The closure of Apple's gaming site left a few feature articles unpublished. Thanks to Brad Cook IMG readers now have the opportunity to check out more of those articles with features covering Doctor Who: The Adventure Games and Monkey Island 2 Special Edition. The articles also include interesting commentary from some of those involved in the creation of the games.
“The Secret of Monkey Island is a videogame classic, but Monkey Island 2 is widely considered a masterpiece,” says Craig Derrick, who served as project lead for the Special Edition of that masterpiece. “The Monkey Island 2 storyline expands the mythology of the Monkey Island series in a similar way to how ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ builds on ‘Star Wars.’ There are just more characters, dramatic and humorous situations, places to explore, and puzzles to solve.”Click over to the links below to read more.

“I really like the world,” adds designer Ron Gilbert, looking back on his formative years at LucasArts and the game that helped him and fellow designers Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer make their mark on the industry. “When you’re first creating something, it’s hard to see how it will all play out, but I was very happy and excited about what came out of the first game and I wanted to jump back into that world.”
