The Caribbean Dream.

<span class="bold">Windward</span>, a sandbox adventure on the high seas, is available now, DRM-free on GOG.com. Get it now for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux, DRM-free on GOG.com with a 35% launch discount.

Love it or hate it, <span class="bold">Windward</span> is making waves. Something of a sandbox Pirates! release with Diablo/Torchlight influences, <span class="bold">Windward</span>is about making your own adventure on the high seas of an ever-Caribbean world. In a manner that defines sandbox gameplay, this is a title that will not drag you along for an epic adventure - instead, it'll offer you a land (and sea) of opportunity littered with procedurally generated landscapes, challenge and activities. Sail the seas alone, or form a band with your friends thanks to seamless multiplayer drop-in/drop-out - then trade, pillage or plunder in this: your 100% own pirate adventure. <span class="bold">Windward</span> is a beautiful, free, and tranquil experience that may just float your boat.

Live the DIY Carribean dream in <span class="bold">Windward</span>! The 35% launch discount will last for 24 hours, until Wednesday, July 1 at 1:59 PM GMT. Afterwards, the game will be available 15% off until Tuesday, July 7, at 1:59 PM GMT.
"Windward is a beautiful, free, and tranquil experience that may just float your boat."

But you're charging $10 bucks for it! *yuck yuck*

Well, at least now we know where the hell Tuesday's game is.

Looks a bit like Corsairs. That reminds me I really should play that again.
I don't trust GemeSpot, but they gave it a 3. :P

An average Metacritic score of 6 though, that's nice.
Jeez, i glanced over the thread title and read it as "Release: Windfart".... :D
I remember playing the Alpha of this a couple years ago. The physics were pretty good! Has anyone tried out the latest version yet?
Wishlisted, but a popular tag on Steam is "MMORPG". A bit worrisome...
Read a few reviews, seems more like an Early Access (unfinished) experience.
A lot of mixed reviews. Anyone who's played it want to throw in their 2 cents as to what kind of game the devs were actually trying to make---multiplayer with token single-player?

Yeah, reading the reviews suggests that it's primarily a multiplayer experience. You can play single player buts it's dull, it seems.

thats pretty much what I've heard, so I'll be interested to hear myself.
Watching the game trailer it reminds me of Pirates of Black Cove Gold which was a nice little game IMHO.
I have enjoyed playing it myself, albeit I've only played a few hours. I have not played any MP though, not really my thing. I believe there are four factions in the game that focus on certain aspects, I have only played one of the factions that focused on exploration.
So I take it this not a trading sim or real time strategy game, but something else, more akin to adventure(?), action, RPG?
