Jack Keane shipping for Linux

Runesoft has started shipping the Linux version of Jack Keane today.

Just drop a secret agent off on a mysterious island? Sounds good, thought Jack. After all, no-one said
anything about fighting a mad scientist and other horrifying dangers! Just Jack’s bad luck when his
ship shatters on that mysterious island’s cliffs, ushering in a sudden turn of fate…

The latest point and click adventure by the ANKH developers Deck 13 is now ready to set sail to Linux equipped computers. Runesoft has started shipping the Linux version of 10Tacle Studios highly decorated adventure game.

About Jack Keane

Colonial England. Under a certain amount of… duress… Jack takes on a job which will not only cause him a great deal of trouble, but also bring to light the answer to a mystery out of his distant past. A lack of money leads Jack to accept a charter to take a British secret agent to mysterious “Tooth Island”. When Jack’s ship shatters on the mysterious island’s cliffs on arrival and the secret agent quickly becomes a meal for a monster in the jungle, Jack is soon left to cope with the situation on his own.

“Tooth Island” is ruled by the strange Doctor T, who is cultivating man-eating plants and has his own dastardly plans for the British Empire. And why does he seem to know Jack, who can’t remember ever having been on Tooth Island? What are Doctor T’s plans? And what does he know about Jack’s past?

And then there’s the young and naive Amanda, who is filled by an almost fanatical drive to prove her worth. In the beginning the young lady is employed by Doctor T, and part of her task is to track Jack down and take him prisoner. It doesn’t take long before she begins to wonder if she is really on the right side, or if she shouldn’t join her opponent, the charming Captain Jack, instead.

A hair-raising hunt across the length and breadth of the dangerous island finally airs the mystery surrounding Jack’s past and leads to a spectacular showdown with a dark and deadly enemy and his nefarious henchmen.

    Is this available for sale locally in the United States? It looks great, but the $70USD from is just too steep.

    Yea, $69.88 is a tad steep. Wish they had the download option. Ordering in english, rather than german, might help too.

    It’s $60 on Tux Games, cheaper by a little bit anyway. :)
