We had grand plans for Mojo's 25th anniversary last year, at least until Return to Monkey Island was announced. And, as the CEO had made necessary cuts to our features department (“preparations for emerging financial realities”), we could only focus on one. Needless to say, ReMI won out over Remi.
But: We're still in our 25th year, and there is plenty of time left to celebrate. (Months!) To kick it off, Jason put his mean face on and made all staffers pick their favorite Mojo articles from our vast back catalog.
And he didn't stop there.
For those who really want to reminisce, former staffers Spaff and Jake get meditative as they look back on their glory years. Even telarium gets in on the fun, sneaking in a small Tales of Monkey Island trivia.
Check out the whole 12-page extravaganza and relive some true relics from our past. And more to come, maybe.
At had been a emotional roller coaster of a ride when years later remastered versions of MI came out, and I could share this knowledge with a similar fanboy I met at work. Oh the joy when he told me that Tales of MI was being made at the same time. It's these little gems that keep popping up, remakes of Grim Fandango, Full Throttle & Dott that make it so worth it. And then ReMI...
I just want to thank you boys at Mixnmojo for the hard labour (yes U intended) and serving up a forum for us like-minded lovers of all (but mostly Lucasarts and follow on developers) adventure games.
Although I keep to myself most of the time, I religiously check in on you every week or so, to make sure you guys are OK, and that the adventure game world is still alive and well.
I'm just gonna crawl back into my corner now
I'm not what you'd call an "active" user, so pardon me for barging in like this. I still stop by several times a week for the latest news but I usually end up leaving with just a snorting chuckle.
Keep it up everyone! You're doing great! You're half way to 50!
