Apple Games Features The Secret Of Monkey Island SE
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Apple Games has published a new feature article about Lucasarts' The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. Brought to the Mac by Aspyr, the game is a "reimagining" of the original 1990 title, updated with contemporary art, remastered music, full voiceover, and a new hint system. Apple's article includes an overview of the game, comments from Ron Gilbert, and some hints for success.
“I wanted Guybrush to be as lost as the player was, so they would learn together. From that came the opening line of the game: ‘Hi, I’m Guybrush Threepwood and I want to be a pirate.’ That laid out the entire game in one sentence.”Visit the site below for the full article.
Apple Games: The Secret Of Monkey Island SE
As you revisit Guybrush’s adventures — insult swordfighting! the Men of Low Moral Fiber! a quest to save the beautiful Governor Elaine Marley from the clutches of the undead pirate LeChuck! — you’ll experience his tale in new ways, thanks to updated, hand-painted art in widescreen resolution, a re-recorded and remastered musical score, and new voice recordings that replace the previously-unspoken dialogue. If you ever feel nostalgic, you can flip between the new and old versions on the fly, even in the middle of the action.
“I wasn’t involved in the Special Edition,” Gilbert says, “but they did show it to me toward the end of production and I was very impressed with the care they had taken with it.”
