Mojo Hits 25 With a Look Back at Its Glory Days 22 May, 2023 / 6 comments

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.

    Happy (belated) anniversary Mojo! Although I’ve spent most of it as a lurker, it’s been a fun, fun ride! So many great articles over the years and so many (mostly good) memories!

    Here’s to 25 more!

    I've followed this site for who knows how long, probably using a trusty 56k dial up or ADSL connection. I remember the days of the cancellations like an old sore, furiously signing that petition on and then feverishly checking back over the weeks and months to see if anything had swayed Lucasarts corporate mind.

    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

    As with most of my life, I've been sitting in the corner watching the shipshow swirl the drain for more than 20 years. It's one hell of a cliffhanger, I tell ya!

    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!

    I'm so glad I've been here through the thick and thin, first as a lurker from the very beginning and then as an active user since about 2005, when told me to with a very touching goodbye post. What a ride, Mojo! <3
