Elly and the Ruby Atlas is a free pirate game RPG where the player becomes Elly Meridian, an orphaned girl living between pirates, that decides to seek out revenge for the family and retrieve what a rival pirate had stolen years prior, a gem called the Ruby Atlas. The story is a classic trope of the fantasy genre but special events along the narration make it engaging and fun to play through.
To progress in the game, the players need to quest, trade, and fight in different ports across the map. Once the player has crafted Elly her gear and customized her ship, they can face the main antagonist and, if successful, continue the adventure to a player-owned island – New Meridian.

“Elly and the Ruby Atlas” is the second game the development team worked on together. The first game, “Hooman Invaders” received a lot of attention since it was the first game developed in the city of Suceava, Romania. "Hooman Invaders" served as a foundation and training method for what later became a complex PRG such as “Elly”.
The game developers consider their efforts a tribute to the times when games were single-player focused and did not feature micro-transactions systems. They drew inspiration from classics like the Port Royale series and lots of other side-scrolling titles.
“Even though it can get difficult at times, Elly and the Ruby Atlas is designed to be an exploring fantasy, a free offline RPG and sword fighting platformer where you are the captain of a sailing ship from an age long gone,” says the development team.
