5,000 swabs and climbing! - MMORPG.com

Three Rings Design has announced that Yohoho! Puzzle Pirates has topped 5,000 active subscribers.  Also, they have signed deals with entities in Germany and China, bringing the game to a multinational audience.

"Harr! We be shivering our timbers to bring Yohoho! to the gaming fanatics of Germany and the exploding audiences of the China Seas!" said Daniel James, Three Rings' CEO, known 'pon the high seas as Captain Cleaver. "Puzzle Pirates has shown that a downloadable persistent world can appeal to the casual gaming audience, and we are confident that great swathes of German and Chinese Pirates will soon be sailing the Oceans in search of rum and booty!"

"With respect to the Chinese market, most folks there play in web cafes, and we know Puzzle Pirates is a lot o' fun to play in a crew with yer mates, not least as it be appealing to the ladies as much as the gents," continued Daniel. "In Germany, the popularity of games and board games in particular bode well for Puzzle Pirates, which has been greatly inspired by the German board gaming aesthetic."

The big games tend to grab a lot of the spotlight, but 5,000 paying subscribers is respectable for any game, especially a smaller title like Puzzle Pirates.  See what all the fuss is about at the Puzzle Pirates website.  Arrrrr!
