In Cutthroats, you are a skilled diver living on Hardscrabble Island, a small seaport past its prime. You will try to salvage a treasure from one of four shipwrecks; if you are successful, you will be fabulously and enormously respected among old salts. Some characters in the story will help you; others will try to stop you any way they can. If you can think logically and keep your throat intact, the treasure can be yours.

There is more than one shipwreck in Cutthroats, but in each story you will be trying to recover only one particular treasure. When you restart the story, you may find yourself diving for a different treasure.
