Loot and extort your way to infamy in the seedy world of the 17th century Caribbean. Strike terror in the hearts of your victims: board ships, ransom hostages and sack towns. The only rules are the ones you make. Cutthroats: Terror on the High Seas makes you the captain of a ship bristling with cannons. Seek a Letter of Marquee and fight for King and country as a privateer or become a ruthless pirate. Either way, remember to ply your crew with rum and treasure or face a mutiny. Will you survive to retire a Pirate King? Or will you dance the hempen jig on Gallows Rock?
