12:09 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story
MacNN has posted a preview of LucasArts' Escape from Monkey Island, a 2D/3D adventure title being ported to the Mac OS by Westlake Interactive. This preview provides a brief overview of the game's features and storyline, as well as a detailed list of the progress of the Mac port. Although there is still no final ship date, the game is in a very playable status and it seems most of the major hurdles have been cleared.
Here is Westlake's Jesse Spears on the progress of the Mac port:
Westlake Interactive's Jesse Spears, Lead Programmer on Escape from Monkey Island for the Mac, has been gracious enough to supply us with regular updates on the game throughout its development. Spears' last update in mid-December shortly followed the game reaching "First Playable" status. This week Spears provided us with news that the game was recently declared "Alpha" and approved as such by publisher Aspyr Media during the holiday break.For more details on this game, be sure and read the rest of the preview. The game will be published later this year by Aspyr Media.
"Escape from Monkey Island is looking very, very nice," remarked Spears. "32-bit OpenGL is very pretty, and the artwork from Lucas is gorgeous. The voice acting is really funny (it's a lot funnier to hear Guybrush Threepwood than it is to read his dialog)."
