Description

A unique mystical modern day point and click adventure game with game scenes based upon the beautiful visuals of Cornwall UK. As a down on your luck out of work deckhand you live in a run down cottage by the beach. One Stormy night whilst drowning your sorrows in the local pub you overhear two old fisherman talking tales of Cornish folklore, smuggling and the legend of 'The Secret Cove' One of the fishermen arrogantly boasts that he has proof that the legend may just be true, claiming he has the journal of a deceased notorious smuggler that will lead him to lost treasure. Your quest, which will immerse you deep into a unique world of stunning scenery & hidden locations is to find the secret cove hidden deep within the lost smugglers tunnels. To progress your journey you will need to navigate around the non linear game world, solve puzzles, find artifacts and create tools to help you on your way.

History

Back in 2012 we came up with an initial concept idea for a point and click adventure game, a genre we are particularly passionate about. After a few months of brainstorming ideas and research, we decided very early 2013 to stop talking about it and take action. At that point we closed our books to any new client work and dedicated focus to the creation of 'The Secret Cove'. We wanted to make a game that is not only challenging, has great game play and is good fun but also offers and immersive experience. We strive to make an in game world that is interesting, interactive and that looks beautiful. A game world where you can be active in the gameplay but also relax and enjoy the scenery around you.
