Something is lurking in the depths of Davy Jones’... You’ve heard the stories - ships being ripped in half by a giant creature, maelstroms swallowing ships into the sea, & dead sea creatures washing ashore with strange markings. The tides are changing, & not for the better. The stories have struck fear in even the most fearless of Captains! They have decided to band together & prepare for what evil may be waking. Choose your ship, make sail to the ports, & gather everything you can to ready your ship…before it’s too late!
Davy Jones' Locker: The Kraken Wakes is a cooperative, pirate-themed game for 1-4 players split into 2 Acts. In Act 1, players will be using up actions to move around the map & upgrade their ship as much as possible before Act 2 begins. Exploring Ports, Visiting Markets, defeating Raiding Ships, Exploring Shipwrecks, & battling Naval Ships are just a few of the ways players can gain stat increases, gold, or equipment for their ships! Throughout Act 1, players will also encounter odd stories - pods of beached whales with strange markings, pools of red in the middle of the sea, & stories of ships being dragged down to Davy Jones' from nowhere... As the stories grow more present, so does the reason behind them: The Kraken!
Once The Kraken wakes, Act 2 begins! Players will be sucked into a huge whirlpool & have to fight through the Kraken, its 8 tentacles, & ever-changing whirlpool currents. Ships will sink, but that doesn't mean they are out of the fight! Other players can rescue the stranded crew from the sea, allowing them to man parts of their own ship & keep pushing through the battle to send the Kraken back down to Davy Jones' Locker!
