10Tacle Entertainment has said adventure game Jack Keane will be out here on 7th March.

A demo has been released today so you can give four of the game's levels a try. Just pop over to the official website for that.

Jack Keane is a swashbuckling tale of a man desperate for money. He charters a ship and gets mixed up in a plot involving a mad scientist, man-eating plants and evil plots to overthrow the British Empire.

It appears to bear more than a passing resemblance to the golden days of Monkey Island and parodies many films and games along the way.

Deck13 is developing the game. You might remember its work on fellow adventure title Ankh.

Quest over to our Jack Keane gallery to see what it looks like, or just download the demo and try it for yourself.

Eurogamer Germany gave the game 8/10, if you need a little enticing.
