On your last adventure, a mysterious parrot, with a parchment hung on his leg, landed on your captain’s shoulder. It is certainly not one of those treasure cards as found in all pirate books. No ! This is a message to you. A curse seems to have touched the people of a remote and remote island, and they are desperate for the person who could help them. And if it were you ?Your adventure will depend on your choices, because the hero is you! Pirates: The Cursed Isle is a comic combined with a game, “”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.
