THE MIDLANDS, UK — Avast me hearties!!! Monday 19th September is International Talk Like a Pirate Day and the Astraware Team has decided to embrace the theme wholeheartedly. ARRR!

We’ve dressed the office with palm trees and parrots and we’re bracing our mainsails and shivvering our timbers for a fine rum ole time! To share the festivities with you, we’re making two top pirate-themed titles available with a special discount for one day only.

Blast the pirates with a full broadside from your cannons or lure them on to the reefs in Seven Seas for Palm OS and Windows Mobile for Pocket PC and Smartphone. In Tradewinds you can build your empire through swashbuckling sea combat and trade! Achieve the ultimate rank of Tai Pan or become the renowned Pirate King, Gossamer. Tradewinds is available for Palm OS and Windows Mobile for Pocket PC. This one-day discount offers both titles with 10 pieces of silver off the regular price, making Seven Seas $4.95 and Tradewinds $9.95.

Astraware Here’s a word from our very own tyrannical pirate captain, Redbeard Tomlinson: “Arrr, now’s yer chance to get a bit piratey – and if we don’t get at least an Arrr out of ye, it’ll be twelve strokes of the cat and no internet access for the rest of the day! A-harrr.”
