The Here Be Dragons release date has been announced and it's just a few days away!

What's Here Be Dragons all about? Well, check out the trailer for this silly title from Red Zero Games:

Simply put, Here Be Dragons is a game that takes those wild maps with dragons on them and treats it as fact. Players try to move a fleet of ships around the world, but they have to contend with Krakens, Giant Squids, and all sorts of other wild ocean monsters.

Players will take on these creatures using turn-based strategy. A special dice system determines the outcome of these battles, so it's not all about strategy — a little luck is involved, too, but isn't that true for anyone who sailed the high seas?

It's not all about battle, though. You'll also have to contend with all the stupidity that the bureaucracies of the late 1400s would unleash on the world. Royal advisors and other authorities will make a challenging expedition all the more difficult, so do your best to deal with them while keeping your sanity.

If this neat game about sailing across the ocean seems like your kind of jam, you won't have to wait too much longer to play it: the Here Be Dragons release date is January 30, 2020.

Again, while the game is officially launching on January 30, it's still available for purchase in Steam Early Access. You can pick it up on Steam at the price of $14.99 or your regional equivalent, or you can simply add it to your wishlist. You can find out more about Here Be Dragons as its official website
