Australian developer Brawsome is looking to bring their first title, Jolly Rover, to Steam, Big Fish Games and the like early this summer. Gamezebo recently took a look at the game and found that it falls in the same vein as the classic point-and-click adventure series Monkey Island, both in that it provides a simplistic interface, and that it never leaves players without some clue as to what to do next.
Jolly Rover follows Rover on his quest to become a circus dog like his late father. After his father’s death, Rover was sent to the Caribbean, his hopes seemingly dashed, until he created a drink using tobacco and rum that was so popular that it paid for a ship to return Rover to his dream of one-day being in the circus.
The game is set to contain over 60 scenes, complete with 25 voiced characters, and, according to game designer Andrew Goulding, should take around 4-8 hours to complete. Jolly Rover will contain dialogue trees, a hint system, and even action sequences that can be skipped if a player finds them to be too difficult to pass on their own.
There is no official release date set of the game thus far, but Brawsome hopes to launch the game sometime this June. We’ll have more information about the game as it becomes available.
