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.
