Yes indeed, the smuttily named Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town will be splooshing on to Nintendo Switch screens everywhere sometime before the end of March, following on from the PC launch last year.
Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town is described as a “a modern take on side-scrolling adventure game classics such as Day of the Tentacle and Monkey Island”, a point and click adventure but with “contemporary mechanics”, which could mean it has modern game design or maybe it features people who fix cars using computer diagnostics, it’s unclear to me at this point.
Here’s some official blurb which has no innuendo in it all, and neither has the game. None. Not a smidgen. You’ve got Willy and Bone in the title of your game, what are you playing at VLG Publishing?
Willy Morgan and the Curse of Bone Town offers a modern take on point-and-click adventure games by having players collect clues and solve puzzles in a computerized 3D pirate themed world. As Willy uncovers details regarding his father’s mysterious disappearance, fans of all ages are able to enjoy hilarious dialogue, whimsical characters and charming cartoon graphics. Old school fans of the genre can appreciate easter eggs that reference iconic titles they grew up with during the good old days of gaming.
10 years have passed since the mysterious disappearance of Willy’s father, the famous archaeologist Henry Morgan. After Willy receives a strange letter containing a cryptic message he heads on a perilous adventure to Bone Town, an unconventional place full of pirates and shady characters, to once and for all uncover the truth behind what happened to his father.
