Years before fearsome pirate Nelly Cootalot commanded The Fowl Fleet, she embarked on a mission to investigate the disappearance of an endangered species of wildfowl known as Spoonbeaks, having been commanded to do so by the spirit of a dead Buccaneer.

She will also uncover corruption in the Barony of Meeth and encounter the abominable Baron Widebeard for the first time.

According to developer Alasdair Beckett-King (who is also a stand-up comedian and has great hair), Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! was originally created as a birthday present for his girlfriend. But considering the success of The Fowl Fleet, the decision was made to revisit Spoonbeaks Ahoy! and remaster it for modern hardware. Voilà.

Along with rescuing Spoonbeaks, Nelly will acquire morally dubious items on behalf of minor aristocrats; intercept the private correspondence of a daredevil pilot; come to the aid of downtrodden supernatural beings; be confused by Nelly’s obscure colloquialisms; borrow facial hair from long-dead pirates and wantonly misuse the word “borrow.”

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! will be released on Windows early in 2017. Please consider upvoting the game on Greenlight. Meanwhile, Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet may be purchased here

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
