A tiny sailing and trading game I made for a one-day jam.

The light blue triangles indicate wind direction. You start in a sailing ship, so you can't move directly against the wind, but you can tack. If you can only see little dots where you are, there's no wind and you have to wait for it to pick up.

Accumulate $2000 to retire in peace.

If you are carrying illegal goods and get hit by a lighthouse beam, the goods are confiscated.

Future versions might include more detailed trade and commercial relationship mechanics. Music by Tallbeard Studios.

Impressive little game for a one-day jam!

I loved the progression, although it became quite easy towards the end when I found a particularly lucrative route (not illegal goods).

Since you're mentioning possible future versions, here's some wishes :)
- Some stats of the boats so you know what you're buying (cargo, speed, propulsion system etc). I happened to downgrade to a smuggler boat not knowing that it would be much less cargo than the one I had...
- A minimap of the world would be awesome (perhaps even with trading details of each island once you've visited it)

Agreed with the boat confusion.

Perhaps the minimap should be slowly filled when discoveries are made?

love this game. had to learn tack - very cool. it's paced very well. we'd love a save, though. it's a little too tranquil for casual rounds. don't ever add a pause, lol
