"Sea Dogs" (original: "Корсары: проклятие дальних морей") is a Russian 2000 computer role-playing game (CRPG) for Windows developed by Akella and published by Bethesda Softworks. In it, the player is the captain of a ship and can serve as a privateer to a European power, or as a pirate. The game uses a 3D self-made game engine and encompasses gameplay similar to the more popular "Sid Meier's Pirates!" game, while also being a true inter-character dialog-centered RPG. The sequel, "Sea Dogs II", was remade into "Pirates of the Caribbean", but largely unrelated to the plot elements of the movie. Soon after release Akella renamed "Pirates Of The Caribbean" back to "Sea Dogs II", but only in Russia and the CIS. Akella later created "", the sequel to "Sea Dogs". The title was changed because Akella wanted to create a brand name that they could control, rather than their publisher. A new fan-based title from Akella's pirate series called "Sea Dogs: Return Of The Legend" is available only in Russia and the CIS.

Universe

The entire game takes place in a fictional archipelago, yet it is mentioned a number of times that it is in the Caribbean. French, English and Spanish colonies are present there, as well as fortified pirate hideouts.

Plot Summary

Your character, Nicholas, was raised by his mother since he was a child. The only memories left of his father are his departure on a ship, as well as a golden medallion he gave him. Nicholas grows, and as his father did before, goes to sea to seek adventures. Soon, he is captured by the Spanish, but manages to escape with a small ship and a crew. He arrives at the central British colony, where he has to start a new life.

Since the game is non-linear, the player may work for any of the three nations, as well as start a pirate's career. Searching for his father is always possible, but in order to succeed, the player will need to change his ship's flags a number of times. This quest will reveal the secrets of the main character's father's life story, his death, as well as his legacy.
