Best played with the lights turned off and the volume turned up, Black Sails is a creepy and mysterious point-and-click adventure game.
A shipwreck. Having lost all hope, two survivors cling to wreckage, trying to survive a few more minutes in the raging sea. Until another ship appears. Hoping for rescue, they are calling out, but nobody answers. They manage to go on board. Will this be their rescue? Or their grave?
Inspired by a true story, the player experiences a journey into the darkest abyss of the human soul until he cannot tell between truth and fiction anymore.
Having been released in Germany a few years ago, gathering much acclaim for its focused story and strong plot, Black Sails is now available with full English localization for the first time ever. We hope you'll enjoy it.

Black sails is a point and click adventure ,your ship crashes during a storm , you play as a survivor of said crash called Anna , Anna survives by holding on to a floating log with a men called Lex , they find a mysterious ship and decide to take refuge in it , and they realize that it's a haunted ship and their curiosity gets them to start exploring its under cabins looking for answers, they find diaries and notes and start to get visions of the former ship crew , one problem is the notes which are written in a font that is too small and hard to read even if you squint too much, gameplay is composed of solving puzzles,collecting and combining objects you find to make tools that help solve aforementioned puzzles , you also engage in dialogues and have options to choose from which may change the course of your story line depending on your choice , you can play the entire game with a mouse only and it's very accessible , graphics are okay and serviceable , character models feel odd and lip syncing is poor , but it doesn't change the experience , the music is very spooky and ambient and makes it more immersive , voice acting is alright although it falls short sometimes , i experienced some clipping issues with models but they weren't game breaking , and for highlighted objects , there was an object that wasn't highlighted and couldn't progress for a while searching for said object, otherwise the game is a whole lot of fun and if you're a point and click fan it's definitely worth checking out .
