A pirate's life for me!
Developer Christoph Schultz has announced that Cleo: A Pirate’s Tale is making its way to Switch on August 10th, 2022. The game is priced at $15 and takes up 2.6 GB of space. Cleo: A Pirate’s Tale is playable in TV, Tabletop, and Handheld modes, and includes both English and German language options.
Cleo is a solo-developed, top-down, pixel-art, retro, pirate adventure with a lot of nostalgic flair, humor and a linear story. The game is inspired by classic Zelda games and the LucasArts adventure games of old.
Cleo is a 14 year old cynical girl, living a repetitive life with her father in a bar. She knows everything about the epic adventures of pirate legend Captain Cabeca, but in her everyday life, she is just surrounded by boring fishermen and unsuccessful pirates, hanging around at the counter.
But when Cleo finds a strange pirate-logbook and sees a ghost, who gives her a mysterious hint, her boring life is about to get turned upside down. She is thrown into a dangerous adventure and finds herself in a world of lies, deceit, greed and bad breath - the world of pirates - and most of them are looking for the same thing:
THE TREASURE OF ETERNAL MEMORY.
Cleo: A Pirate’s Tale was originally a Kickstarter project that was successfully funded back in 2020, and it eventually released for PC in 2021.
