Video Game / Nelly Cootalot
Our Fearsome Heroine!

Nelly Cootalot is a point-and-click adventure game series in the vein of Monkey Island. The first game, called Spoonbeaks Ahoy! and released as Freeware, was created by one Alasdair Beckett from the Adventure Game Studio in 2007 for his girlfriend who also goes by the name of Nelly Cootalot.

In the first game, our heroine is in the midst of a rough sea bat—er, woken up from her sleep by the ghost of the great pirate Bloodbeard, feared by many a pirate but loved by all cute critters, who gives her the task of investigating the disappearance of spoonbeaks from the Barony of Meeth. When she gets her bearings and goes searching around the island, however, things stop being what they seem. Can our Pirate Girl clear up the mystery and save the birds?

Following a Kickstarter, a commercial sequel, The Fowl Fleet!, was released with 3D characters on 2D backgrounds and voice acting.

Spoonbeaks is available for download here.
