About This Game

A place where pirates roamed the seas looking for treasure, and where one innocent 8 year old girl grew up to become the most famous Pirate of the Caribbean! From an early age, Morgane Castillo was a confident and feisty girl, playing with her friends and getting into scraps on Bounty Island. Living with her mother and bored of her chores and island life, she longed to go to sea, just like her pirate father Alessandro! But she was too young and young girls weren't meant to become pirates.

Not bad! The backgrounds are great, the character art's cute and engaging, the voice acting's better than I expected and the puzzles and gameplay are pretty good. There's a few minor hiccups like items the character won't take until she knows she need it (I hate that!) and one or two complex puzzles that seem to get slightly buggy if you don't do things in precise order. Overall though, these flaws were very minor and don't detract from the gameplay. There are also a few minigames just for variety, but nothing anybody will find overly taxing. These can be skipped if so desired.

This game is a modern point-and-click adventure game. That means relatively limited interface options and relatively few interactable items per screen. This is a fairly good example of the genre, but if you're not a fan of point-and-click adventure, this won't be the game to change your mind.

First of all, please be patient and give this game a chance. You just have to overcome the first chapter, after that the game is getting better and better. Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle is a classic point and click adventure game. The story isn't that good but still adventurous. The backgrounds and the characters are very beautiful. I played the english version and I gotta say I really liked the dialogues and the voice acting. Especially Morganes spanish accent. There are lots of references to the modern pop culture during the entire game. I had some funny moments. In my opinion, the game is a little too childish sometimes. Be aware of that. I think I don't have to tell anything detailed about the story. It's already written in the game description.

pros and cons:

- beautiful locations/backgrounds
- cute characters
- voice acting (Important: This refers to the english version! The german voice acting on the
other hand is one of the worst synchronization I've ever heard)
- low price!
- funny references to other games, movies and books (Battlestar Galactica, Steve Jobs, so
- not the best but still an entertaining story (I mean after chapter 1)

- tiring beginning (especially chapter 1)
- rather easy puzzles
- you have to click left mouse button after each dialogue line to continue the dialogue

After all, Captain Morgane is not such a bad game. If You like point and click adventures, I would recommend it.
I've really enjoyed it. 7/10

I don't know if I have the patience to finish this one, folks. Even though the artwork is fantastic, which has gotten me through several hours, this gameplay is wretched. You may have already read about the fact that you must click after ever single sentence just to get the next sentence or action to take place. I can almost handle that. The puzzles are uninteresting, but when you complete one and talk to a character about it, they still try to give you clues about that same puzzle. Add the fact that the navigation is slow and the writers obviously think they're hilarious and you have yourself a meh experience so much so that I need a really long run-on sentence to describe it.

Go find another point & click adventure.

+Bright, beautiful colors that go well with the theme of the game.
+Very artistic and detailed in every scene. No scene is the same or resembles any other scene in the game.
+Music that fits the game perfectly and doesn’t try to sound overpowering.
+Fully voiced dialogue – well rehearsed and done nicely by the cast who did the voices.
+No Crashes and/or Bugs that I am aware of.
+Pirates, treasure, and an adventure!


-No options in the menu. All you can do is change the voice dialogue and text of the language to English, French, German, Italian, or Spanish.
-Resolution did not match that of my native resolution (had black bars on both sides of the actual gameplay, but the screenshots show in full resolution).
-The animation of the actual characters on the screen could have used a lot more polish. I would say some of the characters would compare well with some PlayStation 2 characters.

This is my first Point and Click adventure game. It was a fun little game and it was enjoyable. The puzzles and combination of items weren’t difficult even though at times there were some tricky ones. The game had some flaws, but nothing game breaking. I didn’t experience any bugs, crashes, or anything of similar nature.

The story was decent and it introduced some funny, wacky characters along your adventures. The cast did a nice job on voice acting and from what I’ve read and heard on the forums, the original voices were replaced with new voices that matched the actual characters (hearing the first video to the third video on the actual store page is a HUGE difference – big plus on my end!). There are some nice jokes and a few Easter Eggs within the text.

