Ahoy Blockers!

sid meier's pirates boxartWelcome to episode 54 where we’ll be discussing the 1987 Microprose action/adventure/strategy title Sid Meier’s Pirates!

Now this is when I usually have the news, I’ve decided for the time being to drop the news section from the show and see how that goes. If you think I should put the news back in, let me know at podcast@umbcast.com.

We then get to the main event, Pirates! As always we discuss the genre, story, gameplay, tech focus and dev story.

Also, a bit of a recommendation: Friend of the show Chris was recently on the DOS Nostalgia Podcast and did an AMAZING rundown of DOS-era flight sims. If you have any fond memories of flight sims, you should check out episode 9 of the show (in addition to other shows on other topics).
