Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet
Join Nelly Cootalot in this nautical indie adventure game.
Join Nelly Cootalot in this indie adventure game, and rescue birds hypnotised by the villainous Baron Widebeard. Explore a charming, hand-drawn world created by award-winning comedian and filmmaker Alasdair Beckett-King.
What is Baron Widebeard planning? Can he be stopped? In what way is a frozen volcano involved?
To answer these questions comes Nelly Cootalot: pirate heroine and defender of endangered and adorable creatures. Nelly's journey will take her from Port Rubicund in the South Seas to the lonely isle of Gloomholm in the icy north. She'll meet outlandish characters and face perplexing challenges in her quest for the Treasure of the Seventh Sea.
Alasdair created a first adventure game called "Nelly Cootalot - Spoonbeaks Ahoy" in 2008 as a birthday present for his girlfriend. It is not part one. It is a different adventure built in a much simpler style with a shorter story and has been released as a free game on the Adventure Game Studio site.
In 2013 he ran a successful Kickstarter and got in touch with Application Systems Heidelberg (ASH).
In 2014 Alasdair and ASH agreed to make the game even bigger and better and started to port it from AGS to Unity, allowing for HD graphics way more animations and other improvements. Quickly the budget of the game grew to a six digit number. Unfortunately the Kickstarter money was only enough to pay for the Voice Over in one language. Meanwhile 47 people have been paid for their contribution to Nelly.
