IncGamers has posted up a load of new Monkey Island 2: Special Edition screenshots, showing off LeChuck's fortress with both the classic art and the remastered HD art.
Monkey Island simply rocks. Those screens are so atmospheric.
Few games makes me so excited to see screenshots of! :)
I love the art style for Monkey Island games :D
even though i know every millimeter of these games I cant wait to play them again. Anyone know if the Loom guy is still in the bar on the first game?
Wow looks awesome, it is great to see the point and click franchise getting a make over, I thought it was virtually dead and had been lost to small flash based internet games. I actually own most of the 2D point and clicks (not 3D they never felt right) and I remember playing Monkey Island 2 on Scummvm a few years ago and thinking how great the graphics are compared to the original, full of rich colours and I even thought they are pretty good for that franhcise today. Except when I saw these lol. It is great to see them with a revamped style, what with Monkey Island 1 remake and the new episodes (don't like the 3d though), Beneath a Steel Sky, Broken Sword DC where will it stop? Never... I hope and it would be nice to see LucasArts or Revolution produce a new HD 2D point and click or at least a sequel, Broken Sword 5 anyone?. This is one of my all time favourite genres due to the nostalgia, comedy and atmosphere they bring and it is great it is back!
