EarthWorks Games’ Forts Takes to the High Seas in this latest DLC

25 Mar

Forts - High Seas on SteamNow available on Steam (PC)

EarthWork Games’ Forts is a video game that encourages players to build structures on the fly to not only protect the base but also prevent resources from being destroyed. It’s gained enough accolades since 2017 to discuss the finer points of strategy and construction on Discord. To refresh the game, this company’s downloadable content has taken the battle to NEARLY everywhere, including the moon!

The High Seas DLC is the latest, and it introduces an all new story and crazy dynamic to make combat tough. Max Capacitor is a captain in the United Navies in search of his father (a scientist) who made a mega-weapon. Whoever finds him first holds the fate of the entire world in his hands. This idea needs a graphic novel to fill in the character development, and until that happens, the cut scenes shouldn’t be skipped.

Players have to deal with buoyancy physics. Like the original, you can’t stack haphazardly without causing the building to collapse. In this latest, you can’t weigh down your own ship.

Which Witchy ‘wich is Best with this Kickstarter?

Card game creators Janelle Jones and Sanji Moore ‘wich you can help by contributing to the Kickstarter here. Okay, now that bad pun is out of my system, I can say this sandwich making card game is on its last week to sailing to success. It’s always fun to unlock the stretch goals in these crowdfunding campaigns, and what’s offered are thank you’s to everyone who contributed to this party card game. The idea is certainly perfect for moms and creative types looking for new ideas to craft up for their kids next meal (or themselves). I’m sure they’ve heard enough whines of not peanut butter and jelly again. The question I have is if jellyfish is a valid condiment? As an Asian, some of us do love this treat!

In addition to the staple ingredients, there’s impossible to eat stuff like glass (unless it’s made of candy) that you have to include in your final product which you have to convince players is the best. Gordon Ramsey, look out!

There’s no magical djinni to transform the weird to the fantastic, and nor is there Wesley, the farm hand from Princess Bride to take on every request from the lovely Buttercup. I can’t help but wonder if Fezzik the giant would eat anything presented to him, but this game isn’t about a certain Life brand cereal. Mikey wouldn’t eat the ideas made up here.
