The Ramblings of a Weirdo

Monkey Island - A Brief History of Pirating

Monkey Island is a gaming phenomenon which began in the 1990 when Lucasarts release the first in a series of vido games called : The Secret of Monkey Island on the PC, Atari ST and Amiga formats. Originally on four disks, Monkey Island was one of the great point and click adventure games built on the SCUMM engine - a virtual environment and scripting language Lucasarts used to tell their great stories.

Quickly following the unprecedented success of the first Monkey Island, Lucasarts released a sequel : Monkey Island 2 : LeChuck’s Revenge, while technically very similar to the original Monkey Island, it delivered new twists to the story, and another even more wondrous musical score from Michael Land to accompany your adventure.

Not content with two amazing hits, Lucasarts explored the depths of the next generation of hardware with Curse of Monkey Island now using much higher resolution mix of cell animation-style and 3D rendered graphics, and for the first time we hear Michael Land unleashed with live instruments, and voice actors to match the charactors we’ve grown to love.

In 1997, Lucasarts explored the full realm of 3D graphics in Escape from Monkey Island - which began to resemble a Final Fantasy-style RPG, with the same great story and the same actors and - as usual - a great music score.
