Look behind you a monkey with three (or four) asses!
Oh crap… you found the secret of Monkey Island.
That´s the second best thing I found this month!
What was the best?
You know, although I was actually refering to that old Get Smart/Monkey Island running gag (second biggest Monkey Head) there is some truth to that. But I´m not telling…yet.
It’s in his pants.
Fun fact: eggplant in Finnish is “munakoiso”. You can divide that word to “munako iso” and add a question mark after, which will translate to “is an egg big?” or (rather) “is a dick big?”.
Everything is connected!
Like testicles to a weiner!
Awww, you jelly bean!
Just wondering, have anybody tried to create a sequel of Monkey Island?? I can see bunch of Indiana Jones remakes and sequels by fans, but IS THERE any new sequel for MI?
Just wondering, if the storytelling can be good…
Good question. I think it’s easier to make an Indy game because they are more or less separate adventures which can stand for themselves vs. MI which is a lot about Guybrush himself and they have always continued his life in the story arc.
There is “Night of the Hermit”, which is supposed to be set in the Monkey Island universe, and there should be an additional talkie file, but it seems gone together with the creator’s homepage. The base game is still there all over the internet.
And there is “LeChuck Stories” (German only)
Both run on very old AGS versions and might not run out of the box on recent systems. Setting it on upscale with the AGS setup would probably help, since 320x200 in true color is rarely supported nowadays.
Here are all Monkey Island fans games:
MI2: Illusion – This represents a ‘little continuation of Monkey Island 2’, according to the creator. It’s in French, but you can also download the English version. The game is described as being very easy for MI fans (you can finish it in ten minutes), but a bit challenging for non-adventure-gamers.
MI: Carnival of the Damned – A game which appears to be VERY short, yet complete. It has no description at all, but apparently it does offer a nice guitar intro and “videos” (I’m not sure what the author meant by that).
Picaroon: The Lost Years – It started out as a Monkey Island fangame but, as I understood, the author came to the conclusion that it’s better to change the name and characters, rather than face the Court with a copyright infringement accusation. This game looks stunning and in a recent post (on September 19th) the creator announced that he’s still working on the game. Let’s all wish him the best of luck!
Monkey Island: Daementia – A French game set between MI1 and 2, “nicknamed <<Daementia>> because it is a fight in the head of Guybrush Threepwood”… at least that’s what the author said. It has some original backgrounds which look similar to the ones in MI2, not in style but in layout. The demo is worth checking out. It’s in English.
Night of the Hermit – Full game with voices too! And this time, the voices are not in your head… Listen to fans impersonating characters such as Herman Toothrot in this adventure where you help the Hermit win the rights for his grandfather’s mansion. Nicely made, but I remember it being kind of hard at one point.
Monkey Island 5: The Darkness of Monkey Island – Take a look at the screenshot. Go on. Click it. I don’t have to describe this game to you. It’s incredible. They are still working on it, everybody wants to see it finished… what more can I say except try not to drool on your keyboard.
MI: The Devil’s Triangle – Fun, long, interesting, with character sprites used as actors. Wait, what? The Devil’s Triangle is an experience that I recommend to any MI fan. Don’t expect artistic stuff or brilliant ideas. It’s not even point and click, but it’s made with a passion that is enviable. It even has cutscenes.
M:I-2 – Made by the same guy who was behind The Devil’s Triangle, this parody/game based on Mission Impossible and Monkey Island asks the question: “What if Guybrush and LeChuck were a bit more modern?”. If you want to see LeChuck in a tuxedo (if I remember correctly), check it out.
Monkey Island: Carnaval Vudu – Heheh…Vudu…snicker… ahem, yeah, so… Spanish game! The graphics represent a whole new style for the MI series. The author expects a full translation of the game when it is ready. No demo yet, but worth mentioning.
Monkey Island 5 Beta – More like a test than a game, the author plans to continue developing it. It feels nice and “oldie”.
Return to Monkey Island – A team from Italy worked really hard on this one. You can see that from the screenshots and it’s looking sweet! Still in production as far as I know.
Inside Monkey Island – Fangame made by a group of Italians, recently translated into English. Guybrush and LeChuck switch bodies. I think I’ve seen the title art somewhere before…
Fate of Monkey Island 1 & 2 – You play as a monkey that shares the same fate as Guybrush (girlfriend kidnapped, Largo to confront, LeChuck to kill etc). It’s interesting to see a different perspective on the classic MI storyline.
Legends of LeChuck – Want to know about LeChuck’s origins? Well, now you can’t. “C&D lettered”. Too bad, seemed really nice, especially since you played as Guybrush’s Dad. This game and FoMI 1 & 2 were deleted just a couple of months before Escape from Monkey Island was released.
Brother Island 1&2 – A Monkey Island Parody featuring Always Plywood and ghost pirate Zebuck.
Carver Island 1&2 – A strange Monkey Island parody in which Guybrush is named Francisco Gonzales and LeChuck is Mrs. Rodriguez.
Murray on Planet Christmas – Looks bad…really bad. But silly enough to be funny, maybe not in the intended way.
Pirates of Monkey Island of the Caribbean – The story from Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl, playable with Monkey Island characters and scenery. Awesome!
Tentacle Island – Hoagie visits Monkey Island and meets Guybrush. That’s kind of it.
Guybrush Power Melee – Arcade-ish…not very good but fun to try.
Guybrush Threepwood VS B-rated Food Products – Yeah, we actually found it. “A nice sequence of arcade mini-games”.
Insults of Monkey Island – Short, no animations, buggy… but still aliiiiive!
The Invasion of Monkey Island – Mini-games featuring Murray. Long intro, be warned!
Monkey Island GT – Italian platform game. Just a few Italian words…which you don’t need to play the game. Duh, platform.
Murray Game – Murray has to destroy peace signs. Yeah. Not very complex but funny.
Phatt Island Battle – LeChuck tries to conquer Phatt Island. Interesting platformer, received a high score back then.
Quest Fighter II – Guybrush Vs Indiana Jones? How about Purple Tentacle VS Bobbin Threadbare? Try it out and tell us who won!
Ron Gilbert’s Christmas Challenge – Help Santa Ron deliver all his presents!
Monkey Island: a Bad Day to be Dead – An interesting idea, especially since we all know of another game which explored a similar idea. Guybrush was killed by LeChuck and Elaine goes to the Land of the Dead to bring him back.
Monkey Island 4 – Seems interesting. Well, at least interesting enough for LucasArts to send a C&D. Project was stopped.
The Voodoo of Monkey Island – Looks awesome but it’s in German and it never got finished. What’s new? Click on the name for the techdemo.
Monkey Island Zero – Really worth checking out. It’s a youtube clip for now. The idea is somehow brilliant, in an awkward kind of way.
CMI in classic edition!
Too. Many. Games.
That link is wrong. Also points to Night of the Hermit, which isn’t really drool-worthy imo.
