It's not just any pirate who's willing to share treasure freely, but Nelly Cootalot is one such buccaneer, as a playable demo of her second adventure is now available for download.
The Fowl Fleet is a commercial sequel to Alasdair Beckett-King's popular freeware adventure Spoonbeaks Ahoy!. This time around, the "pirate heroine and defender of endangered and adorable creatures" must once again oppose the nefarious Baron Widebeard, who has "kidnapped a fleet of birds and hypnotised them to do his bidding. What is he planning? Can he be stopped? In what way is a frozen volcano involved?" Nelly's pursuit of the Baron will "take her from Port Rubicund in the South Seas to the lonely isle of Gloomholm in the icy north," where she'll "meet outlandish characters and face perplexing challenges in her quest for the Treasure of the Seventh Sea."
The demo starts players off aboard the Mailship Undeliverable, where Nellys is soon informed of her new quest by the ghostly Captain Bloodbead. But before she can set out on another swashbuckling adventure, she'll first need to get herself out of the mailroom.
The 85 MB demo can be downloaded for PC, Mac, and Linux from the game's Kickstarter page, where The Fowl Fleet is heading into the home stretch in hot pursuit of its £15,000 goal by June 29th.
