The Legend Of Blackbeard
Experience the age of piracy like never before in this interactive all-ages adventure. The year is 1724. The Golden Age of Piracy is coming to an end, and you have been chosen to serve as judge and jury in the most important court of all—the Court of Public Opinion. A book has just been published across the Atlantic that will forever decide the way the story of the pirate known as Blackbeard will be told.
Join Angus “Quill” MacBlaquart, Chronicler of Sea Captains and Kings, on a journey of discovery. Visit local points of piratical interest in “Fish Town” (the former name of Beaufort), help solve a mystery or two, and, through the mysterious magic of Quill’s personal journal, meet Blackbeard’s closest enemies and allies, including Charles Vane, Benjamin Hornigold, Jack Rackham, and Anne Bonny. In the end, it’ll be up to you which story you want to tell—the Truth—or the Legend—of Blackbeard.
