Pixel Piracy, a pixelated open-world pirate game, might be the cutest little thing I've ever seen in my life. It looks a bit like Terraria, which is expected because I think that some of the people who worked on that game helped a bit with this one.
Honestly, I've never played Terraria but I heard it was a lot like a 2D version of Minecraft -- plus a lot more stuff that I never got to experience -- and I've always been interested it. But since this new pretty pixel pirate (HOORAY ALLITERATION) game is coming out pretty soon, I'll probably pick this one up instead.
The announcement trailer doesn't really tell too much about the game. And you know what, I'm okay with that because there's a cute little pirate song about all the things that start with the letter P that are awesome. One of which is "Platonic Relationships".
And I got to say little pixel pirates, platonic relationships are my favorite kind of relationship. They don't get messy, they last longer than romantic relationships (in my experience anyway). And you know, friendships and platonic relationships are much more rewarding than romantic ones.
There are expectations in romantic relationships -- sex, physical touch, etc. -- that people get bummed out about when they don't get reached. But there's nothing like that in friendships. You're this person's friend without expecting anything in return and I think that's beautiful.
Pixel Piracy will be available for PS4 on February 16th, 2016
