Cheeky Sprite Studios is based in Chesterfield, U.K., and is self-described as a “software development company specializing in creating high quality products, by using an enthusiastic, innovative, and experienced team.” They develop mobile, web, and desktop applications for clients. Building video games is just one aspect of their business.

In 2013, Cheeky Sprite decided to dedicate their focus to The Secret Cove – a point-and-click adventure. Their aim is to create an immersive game that is both fun and challenging. The game will be presented in 3D with scenery based on the beauty of the Cornish landscape (the most southwesterly area in the U.K.). As with most projects, the development cycle has taken longer than originally anticipated and The Secret Cove remains a work in progress.

The story will follow an out-of-work deckhand who is a denizen of the local pub. He overhears a fisherman boasting of finding a smuggler’s journal that leads to treasure and his quest begins. Played from a 1st-person perspective, the game promises a non-linear world with puzzles to solve, artifacts to locate, and tools to create. It also promises environments that are on land, underground, and underwater.

Cindy’s love affair with gaming began when she opened a mailbox in front of a white house and took the first step in a long series of adventures. ‘Back in the day,’ Cindy was a regular contributor to JA and an active member of the online gaming community. She has attended several E3s and has had the pleasure of spending time in person with both Ray and Randy. Her all- time favorite adventures include the Tex Murphy series, the Gabriel Knight series, and The Longest Journey. She also enjoys RPGs and her list of ‘best ever’ includes Fallout, Asheron’s Call, and Planescape Torment. Â Frustrated with the cost of rising PC system requirements, Cindy decided to switch to console and tablet gaming. Although you can teach some old dogs new tricks, she discovered that console controller dexterity is a skill set that she is lacking. Her results with tablet gaming were not much better. With the exception of a few gems such as The Room and Forever Lost, there is a limit to how much one can play Candy Crush and Hidden Object Adventures. Having proved that pure escapism is worth the investment, she has a new gaming laptop and is back to her search for the perfect adventure. Â After spending most of her life in Los Angeles and Atlanta, Cindy escaped the stress of urban life and moved to rural Arkansas. To show that she has become a true Arkansan, she has taken up deer hunting, wears pink camo, and put a chicken coop in her backyard. On a stressful day, she can be heard yelling ‘Woo Pig Sooie’ when all else fails.
