A downloadable game for Windows and Linux

Buy Now$10.00 USD or more

Treasure Fleet is a turn based strategy game set in the Age of Discovery, along the lines of Sid Meier's Colonization, Imperialism II or Conquest of the New World. You start with a small ship with colonists on board, and set off to discover new lands, establish lucrative colonies, trade with the natives and fight the enemies of your country.

The map is procedurally generated, each new game providing a unique experience. Terrain types, ranging from arctic to tropical, allows the production of different resources, with some locations featuring an abundance of them, making them prime locations for establishing colonies.

As you establish settlements, colonists or hired craftsmen can be brought in to work the land and generate trade goods that can be sold for profit in your home country. Build factories to increase the trade with the natives, or forts to secure your colonies. Mines and farms will improve the productivity of surrounding lands. Build roads to connect your inland colonies to ports and transport resources.

Explore terra incognita and visit native villages, explore ruins hidden in the wilderness and search for lost treasures, and ultimately discover the fabled El Dorado. Accomplish the missions given by your ruler for the interests of your home country.

As your country will get involved in wars with other European powers, or you come across hostile natives, you must prepare for the inevitable conflict. Defend your colonies and build up an army of professional soldiers. Expand your navy as new ship types become available for purchase, and watch out for the pirates that prey on the ships carrying the riches of the New World.

I just recently purchase the game here. Cause I don't want to have steam running all the time. But i noticed the folder contains steam files.

So when I ran this the first time nothing happened. force closed...

Second time got as far as the first Logo.. 

doing all this with and without steam running..

Win 10 64bit 

It should not matter if you use Steam or not. I suspect something else is interfering with the game, maybe an antivirus. Please check if after crash is there anything in the file debug.txt from the game folder.

There is no crash. It takes three minutes for the menu to even come up. Then i can't select any buttons.

The only program that may conflict is I have LibreOffice associated to csv files and windows media player to sounds.

I left the menu running for several minutes and couldn't do anything.

Try to force run it in windowed mode. To do this, edit user.ini and add the following lines:

resolution = 0
fullscreen = 0

Save and restart.

Other thing to try, open settings.ini and add the following lines at the end:


And finally, try compatibility mode (windows 7) if you haven't already.

Tried all of the following, still not any improvement.

Logo is like a slideshow and can't select anything at the menu.

user.ini gets deleted every time i start the exe.

is there any command-line parameters?

I'll update the SDL library the game uses and upload a new version soon.

I have uploaded a new version.

I noticed this game is now on steam. Is it possible to also get a steam key with a purchase here? My understanding is the dev cut is better when we buy here instead of on steam directly.


I went ahead and made the purchase. Don't see a steam key on the download page, do I need to do anything special for that?

Since there is no private messages system here, can you reach me out at Steam Treasure Fleet game's forum and send me a PM there?

Hello @Dragos Pusca

I just purchased and installed your game. When I try to start it, it gives me an error message about "steam_api.dll" not found.

Thank you for your help!

Sorry for that, I have checked and fixed the problem. I have updated the installer. Please try a reinstall.

Works like a charm now! Thanks!

No Mac OSX version?

Unfortunately, no at this time.

This game looks awesome! I don't suppose you can add a 32-bit build?

Hi and thanks! If you are referring to Windows version, this is a 32-bit build.

Oops, forgot to mention, I mean the Linux version. But okay then, I'll see if the Windows one runs in Wine. Thanks!

Edit: unfortunately it doesn't. Appears to require a newer Windows than Wine supports. Oh well.

Ah, ok. I'll look into building a 32-bit Linux version. Thanks for your feedback.

I have uploaded the 32bit build for linux. I hope you won't have problems with libraries. If you receive a "D-BUS" error, launch the game as such:

DBUS_FATAL_WARNINGS=0 TreasureFleet/launch

Unfortunately it's looking for the SDL2 libraries as packaged for... Ubuntu I think? And can't find them because on Mageia they're named differently. Oh well, thank you very much for trying. This should help many people.
