I intend to make a SailPunk game. No working title yet.
However, because I have done one sailing game before (Pyrates) I needed to motivate myself a bit with some concept art.
The setting is South China Sea, the final days of sailing warships. Portugese, Dutch East Asia company, Chinese pirates and the US Navy all grapple for the lucrative spice and tea (and opium) trade routes.
