Ready to satisfy everyone's Pirating desires comes Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy. Developed by Stickman Studios and partnered with Blitz1>UP the game had a tremendous response during its beta tests, and is now unleashed into the marketplace.

This new title focuses firmly on arcade action with accessible controls, high quality visual and tons of gameplay. In single player you are tasked with transforming your poor rag-torn crew and basic ship into the wealthiest pirates sailing the Caribbean in their awesome galleon! Featuring 56 missions and non-linear progression the single player alone is enough to satisfy most gamers' needs.

But that's not all! If you've got the skills then you need to adorn your best eye-patch and show your teamplay prowess in the online multiplayer games. With 10 varied maps and tons of emergent strategies to embrace, this aspect of the game will be a blessing for gamers looking for a Team-Fortress fix with a twist.

Says Harvey Greensall, co-founder of Stickman Studios, "We were really pleased with the success of the beta test phase, which proved that the game is as much fun as we'd hoped. Now thatwe've launched it's fantastic to see the tactics that people are discovering with our game."

This focus on gameplay certainly hasn't meant a compromise of visuals however. "What impressed us most with Stickman Studios was their ability to create such high quality graphics while always managing to focus on how well the game plays at the same time." says Chris Swan, Business Development Director for Blitz Arcade. "The result is a beautiful title that is a true pleasure to play: one minute you're soaking up the serene beauty of the Caribbean; the next moment you see a crow's nest coming around the corner of an island and all Hell breaks loose! This is a game that's really going to make people stand up and notice the what can be achieved on the indie circuit"
