Creators of DeathSpank and The Big Bang Castle, Ron Gilbert and Clayton Kauzlaric have announced that their new title Scurvy Scallywags is coming to iOS, very soon.

Scurvy Scallywags a pirate-themed, match-3, RPG, puzzle mash-up for the iPhone and iPad and marks Gilbert’ first game since leaving Tim Schaffer’s Double Fine studio earlier this year. The Monkey Island creator had originally given the first details on Scurvy Scallywags back in March on his Grumpy Gamer Blog.


Today the duo released new information regarding their new title including the below description and this trailer:


The Premise: It’s opening night for the soon-to-be-a-hit play, Scurvy Scallywags and The Voyage to Discover the Ultimate Sea Shanty – but someone is trying to sabotage the production! It’s up to you to stop them, all while acting in the lead pirate role and matching your heart out.

The Gameplay: Scurvy Scallywags is a match-3 / RPG mash-up in the Puzzle Quest tradition. You move your pirate around the board by matching 3 or more tiles. With each match, the board shifts in the direction you swiped, so you can use strategy to line up your pirate with items you need or avoid enemies who are stronger than you.

The Plunder: Scurvy Scallywags is brimming with pirates, ships, loot, and more gold than you can shake your rusty hook at! Fight and pillage your way through four mysterious lands to find the hidden verses of a long-lost Ultimate Sea Shanty. Along the way you’ll dress up your pirate (to great comic effect), boost your stats, acquire special skills, complete side quests, and tick off 50 hilarious GameCenter achievements.


Scurvy Scallywags is due for release to the iOS App Store soon, we’ll update you all when we have more information on the games release.

For more information on Scurvy Scallywags you can go to Ron Gilbert’s Blog or the game’s Twitter account.
