As a non-french person am I likely to get a more refined and cultured experience with this version?

Absolutely! But side effects include mild chauvanism and a penchant for fois gras.

Oh la vache !

Merci beaucoup, Ali. At last I can practice that French I (barely) learned but never bothered to use. Rends-toi compte, Ali !

I can finally take that trip up to Quebec for research on my upcoming MAGS game without embarrassing myself in a Tim Horton's again. With the help of this game, I can safely and confidently walk up to the girl at the counter and say "Hello, Quebec! I have returned! I love this country! I'm glad to be back! I'd like a dozen Timbits, please. Glazed ones. And a cup of coffee. I'll also need a few extra napkins. I tend to make a mess." (Bonjour, Quebec ! Me voilà  ! Je suis amoureuse de ce pays. Putain, je me caille ! Fais-moi l'amour ! Je bande pour toi ! Il est très grand ! J'ai l'herpès. Nous pouvons parler de ça demain.)

Nelly Cootalot makes learning fun! J'ai été dupé ! :cheesy:

Au revoir, AGSers. à€ poil !

Actually, you english-speaking people use the word "chauvinism" as something similar to "sexism". we use it as something similar to "nationalism" :D There you go! Your first culture shock as early as your first post!

PS: thanks for posting the game, Ali, I was about to advertise it on the French AGS forum when I saw you uploaded it here.

@Ponch: you're cute. Thinking that learning genuine French will help you communicate in Québec. God help you! You won't get a word of what they say ;)

@Calin: You'll definitely get a more cultured experience with this version, or let's say, at least you'll get a new experience, with all the cultural references updated to work in the Frenc-speaking world ;)

This may shock you, but I actually know that! I was referring to the French sense of cultural superiority (as opposed to the English sense of cultural superiority).

Anyway, thanks to Mathieu and Hervé I've just uploaded an update with minor corrections to the French (see first post).

No, Nelly 2 is totally not finished!

But a German version of Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! is now ready, thanks to Marcel Weyers (proof-reading by Tante Tabata, Kat Wallisch and Björn Ludwig).

Awww, man, Ali! Why didn't you omit the 'No'.:grin:

You had all the ingredients for a 'Cootalototal' Net panic at your disposal.:tongue:
...our low attention span would've made up for the rest and let us skip the 'not' in that sentence anyway...

Congrats, on the German release, Ali!

A niech mnie kule bijÄ…! Elum's finally done it -- and is also currently working on a Polish translation of Sam & Max! I've already contacted him and I'm currently drinking rum and eating raw fish in preparation for a role in a fully voiced Polish version of Nelly (and then both Sam AND Max, obviously).

Grajta, ludziska! Bo usiekÄ™! (laugh)

Thanks, Fitz.

I have no idea why it took me so long to Polish the game, because it was a pleasure to work with Nelly and all those funny looking spoonbeaks...

Now I want a real spoonbeak. :(

Arrr! With a brand new Nelly Cootalot game entering the harbour, it's only little time left to revisit her first epic adventure...

Call me a mad fool if you will, but I've just launched Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy HD! on Steam Greenlight in honour of Talk Like A Pirate Day.

Because it is 640x480 resolution, Spoonbeaks Ahoy doesn't run properly on some computers (including my laptop). So I thought I'd take advantage of AGS's new custom resolutions, and do an HD makeover on the game. The original artwork was mostly vector graphics, meaning backgrounds can be scaled up with minimal loss of quality:


Full Size

So if you fancy helping out an old AGS game, you could throw a yes vote Nelly's way.

Hey, a HD makeover is always welcome. :D Best of luck with the Greenlight, voted yes!

That is nice to know.
"Nelly Cootalot" is in my "favourite AGS games of all time" list. :)

Ooh a HD re-release of a Nelly Cootalot!
I can't wait. :-D
Hmm... has anyone ever done a HD re-release of an AGS game before, or is this the first of its kind?
