â€œNelly Cootalot is a Hootâ€¦ a delightful little adventure gameâ€
The response to our comedy point-and-click game Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet - (click here!
), with lots of lovely reviews and fan mails, has inspired us to bring Nelly's first adventure to Steam.

Nelly Cootalot: Spoonbeaks Ahoy! (â€œone of the loveliest AGS games ever madeâ€
- PC Gamer
) was released back in 2007 as a free download. Tens of thousands of downloads later, the low-res graphics don't really hold up on widescreen monitors. We want to give Spoonbeaks Ahoy a high definition makeover to get it running on current PCs.
â€œSplendid design, with gorgeous hand-drawn background graphicsâ€

The screenshots above are from the 2007 edition of the game. As you can see, a high definition version will suit modern screens much better:
Original Resolution (640x480)
High Resolution (1920x1080)
Nelly Cootalot, fearsome pirate and lover of tiny and adorable creatures, is charged by the spirit of a dead buccaneer to investigate the mysterious disappearance of a fleet of birds known as spoonbeaks. Her adventure will bring her face to face with the nefarious Baron Widebeard as she uncovers corruption and wanton punning in the Barony of Meeth.
