Monkey Island 30th Anniversary Celebrations
It seems Monkey Island is getting some media attention due to it's 30th annivesary. The British newspaper The Guardian has published an article on Monkey Island. The article is a bit generic but still interesting to read.
Despite modest initial sales, Monkey Island went on to become a cult classic, spawning a run of sequels and directly influencing an entire genre of graphical adventure games that would define 90s PC gaming
The magazine Retro Gamer also featured The Secret of Monkey Island on the cover and published an article about Monkey Island history covering all 5 games. In this feature they managed to talk with some of the creators and designers with some interesting quotes. You can check the magazine cover on Twitter and buy the magazine at Magazines Direct.
Craig Derrick also teased about Monkey Island again on Twitter by posting an initial concept art of The Secret of Monkey Island with the quote:
Looking forward to celebrating the 30th Anniversary of #MonkeyIsland this month!
So expect more news soon. Not only from Craig but also from us as we have a nice suprise coming soon.
