Meet Billy Boney! / Last 3 Days!
over 3 years ago – Fri, Dec 29, 2017 at 04:11:05 PM

Hey everybody!

As the campaign rolls along, we'd like to introduce another character aiming to put a kink in Skull Queen's plan for pirate glory, Billy Boney:

William "Billy" Boney is a bounty hunter known for his tenacity and feared for his brutality. In a prior life, Billy had been an extremely successful sheriff, so effective that the little frontier town he protected ceased to have any dangerous crime at all. With little to do, a bored Billy started strictly enforcing even the most minor of laws, doling out street justice that kept the community in a state of pacified fear. But when Billy shot a boy for littering, it was too much and the citizens came together, running him out of town.

Still with a need to bring the lawless to heel and nowhere to do it, Billy became a gun for hire. He's spent years traveling the world, capturing fugitives and bringing them to justice. As Skull Queen's activities become noticed on Catannia, Billy is sure to get the call to track her SkullPirates down and put a stop to them.

The Final Stretch

We just have a little under three days left in the campaign, so we're running out of time to achieve the remaining stretch goals for the game, including the expanded ship combat gameplay and voiced characters. But we're still hopeful! Help us out in the final days by sharing the campaign with anyone you know who might be interested and we can get there!


Captain's Edition Box Art!

As promised, this week we're showing off the box art for the Captain's Edition of SkullPirates. So, without further ado:

As you can see, the collector's box for the Captain's Edition will feature a painted scene of Skull Queen and her bony buccaneers fleeing from a very angry assortment of Catannian security forces. Here's a closer look:

We're incredibly happy with how the design has turned out and we hope you like it as much as we do.

Thanks again for supporting SkullPirates!
