Jolly Rover (PC)

A Pirate's Life For Me

Game Jolly Rover

Platform PC

Genre(s) Adventure

With the recent revival of the point-and-click adventure genre, it’s hard to ignore the influence that some classic games have had on the more recent installments. A good example of this is Jolly Rover, an independent game for the PC and Mac recently released on Steam. With a 2D art style, island setting, and more pirates than you can shake a cutlass at, Jolly Rover was clearly inspired by the early Monkey Island games. Though there can be a fine line between homage and ripoff, Jolly Rover stays safely on the homage side, showing its appreciation for the games that came before while bringing some new ideas to the genre.
