WARNING: Early Alpha

There be bugs in these waters.

Explode your friends through brain power!

Well...brain power used to answer questions, that's channeled into actions, that you can then spend with your ships and cannons, and...Look. It still counts. 

Sail around, aim around, shoot around, and may the smartest (or the luckiest) person win.

Here's why the game exists in the first place.



  • Multiplayer goodness - get together with your best friend(s) and sink your lesser acquaintances!
  • Ship sailing and cannon fighting on the high sea(s)! 
  • Physics based movement! Your smart friends can't aim to save their lives? Smash your way through your opponents (beware of them smashing through you as well)!
  • Answer questions based on real-world topics / subjects! Ravaging the seven seas is all good, but let's be smart about it...
  • Dedicated server - you can always hop-in with your friends, no matter the time of day. 

(Very) Early Access

Encyclopedia Explosica is in a prototype phase! Placeholders are abundant, crashes can and will probably happen and there's only this much content, so far.

Outdated version? I even disinstalled and reinstalled the game, the hopes were high for the game...

It's not the game, it's the developer! Apologies are in order! ๐Ÿ˜…
It's up and running properly now (and you can see my reply to @ElJacomo about what happened).

now we can enter the server but we can't spawn ships

Well, the ships spawning behaves differently whether you're in a party, and whether you're the party's leader:
- If you're in a party, only your party's leader can spawn ships for the party. And only ships meant for parties.
-If you're not in a party, you can only spawn 'The Lone Wolf' just for yourself (and that's as intended). 

I just tested it, and it was still working the same way, is it perhaps something else that you refer to? 

it says to download the latest client version but also if i reinstall the app it doesn't work

Yup, I goofed on that quite a bit. My bad! But it's good to go now!
TLDR: Don't release when late and tired.

Built the new version, released the server, tested everything, all good to go...And I apparently forgot to upload it for you guys. Apologies. ๐Ÿ˜…

You have completely broke the game, i don't know how you can do that but the new version is completely broke

Heyo. There's so many ways to break a game, and you always manage to try it at the best possible time...Cheers for doing it, though. ๐Ÿ˜ 

There have been several back-end changes since the last client release and the latest finally broke the compatibility between the two (I tried it after you commented, and saw what you meant).

The next update is a major one - reworking the question system, and it's mostly ready. So rather than spend time on hot-fixing the current issue, I've turned the server off until the next release (see note on top of the page) in a few days. 

It's probably one of the most fun new games I've played in the last 2-3 years. I was having a blast with my friends. 5/5 would recommend!

It's so nice to hear, you enjoyed it as a group (as it's ideally meant to be played)! 

This game is like a breath of fresh air with its quite immersive gameplay and its playing with your nostalgia with the pirates theme. I really recommend trying this game if you wish to experience the Pirate's dream.

The pirate's dream of learning, eh? ^^

The game is very immersive and fun to play with friends! The concept is fresh, engaging and quite unique. I highly recommend trying it out :)

Amazing game! The experience cruising through the waves with your buddies, riding on the ship, helping each other with the questions while chasing the enemies is unique, fun and interactive! The genre of the game is quite interesting, there's something special about testing your gray matter, while shooting at the other pirates with your cannon :D. I truly enjoyed my time playing this amazing game!

Great to hear! Helping each other is fully encouraged (and so is seeking outside help)! 

An extremely fun experience with great mechanics that makes teamwork cool again! I recommend for an superduper entertaining session with your friends, where you will scream and laugh at each other's urgency and silliness!

Arr, matey- time to get stuck on the 100 year war question now! 


WOW! You have no idea how encouraging it is to hear that someone liked it that much! Thanks!
