This download is a cinematic and does not contain a playable level - that will follow in a few short weeks.
It's 1665, Hamburg, 100 years after the battle for Malta, and a wealthy investor hires a mysterious adventurer to reap the spoils of the New World. The journey to the Americas is fraught with danger, and the greedy English have already claimed their stake. It is said fierce wild savages roam the vast, free, and open New lands, with a hunger for scalps. Worse still, evil spirits are rumored to lurk in the dark endless forests, evoking the wrath of nature upon any errant souls who dare set foot upon them.
Amids this background of danger and intrigue, a greater secret is yet to be revealed. Join in the high stakes game with the ultimate reward...if you can live to see it. View the opening cinematic to see the remarkable story!
The cinematic contains a full recreation of the German home city, presented in vivid and beautiful detail.
See the project thread at:
File contains modded material including a new proto.xml, custom music, and a new texture for the galleon sails. Full install notes are provided with a section that explains installing modded material if you're new to modifying your game.
I will update this file with the scenario and ending cinematic once they're complete. I hope you enjoy this cinematic. Please feel free to rate the work as well as make comments!

Thanks James for watching and commenting on the work.
I am so glad that in spite of being a cine and including modded material that people have taken the time to look at it. More comments would be nice as would a rating but maybe I have to wait until I attach the level. Can't wait, playtesting now and Felix is going to be working on the AI right away. Yay, so far on target for release.
