Award-winning producer Eloise Singer, the project’s creative director, and Singer Studios’ CEO and Founder, said the following:

“As a team, we were inspired by Cheng Shih’s remarkable journey: she overcame adversity, defied gender norms, and ultimately rose to become one of the most formidable pirates in history. Bringing Cheng Shih’s story to life has been hugely rewarding, and ‘The Pirate Queen: A Forgotten Legend’ is just the beginning. The game focuses on the night Cheng Shih came to power, and we’re excited to be expanding the narrative, telling her incredible story across a film, TV series, and graphic novel.”Eloise Singer

“As each level unfolds, players journey deeper into Cheng Shih’s narrative, uncovering the escalating challenges she overcame and some of her extraordinary triumphs. We hope that players will be as captivated by Cheng Shih’s story as we were while crafting this immersive experience.”Siobhan McDonnell

The title will be available on Meta Quest and Steam for $16.99.