The theme of the game is around the Caribbean Sea. You’re a young pirate woman who wants to prove to everyone that you can be the next best pirate captain. You have a lot of obstacles and convincing of others in order to make this dream happen. You’ll encounter rivals and haters who will want to end your dreams. There are some moments where the female protagonist has to help others out on their own personal agenda in order to progress further on her own adventure (this gives a bit more background story on those individual characters that help you along your journey).

As long as you have an open mind, don’t hate pirates, know that this isn’t a RPG; like treasures and an adventure – I would recommend this game to anyone who likes point and click games. I did enjoy this game and would give a 7/10.

I can see why this game receives so many thumbs down.
It's a nice game with nice puzzles, and this comes from an old school palyer (zack, day of the tentacle, full throttle, discworld, the dig, monkey island, grim fandango and so on). It's true the game fails in making the player laugh, but the puzzles and the story are fine... yes, some are illogical, but the gameplay is decent enough.
The Book of Unwritten Legends already became a cult, but that game is so easy that what really keeps it alive are the puns and jokes of the main characters.
This game is the opposite: it's a little harder but the jokes are terrible. Still, give it a try if you can buy this game for cheap. It's not worth the full price.

Captain Morgane and the golden turtle is a simple but fun point and click adventure game.

The game has good artwork as well as voice acting.

The graphics are ok

I have heard of people complaining about the fact that they must click the mouse to see the next dialoge I found this to be fine, I could read it at my own pace without missing any, so I liked the idea.

The story is pretty straight forward but is lacking in my opinion.

I also thought that most of the time I was talking or looking for something, it does seem that action was limited.

Not to sound harsh but the cut scenes are dreadful.. the animation is really poor which left me feeling dissapointed :/

That being said it's not a bad game and if you're a hardcore point and click game fan Id reccomend checking it out. If you're more of a casual pointing and click game fan you are not missing much.

No way, even if this was free I would return it. Dull characters, increasingly annoying voice actors (when you think you heard the worst they introduce you to someone that kills your ears even more) mostly illogical puzzles, the writing was awful and I could not tell if there was translation issues or if they were just trying to be funny. One of the biggest mysteries in the game turns out to be just a long drawn-out and crap pun that you hear near the end of the game. This kind of adventure might appeal for "baby's first point & click" but if you are over the age of 5 then this will just drain your intelligence. Avoid.

Ok let me start out by saying this game is far from perfect; graphics are lacking, puzzles/mini-games are pretty bad, and the story is pretty poor. But even with all of these shortcomings I personally enjoyed playing this game. It reminded me of a simpler time where a younger me was playing The Curse of Monkey Island. This is essentially a very bad version of that game, but that tie of nostalgia kept me playing. So, this positive vote is solely feed on nostalgia.

Won my affections despite some serious flaws. Let me start with what is bad about this game. First, the story wanders all over the place and about 1/2 half of it could have been cut without any serious damage to the plot. Further, while there is a villian in the game he gets no character development. Second, the game relies on too many puzzles that are tedious--there is a place in the game where a written confession is needed and there are ten steps required to make the confession from producing the ink to getting a writing insturment. It takes a certain degree of patience to make it through Captain Morgane. My own strategy was when I found the game boring I started looking at a walkthrough until the game seemed to pick up speed.

So what is good about the game? First, although the story wanders it does feature some nice plot twists. There is a genuine sense of adventure and of the unexpected. Second, the game flashes some moments of genuine humor. I won't spoil all of them but I'll mention one snarky bit, "She had the type of face that lauched a 1000 ships. That's why it looked so battered." ZING. There is even a Star Trek reference. Third, some of the characters one meets in the game are well-defined. The heroine of the game--Captain Morgane--is well-crafted as well as some of the minor characters. Finally, the game is nice to look at.

Overall, I found playing this game fun. True it doesn't rival Broken Sword or The Longest Journey but it's still is an above average adventure game. It took me about nine hours to finish and I don't regret the time spent.

It's your average... possibly a little above average point and click. Most of the puzzles makes sense, I feel like most of the complaining is coming from people who aren't really familiar with point and clicks as the "cons" are gameplay elements in most classics.

It's definitely one of the better pirate games on steam. The artwork is good and the voice acting decent enough.

