EXCLUSIVE Kartuga interview with Philipp Arlt from Ticking Bomb Games

Kartuga is a browser-based Action MMOG with a gritty pirate backdrop and on a recent trip to the UK, we sat down with Phillip Arlt from Ticking Bomb Games who told us all about it.


The title, out to set a new standard of quality in browser games, is based on Unity 3D. Players assume the captain role of a mighty sailing ship. These adventurers fight with or against other players for honor, glory, and loot in a stylized fantasy setting featuring eclectic nautical elements from around the world. Sailing across seas scattered with Mediterranean and oriental influences, players can unite in mighty guilds, acting out the punk-like, rebellious nature of true pirates!

In Kartuga, adventurers set out to become the greatest pirate of all time by constantly improving their ship, its crew and equipment. In order to do that, one must face exciting and demanding tasks and challenges.

Character Progression: Players are the captain of their ship – and must complete missions and gather loot to level up and improve gear and crew. Only the strongest will survive the seas of Kartuga.

A Vibrant World: Aspiring Captains explore the oceans of Kartuga to gather missions, discover exciting areas and find brethren of the seas. They experience three distinct regions with their own factions, threats, and treasures.

Ship Classes: Players choose between the graceful Destroyer, mighty Protector, or versatile Engineer.

Grow and Thrive: Earning experience unlocks dozens of skills, ships, and hundreds of items. Pirates pick and play the way that suits them!

Sea Battles: Pirates set the ocean aflame as they test the wit, tactics and agility of their foes.

With about 80 million registered players, Katruga’s publisher, InnoGames is one of the world’s leading developers and providers of online games. The Hamburg based company has scored major successes with games such as Tribal Wars, The West and Grepolis.

Before the interview I got have a play with Kartuga and I rather enjoyed it. I kept choosing the Destroyer class, which wasn’t always the smartest move, and I look forward to playing more soon.
