Microids and Savage Level have just unveiled a behind-the-scenes look at their upcoming game, Flint: Treasure of Oblivion. This first "Making Of" documentary delves into the inspirations and motivations behind the game's creation, providing a tantalizing glimpse into the development of this tactical RPG set in the golden age of piracy.

Flint: Treasure of Oblivion transports players to the 18th century, far removed from the clichés and popular beliefs surrounding piracy. Instead, the game focuses on the values of brotherhood, mutual support, and the quest for freedom, aiming to capture the true essence of pirates. The developers have gone to great lengths to ensure every detail reflects an authentic world of piracy, from in-depth historical documentation to meticulous artistic and narrative choices.

The game promises an original narrative, using traditional comic strips as a narrative medium. Players will embark on an adventure alongside Captain Flint, his second-in-command Billy Bones, and a crew of old salts in search of legendary treasure. Flint: Treasure of Oblivion not only offers adventure but also strategic depth with its turn-based combat mechanics. The game draws on mechanics from role-playing and board games, notably through dice rolls, allowing players to adapt their strategy to their style of gameplay.

Flint: Treasure of Oblivion is available on Steam.
