Hi, I bought the game on itch.io, and I didn't realize you had to pay for it on steam or kickstarter to get the game guide. It seems like since I've already gotten it on itch.io I would have to pay for the game again on either site to access the guide. is there any other way to buy it? thanks, it's really fun so far

so excited for this! does anyone else have issues opening the mac version of the game?
Oh no, could you send me your Mac spec info?
Have you tried these steps:
1. Allow apps to be downloaded from anywhere from System Preferences.
2. Make sure to move the entire folder to the Applications section after extracting the .zip.
If that doesn't work, please let me know if you receive an error report, what it says, and what your OS is! Ren'Py officially supports Mac OS X 10.4+. If all this doesn't work, you can try using Wine to open the Windows version.
yup, i've followed these steps! even after i grant access to open the app under my Security & Privacy settings, the app won't open. the icon just bounces once. there's no error message.
i'm using Monterey (version 12.5.1).
Hi! I'm a mac user as well and something that's worked for me is right click on the application and then click "Show Package Contents." After you do that, MacOS, then the exec file that says "TSP" and it should open! Let me know if this doesn't work.
The same thing has happened to me with a few apps so I found this workaround. All games run as normal even if I open them this way. Hope this helps! :)
this worked for me! thanks so much <3
I remember being in high school when I played the first demo for this!! I'm in my second year of college now and I saw the release pop up in my feed. I'm so excited to play this, and congrats on the release :D
Thank you so much! It makes me happy to hear that :D I was in uni when I first joined the game jam, and now I've graduated! Time really flies :) I hope you enjoy! ♥
Oh my god, I came back here after year(s?) and I am so pleasently surprised to see how the game looks now! It's STUNNING, so happy to see it moved into such amazing direction and you are finishing it! It's a rare thing to see! Can't wait to play the full game, good luck with everything <3
Thank you so much! ♥ I can't believe it's been over three years! I'm so excited to be able to share the full game with everyone this autumn! ☺
Hi, yeah I was playing the game, and I think I downloaded the beta version. The pictures said 'locked for Alpha' and I simply couldn't get a good ending no matter what I did. Otherwise, the game is really good. The characters seem like actual people, with stories behind them. Even the main character is really enjoyable to play.
Oh no! The game currently only has an alpha demo available, however, you should be able to get onto the start of each route! There are only a few lines indicating which route you got at the moment, so you're not missing too much, but here are some tips:
- Participate in battle with AND eat with the same guy (you will have to say no to Lark's offer in battle to get Flint's offer, etc.)
- Accept their offers to spend more time with them
- In general, Rico prefers bold answers, Flint prefers diplomatic, and Lark prefers humourous (there are exceptions, though!)
- Consult the Friendship Meter from time to time to see how your standings are with the guys (the romance meter only matters for the full game). You can find this under the "Crew" section of the journal. The max fill for the demo is about half of the bar.
- Lark's route is the easiest to get, then Flint, and finally Rico's.
Let me know if this helps! We're hoping to release the full game in about a year's time, so you can look for the release date around then. Thank you for playing, I'm glad you enjoyed the rest of the demo! :D
I just started playing this demo and i would like to suggest adding something so you know which options go to which stats? as someone who is autistic it's kind of hard for me to know which goes with which...
Thank you for playing our demo! If you're referring to the dialogue choices as "bold, aggressive, or diplomatic", sometimes we purposely make the options less obviously bold/aggressive/diplomatic to encourage players (neurotypical and otherwise) to choose what option they like best, rather than because the option is bold/aggressive/diplomatic. Also, it is worth noting that there are options that won't fall into these categories. However, upon release, there will be guides (including complete guides available via our upcoming Kickstarter) that will give complete details about which choices increase which stat, which should help.
If you're referring to something else, however, please let us know! Or if there are other options that would make your experience more enjoyable, we would love to hear.
Playing this while listening to sea shanties is just an amazing vibe (I would suggest "Soon May The Wellermen Come")
Great suggestion! I also recommend the Jimmie MacGregor rendition of "Henry Martin", as it's a song we may use in the full game ;)
I loved the demo when I played it ages ago, is the project still going ahead? :))
Any updates on this project? Still excited for it!
Thank you for your continued interest! No major updates yet, but it is still being worked on. In terms of writing, Flint and Lark's routes are complete and Rico's currently has around 60K.
How have I not found this before- I'm playing the demo and love it - I especially love both Flint and Rico - From reading the descriptions and first meeting I was leaning more towards Flint but Rico and the main character have amazing banter. Props to whoever wrote those exchanges :D
Edit: I also love the music and I'm assuming it was especially made for this visual novel as it seems pirate themed and I haven't heard it before while some other visual novels and games I've played use the same non licensed stuff.
Hi! Glad to hear you enjoyed the demo and the banter! The music is actually free for non-commercial projects, some of it provided by Derek & Brandon Fiecher and the rest by Alcaknight! We were lucky to find such talented artists with pieces well-suited for the game. Finding royalty-free music suited for a pirate-themed game was tricky!
Do you guys have an update? Maybe even a release date?
The scripts for two of the routes are done, and the third (Rico's) is in progress! However, we won't be posting any updates until there is a major art update or something along those lines. Thank you for your continued support!
I LOVED THIS! Everything about it from the writing, to Isabel's personality was amazing! Please let us know anything we can do to support you guys! I'm definitely craving more.
Thank you! We're happy you enjoyed it! The current writing schedule is looking at major progress up through November, so there should hopefully be an update around December or the New Year!
Ok, so first of all- I just ADORE the artstyle, it's so pretty and I just love it so much! Second of all- may I just say that I instantly fell in love with Flint and Rico, They're both cute in their own different way.
And lastly, the writing, oh my god. The writing was so good.
I can't wait for more of this game! Will definitely be looking out for it in the future. Good luck!
Thank you for the feedback! We're so happy you enjoyed the demo. Progress is quiet, but still continuing! :)
Really delightful demo ~ I had so much fun with the story and characters (all written SO well)! I look forward seeing this project progress. :)
Just finished the whole demo in one sitting and I have to say; I am absolutely charmed by the characters, and the story is equally as enjoyable as well. Really looking forward to the full release of the game. Best of luck, devs!
hey how is progress?
Hi! Right now everything is on pause until May. I (the writer) am back in school for the time-being, but once I'm done I'll have time to continue writing and reassess the situation in terms of artwork etc. Thank you for your interest!
Loved this game! Nice artworks, perfect storic background! Really like all the three guys. Kudos!
I just finished the demo and I really liked it! I loved the characters and MC! I can't wait to play the full version! Do you have an estimated release date yet?
Thank you! I'm glad to hear that. We haven't estimated a release date yet, but we will announce it as soon as we have an idea!
This game is amazing!! Can't wait to play the full version!! Rico is so hunky!!!
Amazing demo! The guys are charming, and the protag is amazing. Can't wait for the full game!
