Arrr! Puzzle Pirates Hits the Big Time

Great news today for Three Rings, the indie game development company behind the brilliant online game Puzzle Pirates — mega publisher Ubisoft has picked up the game for publication. That means it’ll be gracing the shelves of your local Best Buy, Target, etc. soon.

It couldn’t happen to a better game — Puzzle Pirates is a fiendishly well-designed mix of online role playing and puzzle solving. Think of a cross between Tetris and Everquest, with a dash of the offbeat quirkiness of the recent Pirates of the Caribbean movie, and you’ll get a sense for its appeal. It runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and there’s a free trial period, so check it out if you’re looking for a fun, diverting online game! And congrats to the team at Three Rings on their good fortune.
