A text-based game about pirates.
'Ilha Formosa' was the name given to the island of Taiwan by the Portuguese meaning 'Beautiful Island'. This is a text game based loosely on the Tradewinds series by Sandlot Games. I'm using this project to teach myself object-oriented programming in Python, so don't expect much from it.
