STEVE INCE REVEALS HIS LOVE FOR A PIRATE.

21 st September 2011

Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle, the adventure videogame of an 8 year old girl, living in the beautiful 17 th century Caribbean, who grows up to be its most famous pirate, is the brain child of adventure writer supremo Steve Ince.

With 18 years of adventure game writing behind him, there’s not a great deal that Steve doesn’t know and with writing credits including Beneath a Steel Sky, the Broken Sword series, In Cold Blood, and So Blonde (in which Captain Morgane first appeared), Steve holds an enviable position within the adventure gaming fraternity.

In his career to date, Steve has achieved three BAFTA nominations for his Broken Sword saga, Best story nomination from the Writers Guild of Great Britain and Best Video Game Script for So Blonde. When asked what his initial feelings were on developing the Morgane character, Steve said, “Moving into the new game with Captain Morgane, was exciting to revisit the same world (So Blonde) and some of the same characters put into a very different situation and a very different story.”

Steve continues, “The story is one of development with a character coming into her own. She starts as a child in the first chapter, and we quickly switch to when she’s about 17 years old where she’s getting the chance to prove herself in her father’s eyes and it’s a voyage of discovery for her.”

One of the key strengths of the game is its HD 1080p graphics on the Playstation 3 and PC versions. On any adventure game, investigating your environment is an essential tool is solving puzzles and deciding what action to take, Steve said, “The visual aspect of it is fantastic! To get such detail on screens is a joy really. When I first started in the industry working on low-res games that came out on floppy disks, you could only dream of this sort of quality.”

Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle will be launched in Q4 2011 on Playstation 3 featuring the Sony Move TM, PC, Wii and DS.

Steve concludes, “ We had fun. It is a comedy game and we don’t worry about being necessarily historically accurate because we set out to have fun – it’s a fun pirate game.”
