You have successfully completed your first mission and now know where your fugitive prisoner is hiding. But capturing it looks much harder!
You will have to search a fortified city full of traps, interrogate locals who are not very loquacious and particularly inhospitable, look for clues to solve the mysteries that hover over the fugitive. Riddles, quests and challenges will be the watchwords of your second Pirates adventure!
Your adventure will depend on your choices, because the hero is you!
Pirates: The City of Skulls is a sequel to Pirates: The Great Chase and a comic combined with a game, one title in the Graphic Novel Adventure series subtitled “The comic in which you are the hero”.
You embody a character in a immersive story in which your choices guide your progress.
You have a character sheet akin to those used in role-playing games that tracks your possessions, your special abilities, your coins, and your victory points. In general, gameplay consists in following the comic’s panels — which contain clues, riddles and traps — and making choices about where to go and what to do, while using your visual perception to collect clues and be smart enough to resolve the riddles. As in any game, you can lose — sometimes really badly!
