Lead & Gold developer FatShark have their next game coming out on Steam in about three hours. Called Hamilton’s Great Adventure, it couldn’t have any less to do with their previous output. It’s a sort of single-player co-op/local co-op, in which you control adventurer Ernest Hamilton and his parrot friend Sasha, in a series of tile-based puzzles.

We’ll have some proper impressions of the game soon. You’ll be able to play it at 8pm tonight (oddly there’s no declared price yet), and in the meantime you can read our interview with the developers about the game. And there’s the new trailer below.
