on the abilities of both captain and crew. Playable factions will include English, French, Spanish, Dutch & Pirates.
Kickstarter Goal : $34,000

Our Thoughts : It's nice to see a developer taking the Age of Sail approach and adding in multiplayer for close up ship based combat. The added addition of weather affects and being able to play in first person will really add to the immersion, as such I for one will be backing this project and hope their Frigate sails for a Kickstarter success.
