One of the things that I love most about adventure games is how the protagonists are never a certain 'type'. You get all sorts. Sometimes, they're hulking, muscular creatures. Other times, they're somewhat decrepit old men. Barely Floating's hero definitely belongs to the latter category. As one of the unlucky few that is being held for ransom atop a luxury yacht, you must, well, I'm not sure yet - escape probably factors in there somewhere.

Barely Floating will apparently be released as a part of the upcoming Summerbatch, a 'pay-what-you-will' collection of fresh new adventure games. Curious? You can check out Barely Floating's BigBlueCup forum thread here and bookmark the Summerbatch website over here.
