Features

Point and click adventure: Controls you know and love. Think Sam & Max meets Monkey Island, with some family recipe flavors thrown in that you can’t recognize. Is this vinegar?

Cartoon-Aesthetic: Toons and adventure games go hand-in-hand like ghosts and pirates!

See The World: Start in your home street in Brooklyn, head out to sea, get swallowed by a giant monster, get stranded in a spooky castle, enjoy luxury cruise, and finally reach the island full of treasure!

Actually Steal: Now you’re justified as an adventure game protagonist in your constant thieving!

Control the whole gang: Over the course of the adventure, you’ll get the chance to play as each of the 3 Swipers, sometimes all at once!

Streamlined Gameplay: The game’s cursor is context-sensitive, and hard to miss. So no need to worry about pixel hunting!

Boyfriend Sidequest: Some NPC’s will actually give Freddy their phone numbers. How many can you get? Who will you pick in the end?!

Puns: Roll your eyes so hard they’ll get stuck that way, your mom was right! The other option is to like them and keep your shame a secret. ( I won’t judge you, I promise)

Plot

The gang have just returned from their recent heist and have learned that they’ve disturbed the rest of famed pirate; Captain Downbeard. After failing to haunt them, he strikes up a deal with the gang. If they help him find his lost treasure, they get a cut of it. So when booty calls, you answer!

Chapter 1 opens with Downbeard ordering his new and slightly willing crew to fetch him items imperative to their shared quest. These trinkets seem to also conveniently be on the gang’s home street, so while Walt and Ralph “prepare” Freddy goes off to snag what Downbeard needs.

This all seems fine and dandy but is life ever easy? The heist still fresh, the gang is going to have to avoid any police attention, and now ghost hunters?! It seems this recent paranormal activity might be the lucky break some local scientists need.
