Pirates of the Caribean MMO

So there's going to be a Pirates of the Caribbean MMO http://imdb.com/news/sb/2005-04-26/#3

Mind this quote from the managing director of Disney Online: "Fans of the movies and theme park attraction will be able to live their own unfolding pirate adventure through the game, including searching for lost treasures and battling numerous enemies on land and at sea."

Well, there's already a very cool MMO that does this very successfully, Puzzle Pirates. It's easy to play, you can play for hours or for five minutes. There's swashbuckling, pillaging, drinking, gambling, ship crafting, rum brewing, dye mixing, and a bunch of other stuff (all made into puzzles). And it's not very expensive. Give it a try (you can get 10 sessions for free) before Disney realizes and tries to buy it.

  • Well, that's not really an argument against them. It would be like telling Blizzard as they were making WoW, that there is already an MMo that does that, Everquest. Also assumedly the mechanics of this MMO would be very different than Puzzle Pirates.

    Frankly, I think there is room for two pirate MMOs.

  • Well, what bothered me of the announcements I read was that the MMO was presented as something new, with "novel concepts". Otherwise, I would not have made an entry on the blog.
