In 1695, Tew and his fellow pirates pursued a Mughal ship. His ship, The Amity, attacked the ship, the Fateh Muhammed. Tew was disemboweled by a cannon shot, and died instantly. Or did he?

Present day. Private Detective James Labbett takes a missing persons case, which unexpectedly leads to an adventure of discovering the truth of what happened to the pirate Thomas Tew, but he isn't the only one who has an interest..


How will Wayan get out of this situation?

Since I was reminded of the game by this review, I played it yesterday.

I had a good time. The puzzles were on the easy side since you rarely have many screens or items to check at any given moment but the whole game was engaging. I couldn't help but notice Broken Sword vibes
Spoiler: ShowHide
and also a nod to Monkey Island 2 at the end :D

The voices are a nice touch.

Wow they reviewed it!! I'd given up on them! That's fantastic, thanks for letting me know! And thank you for buying it!

3/5? Yes, I can live with that quite happily! They make some fair points. But what really surprises me is that Lamplight City also got 3/5. Whaaaa.

I deliberately designed the game to be on the easy side, although that has been criticised a fair amount. Yeah I was definitely inspired by Broken Sword!

Heh yeah that ending nod was too good to not put in!
