Mr. Coo has a problem. He lives in a weird, surreal world full of strange creatures, scary monsters and a mysterious lady with two enormous eyes. They all seem to have one goal in mind, make his life difficult while all he wants is to open that shiny big red box that he is sure hides some kind of treasure... Gammera Nest is happy to announce The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo, a fully animated 2D point & click adventure that will be released on PlayStation 4 early next year as part of the PlayStation Talents initiative.

The game has been developed by Nacho Rodríguez, a Spanish animator nominated to the Goya Awards for the Best Short Film category. In this truly unique adventure, Rodriguez wanted to create a video game that embraces classic 2D animation like classics such as Dragon's Lair did in the past. 

 

ABOUT THE GAME

The Many Pieces of Mr. Coo is a surrealist point & click graphic adventure. Mr. Coo is stuck in a weird, nonsensical world, and he needs your help to get out of it – but first of all he’ll need to find all his pieces and be whole again! There might be some philosophical strife behind all this nonsense, but with all the chaotic monsters, crazy robots and one-eyed ladies it’s kinda hard to say. 

With an astounding and colourful 2D cartoon art fully animated and a surrealist and whimsical story, full of absurd humor, wacky characters and crazy situations and innovative puzzles, The Many Pieces Mr. Coo is a fresh take of the graphic adventure genre that will bring together veterans of these gamers and newcomers alike. 

Mr. Coo and this game are creations of the acclaimed artist Nacho Rodríguez. 2D animator and director, Rodríguez has been nominated to the Goya Awards for his short film “A lifestory”. He also was lead animator of the game O.zen at Ubisoft. Mr. Coo is one of his most celebrated characters, having appeared in several hilarious short films.
