Pirates of New Horizons is a Unity-based 3D platformer. A young girl dreams of riches and adventure, and accidentally finds herself stowed away on a flying pirate ship. Many years later, her crew is captured, and she manages to steer the ship out of harm's way, setting off on her own pirate adventure.
Developer Exit Strategy Entertainment is currently deciding whether to turn this into a full blown game, and hence has released this prototype for you lot to try and comment on. My initial impressions: Oh God yes please make this into a full game right now. There's plenty of lovely platforming and hack-n-slashing fun to be had, and you should definitely give it a try. Certain elements need a bit of a tweak - for example, I'd like to be able to turn the camera a bit faster - and also you're best off if you've got an Xbox 360 controller to play with.
