Drink like a Pirate

Drink like a Pirate


Drink like a Pirate is a sea shanty rhythm game. Using a tankard you need to smash, bash and crash your controller with your partner to the salty sea rhythm. For full effect get a sea shanty orchestra! The intention is to get players to keep the traditions of sea shanty song alive and well, by getting the player to partake in the old tradition.

The game uses tankards as alternative controllers, to create a unique experience around a sea shanty where they can almost taste the sea and experience a small section of the sea life. The game was created with the intention of a live experience. Costumes and a live orchestra was the intention to really immerse the player in the experience.
