Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! is a free adventure game by Alasdair Beckett. It was released in March 2007, and as of today it’s officially available in German as well.“Nelly Cootalot is a young pirate captain who meets her destiny when she comes face-to-face with the visage of the long-dead buccaneer William Bloodbeard. Bloodbeard, once the scourge of the South Seas had a sideline in protecting cute and endangered birds. He tells Nelly that the Spoonbeaks of the Barony of Meeth have vanished. Nelly must investigate and uncover nefarious goings-on in the small island community.”
The game offers many hours of gameplay, a lot of pirate humor, and a funny story about pirates, little heroes, and ample hips. You can download it from the official website:
P.S.: The second game, Nelly Cootalot II: The Fowl Fleet, which was successully funded through Kickstarter, is expected for a release in summer 2014. It’s likely that I’ll do a German translation of this game as well. It’s a commercial game, and you can already pre-order it on the official website.
