The Paper Pirates are on the Precipice of Plummeting into Peril!

Use the A and D keys (or the left and right arrow keys) to move yer lily-levered crew left or right. Keep the ship balanced long enough for the rising tide to sweep ye to safety.

All music, art, and sound effects created from scratch by a core team of six (plus a fiddler and some pirate choristers) in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 49: Unstable.

The web build had audio issues, so for now we only have downloadable for Windows and Mac.

Bugfixes as of Version 1.4:

  • Changed "you" to "ye" in one line of dialogue
  • Adjusted level length to more closely match each music track
  • Changed layer of monster appearance

Bugfixes as of Version 1.5:

  • Fixed a typo
  • Fixed jukebox to display correct description after finishing game
