Game on! 01 Jul, 2002, 04:01 / 13 comments

Anyone that plans to be in London over the next few months might want to check out the Game on Exhibition at the Barbican Gallery.

The Exhibition is based on the future and history of video games, with many many consoles and computer games both old and new.

'But is LucasArts represented?' I hear you cry.

Why yes, of course it is. Apart from the few Star Wars games there, a little game we have all come to love called Monkey Island sits between Zelda64 and Myst. Further down the wall you will find 3 pieces of Monkey Island concept art by Steve Purcell.

I didnt have my still camera there, but we did film them, so maybe i'll upload some kind of crazy low res screen capture of them for anyone that cares!

Mojo represented its self by completing part one of MI, and leaving guybrush bobbing and very drowned in the docks.

    I'm just back from the event and really enjoyed myself.

    I loved that Monkey Island concept art, but then I like that type of thing.

    The great thing about going during the weekday is that all the silly kiddies are in school! :D The whole place to ourselves, more or less.

    To anyone else that has been, was it me, or did that "Insert Coin" music (the one with the rotating coin) become really annoying?

    :)

    Ah, Monkey Island - killing Guybrush was funny, especially when the parser options changed to things like 'Order Hintbook'!

    Upload the entire video, Spaff! Unless, of course, it's not suitable for people under the age of 18 and actually illegal in this country....

    Anyway, lets see the goods! (Not THOSE goods)
