Fans of Point & Click Adventure games will know that we reviewed the pirate themed Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet a while back, awarding it a well-deserved 8.3/10. It is a charming and humorous take on the genre, starring a feisty pirate heroine. What many players might not know is that The Fowl Fleet actually had a freeware prequel, titled Spoonbeaks Ahoy! While Spoonbeaks Ahoy! can still be enjoyed in its original low resolution format, the success of The Fowl Fleet has meant that fans can soon enjoy a remastered high definition version of the game.

Spoonbeaks Ahoy! was released all the way back in 2007, which makes its 640×480 resolution look a little dated on modern widescreen monitors. The remastered version of the game will bump the resolution up to 1920X1080, while retaining the humor that made it such a hit with fans. For those not familiar with Spoonbeaks Ahoy! It stars the swashbuckling Nelly Cootalot who is on a quest to find out why a fleet of birds, known as spoonbeaks, mysteriously disappeared. Standing between her and the answers she seek is the nefarious Baron Widebeard and a whole host of other wacky characters.

Although no knowledge of Spoonbeaks Ahoy! is required to enjoy The Fowl Fleet it is definitely a title deserving of a high definition update. Head on over to the Steam Greenlight page to cast a vote for the game and don’t forget to check out The Fowl Fleet, which is currently on sale too.

Skyhill (Mandragora)

We’ve been keeping a close eye on Skyhill, the roguelike survival horror title from Mandragora, so naturally we couldn’t refuse the opportunity to try out a playable version of this title. The game opens with the protagonist, Perry Jason, booking into the VIP suite of the Skyhill hotel while on a business trip. From the 100th floor of the hotel Perry witnesses the biological attack on the city that turns everyone else into slavering monsters. Driven from his room by hunger, Perry only has one way to go, down.

Lewd Warfare (Ironstrom And Co)

With plenty of English visual novels appearing on Steam and in bundles these days players are spoiled for choice. However, indie games with adult content still face an uphill battle in terms of funding and exposure. We’ve seen developers like Lupiesoft expanding their roster with adult titles, such as the upcoming Menagerie, but outside of the visual novel genre the pickings for quality adult titles are still slim. Nevertheless, a small team of programmers, designers and artists are seeking to change this with their upcoming 18+ title, Lewd Warfare.

The Old City: Leviathan

The Old City: Leviathan

As the protagonist of The Old City: Leviathan kept addressing his claustrophobic surroundings as if it was a living entity I was convinced that he was mad. Not that I could blame him really. Described as a “sewer dwelling isolationist” who is making his way through the bleak environments of a decaying city, it is hard not to feel sorry for the nameless protagonist. You might view the world through his eyes and direct his movement, but you are certainly not playing “as” him. I was intrigued by his musings, but certain that he was mad, until the city answered.
