Written and developed by Steve Ince of ‘Broken Sword’ and ‘So Blonde’ fame, Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle is the epic tale of Morgane Castillo, the young daughter of the renowned Pirate Alessandro Castillo and how she grows up to become the most fearsome pirate of the Caribbean and her exciting journey to discover the mysterious treasure of the Golden Turtle.
The reason for the reschedule came from focus group and fan feedback received during the build up to the Q4 2011 launch.
Craig Lewis, Commercial Director of Reef Entertainment said; “This is a very important launch for Reef Entertainment and we wanted to ensure that the game would meet the expectations of ‘So Blonde’ fans and new customers alike. However, following the feedback from fans and from our focus groups, we found there were a number of issues, including areas of the English voice acting, which needed to be addressed. We’ve therefore taken the decision to revise the game and as a consequence the UK launch has been rescheduled. But we’re pleased to announce that we’re on course for the Q4 2011 launch in France and Italy, with the remaining European markets following shortly afterwards. We’d like to thank everyone for their feedback and comments and we look forward to the launch in February 2012.”
We first meet Morgane when she is 8 years old, living with her mother on Bounty Island while her father is sailing the high-seas. But when her mother dies, her father, heartbroken, takes Morgane away with him on his adventures. Upon her 17th birthday, Morgane is told to find a crew of her own and a cargo to sail with. To the feisty and confident young woman, this sounds straight-forward, but in the dangerous waters of the 17th century Caribbean, this is more difficult than even she realises! However, along the way, we find out that her long lost uncle is still alive so she forges ahead and begins the journey for Turtle Island where both her uncle, and the treasure, awaits her.
Alessandro Castillo, Morgane’s father, is both proud and protective of his daughter. A respected Pirate, he soon realises that he’ll not always be around to look after her and decides to teach her his pirating ways and how to captain a ship of her own.
The merchant, Thomas Briscoe, hires Morgane to help him find something that he’s been obsessed by for the last ten years – the fabled Golden Turtle. A pampered and overweight man in his fifties, Thomas has a greater ambition than being just a successful merchant. All his life he has dreamed of exploring for riches, but his wife tells him he’s not the adventuring kind! Undaunted, his quest with the pirates is his one last chance of a real adventure.
