Captain Blood is a space adventure created by ERE Informatique initially for the Atari ST, then ported to Amiga, Amstrad CPC, Apple IIgs, Commodore 64, MS-DOS, and many other platforms. The year of the first release was 1988.

This original title, designed by Philippe Ulrich and Didier Bouchon, tells the story of a game designer that ends up being transported into his own sci-fi game. Due to an accident during the hyperspace jump, he cloned himself thirty times, spreading the clones to different planets of the galaxy. The problem is each clone has a part of the protagonist's life essence, and unless he can eliminate all of them, he will die soon. At the beginning of the game, only 5 clones are remaining, but you will have to explore the galaxy, visit different planets (there are 32768 of them), speak with the aliens, and collect clues to find them. Communication is the core element of Captain Blood because each alien species speaks its own language, and there is no Star Trek-like universal translator. You will have to use an interface called UPCOM that is based on icons. Combining the 150 different symbols, you will be able to communicate with the aliens, but it won't be easy (unless you download a tutorial, of course).
