Apple Previews Escape from Monkey Island
3:29 PM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Apple has updated their Games page with yet another preview, this time focusing on the just-shipping adventure title Escape from Monkey Island. The two-page preview features a description of the game's goals and gameplay and even a mild "spoiler" or two. Here's an excerpt:

In a refreshing change of pace, “Escape from Monkey Island” is a game that’s completely devoid of blood and guts — you don’t dismember your opponents, you disarm them with wit.


The game’s well-written comedic storyline is loaded with visual humor, double meanings, puns and anachronistic popular culture references, and delivered with irreverence and absurdity reminiscent of classic Bugs Bunny cartoons, or even Monty Python skits.


A big part of the fun is uncovering the many visual and verbal gems in the game. You can’t help but grin when you find an island called Knuttin Atoll, or meet a character named Jumbeaux LaFeet, or try to figure out how to use loony items like a can of chicken fat, wood shavings, an old inner tube or a monogrammed pirate’s hanky.

Fans of adventure games should certainly be excited about this one. Read through Apple's preview for more details, and watch for this title on store shelves in the very near future, brought to you by Aspyr Media.
