What is Willy Morgan?
Inspired by timeless classics like Day of the Tentacle and the Monkey Island series, the title will offer a modern take on the genre by having players collect clues and solve challenging puzzles in a computerized 3D pirate world.
As Willy sets out to discover the whereabouts of his missing father, the esteemed archaeologist Henry Morgan, he’ll unravel a web of secrets with the help of a whimsical cast of characters. Willy’s adventure may seem daunting at first, but humorous dialogue, freeform exploration and adorable cartoon graphics make this a quest that people of all ages can enjoy. Oldschool point-and-click fans are in for a treat, as the game references some of the genre’s most iconic titles through easter eggs and other subtle nods.
“Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town is an unapologetic tribute to the legendary point-and-click games that defined an entire generation of video game fans,” says Daniele Falcone, General Manager at VLG. “We can’t wait for people to relive their childhood through a fresh, modern lens and introduce a new group of kids to this endearing genre.”
