The game takes place in alternative reality, where in 1812 James Watts had invented the polar ion drive. That technology allowed humankind to spread thought the universe and settle on new planets. But with raising industry and huge profit, also came the "Kribbs" - intergalactic pirates and hijackers. Then, to guard the peace of planets, the Space Union was formed, which created a counter force - the Space Police.
The player controls Kaptain "Brawe" Brawurskij - a naïve, ambitious and silly captain of space police patrol ship SPS "Mazslow". The story begins with SOS signal from nearby planet Jama Spacea, where our "Brawe Kaptain"® has to locate crash site and then unveil the mystery behind it.
Kaptain Brawe: A Brawe New World is very similar to classic LucasArts point-and-click adventures, particularly The Curse of Monkey Island, in mechanics and cartoonish art style. Kaptain has humorous commentaries on most of the things happening in the game, and his logic is often unorthodox.
