The Story So Far
King of Seas is an action RPG set in the midst of tropical islands, ancient treasure and crystal blue oceans stretching further than the eye can see. However, all is not dandy for the pirates in this world, as many years ago the Kingdom of the Seven Seas established their dominance. They won an all important war, giving them the power to banish all pirates and magic from the seas. The Kingdom then built a fort to protect itself and keep the pirates at bay, but not all pirates have fallen. Some still live by their own laws, looting, killing and fighting.
As the game starts out, the player will take the role of a royal descendant within the Kingdom. The king is assassinated and everyone blames the player for the murder. They are banished from the fort and left to their own devices, so their only hope for survival is the very pirates their Kingdom banished years ago.
The player will aim to figure out what happened to their father and regain their rightful claim to the throne. Along the way, they’ll meet eccentric characters, collect mysterious treasure and encounter plenty of enemies. King of Seas is mostly quest-based, but there is a massive, procedurally generated world to uncover and a legend to build, as well. Every battle won will grow the player’s legend — and they can even compare their ranking with the most famous pirates in history.
