The Secret Of Monkey Island: Special Edition Comes To MGS
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Macgamestore.com recently added Aspyr Media's The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition to its lineup of game options. The game is a "reimagining" of the original 1990 title, updated with contemporary art, remastered music, full voiceover, and a new hint system.

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition faithfully re-imagines the internationally-acclaimed classic game (originally released in 1990) for original and new audiences alike. The game is brought into the modern era with an all new re-imagined contemporary art style, a re-mastered musical score, full voiceover, and an in-depth hint system to help players through the games side-splitting puzzles. Purists will also delight in the ability to seamlessly switch between the updated hand-drawn re-imagining and the original classic version.

The game's twisty plot leads our naive hero on a hilarious, swash-buckling search for the fabled secret of Monkey Island. Tales of pirate wealth lure him to the port of Mle with high hopes, no money, and insatiable curiosity. If clever enough, he will win the confidence of Mle's pirates and find himself blown by the winds of fate toward the terrifying and legendary Monkey Island -- an adventure that would chill the bones of even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer.

  • Go on a daring adventure in your attempt to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean
