Especially cause shell need it, boyo! Shes gotta go through the entire kingdom of Lineria, from the mechanized forest of Shellwood to the steep climb of Eastwest Mountain, shes gotta hop bop n roll through it all!But yanno, lifes not all about violence, boyo, this whole kingdoms full of oddballs, weirdos, serious individuals with deep backstories, and octopi looking for some help! Do the whole hero thing enough times and theyll give you emblems to mess around with thatll let you change up the game! Thats in addition to secret feathers, bestiary entries, permanent upgrades, and all that good stuff that makes a game worth playing, boyo, this is the full deal!Thats all I gotta say, boyo, find me in the game at my Very Special Item Shop (TM) and youll see for yourself!Renaine is a game about overcoming failure. Aine, the Phoenix Knight, is tasked by fate to destroy the legendary Dragon. Should she die, she will return. Again and again until the Dragon is slain.Hop, Bop and Roll through Lineria, the world of Renaine! Chat up a cast of colorful characters! Solve problems! Fail! A lot! Overcome failure! Fail again!

Seriously, whos idea was that? But yanno, me and my core team of way-too-good-for-me devs have kept at this for so many years cause we deeply believe in it. We believe this game deserves to exist, its story deserves to be told, its world deserves to be explored, and we have worked tirelessly in service of that. From day one what weve wanted was to make something you come back to a decade from now and think about. We hope that you get to know Aine and her world, and we hope through figuring this game out, youll feel that you yourself are a part of this too. For as long as Ive lived Ive dreamed of making a world that people would want to explore filled with characters that theyd get to know and feel for. Through its loooong development, however, Ive discovered a game is greater than its parts. Lemme tell you - it took us two Kickstarters to make this happen. We got our butt kicked hard repeatedly. But what brought us back up every time was the community, our humble Discord, our backers, our fan artists and speedrunners. This game is not just about Aines journey, its not just about yours either, what this game is about is the journey we all take together. That special connection people have when they join together to do the impossible, to slay that dragon, thats what this games about. It took a gajillion hours of effort from way more people than just the core dev team to make this happen, and hopefully it shows. I hope Renaine is gonna be that kind of game that lasts, a true modern classic, and wed be honored if youd join us to its finish!

Gentlemen of Fortune: Maelstrom


Gentlemen of Fortune: Maelstrom video game by ChezJfrey

Made by ChezJfrey

Welcome me Hearties to Gentlemen of Fortune: Maelstrom

This download offers three sets of executables: DirectX9 - 64 bit, DirectX9 - 32 bit, DirectX 8 - 32 bit. By themselves, they provide nothing to play, but each of the versions can play the following, freely available mods and derivatives:

Buccaneers of the Caribe (based on Pirates of the Caribbean)

New Horizons (from Pirates Ahoy! community)

Caribe Stories (based on Caribbean Tales)

Caribe Stories Historical Immersion (based on Caribbean Tales)

Lost Ships City (based on City of Abandoned Ships)

Gentlemen of Fortune 1.2

Gentlemen of Fortune 2.0

Gentlemen of Fortune 2.5

Historical ERAS II

Anyone who has played the above games, knows the frustration with the originals; rife with game-breaking bugs and frequent crashes.

No more! We have overhauled the code, eliminating the vast memory leaks and crash-inducing bugs. In addition, we have improved the performance, and also upgraded from the original DirectX 8 (despite the claim on the COAS box, any process explorer showed the game was never actually running DirectX 9). Also now provide a 64 bit, for systems using that architecture (though even without, all the same fixes were applied to our DX8 and 32 bit versions, so older systems can still benefit).

Some other improvements are the swapping out of Windows memory allocation routines, in favor of a famous, more efficient method that increases allocation speed, improves efficiency and reduces fragmentation. FMOD, for sound, is updated to the most current and the engine implementation of it completely rewritten for new features. Fixed fullscreen task-switching bug that crashed game, to actually allow fullscreen and taskwindow switching inout of game without a problem. Deprecated DDRAW for video has been removed and updated with something newer. Save-file compression routine updated (still compatible for old saves, only in GOF, COAS and ERAS 2). Corrected multi-threading of sea calc routines. Changed to asynch systemtrace logging. Now with built in options to control video adapter selection, VSynch, Triple Buffering, and Antialiasing. Various features were added to support further mod capabilities, notably seen in ERAS II, and things like improved ship AI within the engine itself. These are just a few of the long list of improvementsfixes developed over the last couple years that have been most graciously beta-tested by some forum members over at Base Game: AGE OF PIRATES 2 City of Abandoned Ships; Licensing sold and owned by other third party(s). Original Source Code (freeware) which ran in DirectX 8 was given away freely eight years ago and completely rebuilt and overhauled by the Buccaneer's Reef Team. This is completely new source code which is now capable of running all the older games based on POTC (Storm 2.0) and Caribbean Tales (Storm 2.5), plus the newer based on City of Abandoned Ships (Storm 2.8), but now in DirectX 9 and 64 bit, if desired, to which all rights are reserved by the Buccaneer's Reef Team and official legal licensing pending.
