My entry for the 2010 7-Day Roguelike Challenge was a pirate-themed game. I'm mostly just including this page for historical purposes, as the game itself is more of a "winnable tech demo" than an actual game. Still, there aren't very many pirate-themed roguelikes and I like the ship-and-captain dual mechanic. Also you can "board" the kraken.

The Game

You can download the source (python) here. This version contains tiny bug fixes made after the official challenge deadline as well as additional keymapping via the included keys.cfg file.

If you are a traditionalist you can play the original version here.
