For months, merchants from the Empire have reported an unusual number of ships missing or destroyed in previously quiet waters. Those lucky to survive the attacks report “Giant Snakes” emerging from the sea. The Brotherhood of Applied Cryptozoology has confirmed these were kraken attacks!
This legendary sea monster was once only a whispered rumor - the mysterious source for Kraken’s Blood. Now, talk is swirling around pirate inns, claiming there are vast treasures to be found in the kraken’s lair. A new mysterious material, Kraken’s Ink, has been discovered. A local alchemist was seen purchasing large amounts of the material to transform it into Kraken’s Blood!
Be warned! Large ships cannot approach the kraken, as the beast will quickly send them to Davy Jones’ Locker. Ships traveling to a Kraken’s Lair should stock one lifeboat for each pirate aboard. Ye can find this commodity at yer local shipyard. This will allow the crew to approach the kraken in small, maneuverable rowboats. Avoid the tentacles and collect treasure!
Furnisher owners are enthusiastic about the new sea monster hunt and advertisements for specialty rowboats are starting to appear:
Krazy Karen’s Kraken Kraze Klearance!
Kustomize yer rowboat on yer next Kraken Konfrontation!

After July 14th 2014, the iPad version of Puzzle Pirates will no longer be supported or updated. It will be removed from the Apple App Store shortly after this date.
We had hoped that the iPad would help introduce the Puzzle Pirates to a whole new audience of players, and that ultimately, we would be using the same new user interface and code for both the PC and the iPad. After adding content in parallel to both the classic PC client and the iPad version for almost a year now, it has become clear that it won’t be possible to maintain and develop Puzzle Pirates for the iPad and still continue to add new features to the core game. This was an ambitious project, and we’ve learned a great deal from it, but based on the game’s reception on the iPad, it no longer makes sense to devote additional resources to it.
We realize that some players have really enjoyed the iPad version. Any player who has acquired currency or items from the iPad version of the game can still continue to play with their pirates and treasure intact on the classic PC client.
