Ron Gilbert, Pt. 2: Legacy, Learning, And… Diablo?

Yesterday, I had a chat with the first half of Ron Gilbert about his upcoming descent into madness (and in the game), The Cave. Shortly after, the other half of Ron Gilbert teetered awkwardly into the room, so I decided to speak with it as well. In this very special non-Cave-flavored episode, we discuss goofy adventure game logic, the ups and downs of being inextricably…

ReBooty: Monkey Island FPS Revealed

'Tis the season for it, apparently. Next from the roster of beloved PC games from the 90s to get a suitably modern first-person shooter remake is classic point and click adventure The Secret Of Monkey Island - now reimagined as an action title. "Time has moved on," said LucasGames chief modernisation officer Ian Koticiello. "We’re big fans of the original Monkey Island(TM), we’re definitely paying…

Not So Secret: Play Monkey Island Right Here

Well, the first 20 minutes of it. But right here. Lucasarts have gotten into bed with streaming browser game specialists InstantAction and come up with a clever special edition of the Special Edition of The Secret Of Monkey Island which fits neatly into an RPS post.

Following their remake of Monkey Island, a German modder is seeing how much farther the reinvention of the classic adventures can be taken. He's recreating Monkey Island 2 in the Cryengine. And it looks very pretty indeed. In fact, it's astonishing, capturing the original style faithfully, but rendered in 3D. Pics and videos underneath.

RPS At E3: Returns To Monkey Island

Even a week after the announcement, the news that there's to be more Monkey Island still seems hard to believe. LucasArts, once an adored development house, has become known in recent years for little other than churning out Star Wars themed products of varying quality. Attempts at new licences during president Jim Ward's realm failed (possibly in no small part because they very were attempts…

LeChuck Me: Monkey Island Returns

Shock! Classic comedy-adventure Monkey Island is coming back - twice. First up, we've got a remake of the original Secret of Monkey Island, complete with new graphics and - ooh, controversial - voicework. Then, Telltale (who handled the recent, divisive Sam & Max comeback series) will work with Lucasarts on five new gamettes, to be known as Tales of Monkey Island. Blimey. Hell just froze…

I Am Rubber, You Are Shoe: Monkey Island Sneakers

File under 'so pointless it's brilliant'. Via Ron Gilbert (one of the minds behind Monkey Island, and currently working on DeathSpank), one enterprising Spanish LucasArts fan's DIY The Secret of Monkey Island Converse trainers: One of a kind, baby. That image of the old guy by the campfire, from MI's first scene, always throws me back about 15 years whenever I see it. Aw. But…
