Bird-Brained: Nelly Cootalot's On Greenlight

The extremely lovely point and click adventure Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy appeared when RPS was but a fledgling chick, not sure how to arrange text and images. The game, however, knew exactly how to arrange such things, the sweetest love letter from boyfriend to girlfriend, and a damned funny little adventure too. Last year saw a sequel, The Fowl Fleet successfully seek funding on Kickstarter, and in the time since creator Alasdair Beckett-King has teamed up with Application Systems to complete the game. There’s a new trailer, below, and a Greenlight campaign.

Beckett-King is a funny chap, as has been shown in both the free Spoonbeaks Ahoy, and in the utterly superb Kickstarter video. He’s funny all over again in the Greenlight appeal below, which also shows off the really rather lovely art style for the game:

And you’ll never see better hair on a game developer. Sorry Jon Romero, you’ve had your day.

The game has increased its reach since the more limited Kickstarter ambitions, and will now be coming to Mac and Linux as well as PC, and in proper HD. And coo, look at all the proper grown-up voice recording:

So, yes, I want to play this rather a lot. Which means you should Greenlight it for me. You can read more about the game here.
