Wizarbox have been talking about their forthcoming point-and-click action-adventure game, Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle. The team behind Gray Matter and So Blonde say that together with BAFTA-nominated adventure game writer, Steve Ince (Broken Sword!), they’ve conjured up a game that captures the essence of what it was like living a life on the high seas way back 300 years ago, in the tropical yet deadly waters of the Caribbean. Here’s Wizarbox CEO Fabien Bihour talking about the game:

“We wanted to build on the success of So Blonde with a character we grew to love - Morgane Castillo. But more than that, we wanted to build a world which was a worthy partner to Steve’s great storyline and script. As a studio we’re experienced in creating adventure games and wanted to give the player as many potential directions and activities as possible. We had to develop incredibly detailed interactive environments and high definition enabled us to do just that.”
And here’s Wizarbox project manager for the game, Julien Millet, chiming in with his thoughts on developing the game’s environments and characters:

“Captain Morgane was a challenge from the outset, especially in developing Morgane’s world and the cast to fill it. We have over 40 fully fleshed out characters with back stories and 50 highly detailed individual environments set over 5 islands – it’s not just an epic story, it’s an epic game in itself!”
Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle will be released on Friday February 24, 2012.
