After almost 3 years of wait, here it comes... The last and greatest chapter of the Cavern Pirates series (following The Treasure Hunt). As a sequel, Captain's Revenge does not only expands and improves literally every single concept and gameplay mechanic introduced in its predecessor, but it also takes a deep dive into totally uncharted territory for the RPG genre of AOK scenarios... Expect a quite *unusual* gameplay ;) Captain's Revenge was made for AOE II: HD Edition - The Forgotten.
After getting rich by selling the notorious captain's treasure to a local pawn shop, you decided to move to the rich neighborhood of Wealthsburg.
Coming back from a good long day spent at the local tavern, you're calmly walking down by the streets of the market square - in the middle of the night - when, suddenly, you hear a weird noise... It seems to be oddly familiar... Familiar it is indeed, because it's the Ghost Captain - the one whose you've taken everything from - wanting revenge for what you've done with his afterlife hideout and his undead crew! He will throw you into the bottom of the ocean and leave you to perish down there, stuck inside of your trusty golden armor.
Fortunately, you're not so easily defeated, thanks specially to the large amount of underwater caves and sunken ships - those which convenently got breathable air inside - present in that part of the ocean.
