I noticed Jack Keane is due for released in Europe on June 4 this year. Never heard of it in the U.S. but it is available in about 80 miles drive... Some GameStop stores have it by download in addition to that one distant store with actual copies, SO... I'm now playing it. Strange this game was released in 2008 rather quietly. It's sort of like Guybrush Threepwood/Indiana Jones... point n click adventure with plenty of wry humor and puzzles.
There's several funnys in the game; when the guards tell Jack about Dr. T's flying boat, Jack says "Ships float".
The broken rear light on the elephant is referred to as a butt light.
In chapter 12, Jack finds a hatch. When it's looked at, Jack says "4 8 15 16 23 42 useless information". Remember the TV series Lost? Hurly finds a hatch with those same numbers which are the ones he chose on his winning lottery mega bucks.
As Jack and Amanda sail off into the sunset, Jack says he wants a ship with 13 decks, referring to the game developer.
