Step aside Guybrush Threepwood! There's a new pirate in town, and her name is Morgane Castillo, who's set to star in her own comic adventure later this year in Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle.
This won't be the first time we've met Morgane, as the new game from Wizarbox is a spin-off of So Blonde, in which the feisty captain made her swashbuckling debut. Here the daughter of an infamous pirate becomes the headliner of her own 17th century "journey from playful girl to becoming the Caribbean’s first fearsome female pirate captain." Following the trail of adventurer Buckleberry Tanner, which she hopes will lead to the hidden treasures of Turtle Island, Morgane must also contend with Hilary Simpkins, a villain also reprising his role from So Blonde.
Written by Steve Ince, Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle promises five different tropical islands with over 50 high definition illustrated locations to explore. It will also be available on a number of platforms, as the game is currently in production for PC, Wii, DS, and the PlayStation 3. Though the game is a point-and-click adventure, particular attention will be given to the PlaySation Move and Nintendo motion controllers to utilize the unique features of those consoles.
While no firm release date has yet been announced, the game will be published by Reef Entertainment in the UK, and is currently on pace for release sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.
