Growing up is hard to do, indeed. And games should mature, as well. As for this parody old school junk that regurgitates on common sense standards... Yes, I imagined a real pirate games, too. Perhaps some twists and turns, sustained by real 3D, maybe combined with some moral choices along the way?... Nah, not even 4 y old will play this scrap.
Just the other day I was thinking there could be a pirate game... Only difference is that I imagined an action/platforming game.
