Some of you reading this may not be old enough to remember, but Lucasarts used to be as famous for their adventure games as they were for their Star Wars and Indiana Jones licensed properties. The Secret of Monkey Island was one of those games, using the innovative SCUMM engine created by Ron Gilbert. It also marked the writing debut of Tim Schafer, who went on to become the funniest man in video games.
Lucasarts is bringing The Secret of Monkey Island back for XBLA, but with new and improved, hand-painted graphics. Nostalgic fans shouldn't worry though, since the game is exactly the same at its core.
