When is placed Monkey Island 1?


#61

It´s been done!

The answer: The year 3014

Sorry, Zak but that´s canon now! :smile:


#62

But if Curse is set in 1587 then Monkey Island 1 can’t be in 1726…


#63

3014! Which means Monkey Island is steampunk, even though Ron isn´t particulary fond of that genre himself…

Yeah, that’s the period taken as a background reference, without doubt, with things from more modern periods as well (grog, machines, cylinders… there are many…)

For the exact date… it’s the 17th of 3014.

Now I´ve seen it all.

We have a music thread?


#71

#72

But that’s about your mood. :thinking: So I can’t post this:


#73

I´m always in the mood for that.

That puts the insult sword fighting line “I am rubber, you are glue!” in a whole new perspective.

:nauseated_face:

Then again, Ron sucks at math. So either it is 1507, 1430 or he just confessed to having made Space Quest.


#77

(I believe that Ron has rolled his new dice before answering that question on the GG blog! :smile: )


#78

That is a confession I would wilco…erm…welcome! :slight_smile:


#79

They ought to add it in the Monkey Island Wiki ASAP.

Is there an official source for this?

No, I had this from the comments section in Ron’s blog. If somebody has a more reliable source, please post. :slight_smile:
