THE MYSTERIES OF MONKEY ISLAND: ALL ABOARD TO TAKE ON THE PIRATES!

Nicolas Deneschau, Larry Ahern (Foreword), Guadalupe Gema Gil (Spanish Translator)



 

Behind the scenes, stories, jokes, creator interviews, and analysis of all the Monkey Island games.


Created in 1990, The Secret of Monkey Island, the world's most famous point-and-click adventure game, owes its reputation to its world of colorful, delightfully anachronistic pirates, its Monty Pythonesque humor, but also to the fact that it revolutionized the genre. It was one of the first games to include a complex dialogue tree and a ‘choose your own adventure’ gameplay, offering multiple storylines and a nearly invincible character, thus keeping gameplay focused on worldbuilding.


This book is a tribute to the adventures of Guybrush Threepwood, the great pirate. But it also aims to explain why Monkey Island represents a decisive step forward video game storytelling. Looking back at the turbulent history of LucasArts and Telltale Games this book will discover the true recipe for a voodoo toddy, learn interactive pirate reggae songs, shine at a social gathering of forty-something geeks and discover lines as sharp as a pirate’s sword (useful for duels or birthdays).