An enjoyable pirate adventure with good graphics, voice acting and okay puzzles. It's not quite a new Monkey Island but fun nonetheless. Well worth the money, especially if you can get it on sale.

Be careful about a game breaking bug involving Diego thoush; it's possible to enter your old house when you first get him but you should wait until you've talked to him about it later in chapter 4. If you enter the house before, you won't be able to exit.

I just finished this game and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. I'm a fan of point-and-click adventure games and if someone were to tell me this is a game that came out in 1998, I would believe you as it feels right at home there. Like adventure games of that era, you've got funny and obscure solutions to problems and even a handful of minigames thrown in (with a surprisingly chibi style in a few of them). As it has been noted by others, for some reason the game does not start with a setup menu or even has a good one in-game. HIGHLY recommended to run "settings" in the captain morgane steam folder (common standard being steam/steamapps/common/captainmorgane) and you can then adjust it for higher qualitiy and widescreen mode.

I found the acting to be very good. None of the performances took me out of the atmosphere and all of the accents felt like they belong there. The music was excellent and I enjoyed all of the soundtrack even if it was a bit repetetive. Like the games of the 90's, though, that was fairly common and since it is caribbean themed and light it doesn't get annoying.

Other than a few minor bugs here and there, this was an adventure game worth playing if you're into adventure games. Since Monkey Island always has a soft spot in my heart, any pirate-themed adventure game set in the caribbean will spark my interest. :)

TL;DR - Good adventure game for anyone looking for a pirate style point-and-click adventure. Bad game for FPS players who need to kill stuff.

Long adventure, nice story line, if you can get around the sometimes clunky point-to-move navigation this is a very nice adventure. Recommended!

When it launched in 1024x768 I was surprised. When the game language defaulted to Italian (when my PC and steam account are English) I was confused. When I realised I had to click to continue every page of *spoken* dialogue I was irritated. When the first mini-game used the same keys that rotate your screen I was downright annoyed. When I alt+tabed out to fix the problem, then couldn't alt+tab back into the game because it had crashed, I quit.

If I had to describe 'Captain Morgane' in one word, it would be 'uneven'. Some of the riddles are quite simple, but others are ridiculously complex. It's nice to see a main character who isn't a white man with stubble, but many of the side characters are racial sterotypes (Voodoo Viliage? Seriously?) And the voice acting doesn't always match the subtitles. At one point near the end of the game, Morgane's English voice dub changed completly!

This game has a sound problem: on 5.1 surround sound systems, the voices come from the side/rear speakers and the music and soundeffects come from the front speakers, with no sound coming from the center speaker or subwoofer. This kinda ruins the experience.

Also, the game is just... slow and boring. There are much better adventure games out there.

Captain Morgane and the Golden Turtle is a point & click adventure game. As her father gives her command of the ship for her birthday, Morgane accepts a charter to seek out the legendary Golden Turtle by following a trail of clues the famous explorer Buckleberry Tanner left behind him.

Pros: The point & click genre is well represented as you pick up a whole assortment of objects and trinkets on your adventure, using them and combining them in creative and often funny ways to progress in the story. You come across a couple of strange or wacky characters on your adventure, and there's a few out-of-place reference to other games and movies in a hit-and-miss attempt to mimic the humor found in golden age Sierra and LucasArts games. The voice acting is ok, at least for the most part, and backgrounds look like the caricatural hand drawn style you'd expect. The story is child-friendly, and you must keep in mind that it's likely the target audience of the game as there is little to no jokes, not even subtle ones, targeted at a more mature audience.

Cons: The characters' 3D sprites clash strongly with the 2D cartoony background, and I'm not convinced it was the best choice. The story is short, and the puzzles aren't enough to make it the lengthy experience a Monkey Island or Space Quest game would be. Some jokes are corny even for children, I wouldn't even expect any giggle from a younger player.

Verdict: ★★★☆☆ - It's up to you

I'll recommend this for younger players looking for slightly challenging puzzles, but adults will find it easy and perhaps even a bit of a boring tale. It doesn't quite reach the levels of other point & click, but although I'm not the player this game is for, it still gets an "ok" from me.

This was just my opinion.
