It’s one of those mysteries that make one wonder where developers’ heads are these days: why oh why is there such a dearth of pirate-themed video games? How is it that they do not see the massive potential in a swashbuckling adventure over the vast seas with islands to explore and treasure to plunder? Developed by the man behind the original Tomb Raider, Toby Gard, Galleon made an attempt to fill that gap on the original Xbox nearly a decade ago. The game was a little rough but, given the chance, a modern Galleon game could really stand out in a market crowded with military shooters.
