The latest build of turn-based exploration RPG Pioneers has just been released (http://eigen.pri.ee/pioneers), which is as good an excuse as any to talk about this clever, atmospheric blend of genres. Using only four colours, ten of them green, developer Eigen Lenkā??s mash-up evokes Colonisation, any number of pirate sims, and even smaller-scale fare such as the historical roguelike The Oregon Trail. As a settler in a new world, you have to assemble a group of intrepid explorers, buy and outfit a ship, and then set sail, poking around a mid-millennium continent and doing your best to survive the harsh environment.

Itā??s not all in place yet. The world map hasnā??t been implemented, and (beyond the first few minutes) the tutorial messages arenā??t a lot of help. But thereā??s enough content here to chew on for a good while, and plenty to look forward to when the full game decides to set sail. You can nab the latest build of Pioneers here (http://eigen.pri.ee/pioneers/#download), and witness a nautical gameplay trailer below.
