Synopsis

Plot

You are cast in the role of one of the pirates of the infamous captain Bandroll. Having recently docked 'The Sea Queen' at Port Mundore you have volunteered to help the ships press gang to enrol some new 'shipmates' from the local inn, 'The Seven Seas'. The idea is that you enter the inn while the press gang hide outside waiting to escort the new pirates to the ship. You must act quickly because the town guards are hunting for Bandroll. So the ship will leave if you don't finish your job on time.

Having stolen the booty of a few merchant ships, the captain wishes to hide the treasure away on an island far out at sea and surrounded by dangerous reefs. (These he says will discourage others). Your second task therefore, is to bury the treasure. (And that’s not as easy as you may think!)

Notes

Writing in a thread on Stardot the author of the game commented

I'm the author of The Sea Queen. I transferred it from a tape I found in my parents attic many, many moons ago..

Unfortunately, it appears to be an earlier version - The fight sequence in the tavern isn't properly implemented & there's some small bugs in part 2 (Both parts are in the same file) which I know I fixed in the final version. It's still possible to complete though.

I remember designing it when I was around 14 and trying to program it in basic, but never managed to finish it. Then a couple of years later I bought The Quill & used that instead.
