“Join Nelly Cootalot in this new point and click adventure game, and rescue birds hypnotised by the villainous Baron Widebeard. Explore a charming hand-drawn world, meet outlandish characters and face perplexing challenges in search of the Treasure of the Seventh Sea.”

Created by Alasdair Beckett-King, this wonderfully witty and inventive game is co-developed and published by Application Systems Heidlberg.

Alasdair Beckett-King … won New Act of the Year (formerly Hackney Empire) in 2014 and has featured on BBC radio as a comedian and sketch writer. He’s performed stand-up across the UK, in the Glastonbury Cabaret Tent and at the Edinburgh Fringe. He has created visual effects for short films and has written and directed them too. His science fiction fairy tale, ‘The Library of Burned Books’ was nominated for the Student Academy Awards 2013 in the Foreign Film Category. “They are burning books in the school, but the headmaster tries to keep the magic of storytelling alive for one girl. Featuring Timothy Block, Jessie Wills-Taylor, Angie Fullman, Elliot James and the voice of Roger Davenport.”

As with “The Library of Burned Books”, I came on board the Nelly Cootalot video game through the good offices of Liam Creighton, a film maker with a wonderfully varied list of credits, talents and accomplishments. For Nelly he was voice co-director/producer.

The widely-deeply talented comedian and film maker, Alasdair Beckett-King, is also a games maestro. I was very happy to be asked to contribute to “Nelly Cootalot: The Fowl Fleet”, playing the evil Harbour Master Van Zandt and a couple of other parts. Among others lending their voice talents to the game are Tom Baker, Susan Sheridan, Samantha  Béart, Timothy Block, Toby Longworth, Nicola Redman, Tom Ward and Shellia Kennedy.
