Jolly Rover

Jolly Rover is an indie traditional 2D point and click adventure game published and developed by Brawsome. The game is best described as a Monkey Island wannabe or homage, but with dogs. It looks like the Brawsome guys from down under are big fans of Monkey Island and its co-creators Tim Schafer, Dave Grossman and Ron Gilbert, as you can see in this hilarious trailer for their latest creation, MacGuffin's Curse. Let's hope that MacGuffin's Curse will also come to OnLive and the Monkey Island series would also be nice, though OnLive is not partnered with LucasArts. Perhaps Brawsome can do something about it with a funny trailer or an even funnier adventure game.

It be the golden age of pirates! Dogs of the sea! Quite literally.

Our swashbuckling sausage-dog star is Gaius James Rover, son of the famous clown Jolly Rover, who died from a blow to the groin from an improperly loaded joke cannon.

Following the tragically comedic death of his father, young Gaius, who insists on using his middle name James, goes to live with his uncle, a wealthy plantation owner on a small Caribbean island. While practising a particularly tricky juggling move, he accidentally taints a barrel of rum with tobacco, creating a potent and addictive brew which he coins ‘Jolly Rover’, one of the most prized substances in the Caribbean.

Alas, the wealth of Jolly Rover sales only manages to fill the pockets of his uncle, and Gaius longs for action and adventure and, more importantly, the opportunity to start his own circus and follow in the footsteps of his father.

It is not long before the fumbled juggling ball of opportunity raps Gaius smartly on the head yet again. While his uncle is away, a large contract for the potent and addictive Jolly Rover arrives from Guy DeSilver, Governor of the notorious Groggy Island, with payment upfront!

In a blinding flurry of optimism, Gaius pools his meagre savings with this advance and charters a ship and crew to take him to Groggy Island. Along the way he meets a colourful band of seafaring cutthroats, scallywags and rogues otherwise known as pirates.

It is here we begin to follow the short and stubby tail of Gaius across three wild and untamed tropical islands, as he attempts to fulfill his dream of starting a circus, hampered only by pirates, villains, voodoo, love and considerable lack of loot.

  • Over 60 beautifully rendered scenes to explore
  • 25 colourful, fully animated and voiced characters
  • Traditional point and click adventure with simple one-click interface
  • Organic and fully integrated hint and task tracking system
  • Unlockable extras include Captain Bio's, concept art, music tracks and directors commentary
