Nautilus but nice

The Adventure Company announces Return to Mysterious Island.

Posted by Staff
Forget fishing. If you really want to find Nemo, embark on an epic adventure with Mina, a strong young woman alone on a round-the-world sailing expedition. Caught in a tremendous storm, she becomes stranded on the shores of a wild and apparently uninhabited island. As she explores her new surroundings, she uncovers artifacts, living spaces and technologies left behind by the people who came before her to this uncharted island.

Creating a new life, Mina builds a home among the ruins of Granite House - the strange ruins with which the island plateau is covered - and uses her survival skills against the wilds of the jungle. She soon becomes aware of a figure in the shadows who, seemingly aware of her troubles, offers her assistance. She eventually identifies this figure as the unsettled ghost of Captain Nemo, whose body is trapped in his ship, the Nautilus, deep below the island shore. Piecing together the hints and clues he provides, Mina must travel to the Nautilus, retrieve Nemo's body and give him a proper burial in order to free his tortured soul.

Players will solve a variety of clever puzzles and use the mystifying technologies found on the Nautilus to help on their return to civilization. The game offers beautiful, pre-rendered graphics and a fully intuitive, point-and-click interface.

Return to Mysterious Island is developed by Kheops Studio and will ship in winter 2004, published by The Adventure Company. Buy online at
