Pirates of Gravitae

What happens when you put a jet engine on a pirate ship? Well, in the real world, it would spell certain doom, but in the upcoming roguelite Pirates of Gravitae, it leads to flying pirate ships that zip around the sky like rockets.

Today, developer and publisher Innerverse Games announced that Pirates of Gravitae will be launching in Early Access on March 31, 2022, for the low, low price of $9.99. Plus, there will be a 10% discount at release, saving you a hard-earned buck.

The game initially started as a personal project by Taylan Kadayifcioglu that was designed to entertain his children. In 2021, Kadayifcioglu was laid off (a very familiar story in 2020 and 2021) and decided to form Innerverse and turn his prototype into a full-fledged game. As it turns out, that process bore fruit, and the world will get a taste of that fruit in March.

  • Variety of collectible perks allowing different ‘builds’ for each run
  • Variable time of day, weather and flight conditions

And here’s a more robust list from a recent press release:

  • Combine up to three from 13 different weapons, defensive measures, and maneuvers (more coming) to find your optimal load-out
  • Equip your sailors with over 60 different randomized loot items, allowing different ‘builds’ for each run (more coming)
