Guybrush Threepwood is back in action! If you don’t know who Guybrush Threepwood is, he was the main character from the Monkey Island series, a great adventure game series from LucasArts, back in the 90s. LucasArts realize how great the game was and decided to do a remake of the first game in the series, named The Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition.
The original Secret of Monkey Island was the best adventure game that I’ve ever played and the Monkey Island adventure series were the adventure games that could make me chuckle & laugh. I’m so excited when I found out that LucasArts decided to remake the game graphics and sound but keeping everything else the same.
Oh I remember the old days when I was still in high school. Lots of us were playing the Secret of Monkey Island and every day we exchanged the Secret of Monkey Island walkthrough in the school during the break (there was no internet back then unfortunately :D).
The best thing from the Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition is that you can switch between the old graphic to the new one while playing. I don’t know why you would, but if you played the original Secret of Monkey Island before, you might want to do this to bring back the old memories and get an extra chuckle :D
Okay, can’t still see what’s the difference (sorry for the tiny size screenshots)? Watch this wonderful video from LucasArts about the Secret of Monkey Island special edition and if the short video can’t make you chuckle, I don’t know what else to say!

Looking forward for the release and the good old chuckles while playing the Secret of Monkey Island back in the 90s.
