The World of ShipAntics is a multi-platform point-and-click adventure game being developed by Studio POWWOW. ShipAntics stars a madcap crew of seafaring adventurers; Captain Fred, the warm-hearted skipper of the Barnacle, Amanda his precocious, wild and wide-eyed daughter and Otto, a cheeky young tall-tale touting Octopus. The game follows Amanda and Otto as they venture into the wild blue yonder, solving mysteries and puzzles with Fred and the rest of the crew of the Barnacle.

How do you go from gray-scale to color so seamlessly? It looks really good
