10:04 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story
FiringSquad has a posted a short preview of LucasArts' Monkey Island 4 (a.k.a Escape From Monkey Island) based on a demo that was released for the PC last Friday. Keeping in tradition with previous Monkey Island games, Monkey Island 4 features an off-beat plot, snazzy visuals and loads of sarcastic dialog. Here is an excerpt from the preview:
The plot starts out strangely enough. Your wife, fresh back with you from the honeymoon, is declared legally dead and the Governor's Mansion (your home) is about to be demolished. It seems that an Australian (of all things) land developer is taking over the island and driving the inhabitants out of their homes through hostile take-overs. Naturally, in Monkey Island, a hostile takeover means something quite different from what you'd expect. Remember "Insult Swordfighting" in the 3rd installment in the series? Keep that train of thought...In related news, GameSpy has posted five exclusive screenshots of Monkey Island 4. Be sure and check them out. Escape from Monkey Island is being ported by Westlake Interactive and will be published by Aspyr Media.
