Pirates! Gold Plus, a pack that includes Pirates! Gold and Sid Meier’s Pirates, the finest pirate simulation and its acclaimed Windows remake, is available in one big booty chest on GOG.com for only $5.99.
Sid Meier's Pirates! is one of the most memorable treasures in the history of PC games and nautical sims. The game might be 25 years old, but the unbeatable concept behind it hasn’t aged one bit. After all, swashbuckling and roaming the seas in search for adventure never gets old. The game offers a complex world full of gold to grab, ships to sail, ports to pillage, and rivals to ravage with a well placed cannon volley. Or if piracy and treasure hunting are not your thing, you can always turn to trading goods or even get married and settle down. The free roam gameplay is as unpredictable and varied as a sea rover’s life can get.
Both Sid Meier's Pirates! and its revamped Windows version Pirates! Gold take us to the Golden Age of Buccaneering. They let you experience the life of a pirate, privateer, or a pirate hunter in the Spanish Main. The tremendous depth of simulation in these games creates a nearly perfect image of the 16th, 17th, and 18th century Caribbean -- with all of its political, economic, and nautical realities -- and sea-salty flavor. With this game Sid Meier (a promising game designer at the time) earned the status of a legend in the industry. And there was a good reason for that!
