“In his return debut, the “mighty pirate” Guybrush Threepwood managed to scuttle his own ship, infect his hand with demonic voodoo magic, get stranded on a turbulently windy island, misplace his swashbuckling wife Elaine, and inadvertently unleash a zombifying plague across the entire Caribbean. Not a bad way to make an entrance. After managing to salvage the situation as best as possible, we last left off with Guybrush watching Elaine sail away with his long-time nemesis, the newly un-cursed pirate LeChuck. His inability to pursue his mysteriously departing spouse stems from a sword being suddenly thrust in his face by an unexpected visitor, which is where we pick back up again.”

“The early 90s can easily be considered the golden age of PC adventure games, thanks in-part to the development efforts of a handful of game designers at LucasArts. Games like Day of the Tentacle, Sam & Max Hit the Road, and The Secret of Monkey Island are among some of the best adventure titles of that time. Old-school PC gamers may recall with great fondness the humor-infused piratical shenanigans of the Monkey Island series in particular. Though many years have passes since the last island exploits of Guybrush Threepwood, a new Monkey Island adventure is finally upon us. It’s well worth the wait.”
