This is a hard one.
I'm looking for a game that came out for PC about 12 years ago. I think its name was "Pirates", but google won't help much.
But yeah, the game is about pirates. From the begining you choose your gender, and you are the capitain of your ship. It's all in 3D, but you always turn left or right in 90º and you click on people to talk with. You start off on your ship in the Gulf ocean (You can even explore your ship, like going inside the ship and kill rats to prevent your crew from getting sick), and you can visit islands and ports to resupply, buy food, wine, cannons, ammo, gunpowder, crew, and several stuff and I don't remember anymore. Being in a port (i.e. cayman island) you could also explore different locations, such as houses and talk to the people in there. Usually, after pretty much every conversation a scroll appeared with a lot of information about what you just talked about (i.e. if the guy talked about how much he loves coffee a scroll with appear talking about the history of coffee).
You can also duel with pissed off people in the islands, once the duel starts it looks like prince of persia (2D style), with swords and you hit him about 3 times to kill him. There's always a different story of why he/she wants to kill you.
Being in the ocean is always exciting too. You have the option to pop-up a map and automatically reach a location, but you can also navigate your ship and wait until you reach wherever you want to go. Your crew may get sick and die from malaria (also showing a scroll about malaria). Being in the ship you can spot enemy ships if you look carefully or they can engage you by surprise. You can destroy the other ship by shooting at it (1 for one bullet, spacebar for all your cannons shooting at once) or by getting too close to it and you and your pirates engaging the enemies on their ship. You fight the capitain, and if you win, you get all their supplies.
If you do a poor job being a capitain (Not buying enough food, wine, or being on the ocean for too long) your own crew may remove you from your position or they may even kill you. If you do a nice job, even after a battle and most of them being wounded they'll tell you they'll remain loyal to the end.
If you get killed, you appear in a cemetery in front of the Reaper and he'll tell you something like: "Don't worry, you'll get used to worms eventually" and a worm come out of his eye.
That's as much details as I can think of right now. Can anyone help me find this game?
