Ron Gilbert reveals plans for MI3 31 Oct, 2020 / 3 comments

The Video Game History Foundation conducted their "Secrets of Monkey Island" evening with Ron Gilbert to celebrate the game's 30th anniversary. A finished edited version of the event will be posted soon, but the raw streamed version is now available to rewatch for those who bought tickets and missed it.

The VGH Foundation unearthed previously unseen background artwork, sprites, cut-scenes and locations from Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2. They also demonstrated how a SCUMM programmer would have written code, and revealed the custom tools that they had to hand. It was wonderful stuff.

Oh, and Ron also casually revealed his original plans for Monkey Island 3, too. So there's that.

As soon as the public version has been made available, we'll share it here.

In the meantime, go give some love (or money) to The Video Game History Foundation for their incredible efforts and noble work.

    To play into a meme, 2020 really is the year of improbabilities. I ought to at least look up a report.

    I finally got around to watching this, and man, there are some hidden treasures in that stream! They have a lot of art and animations that were cut from Monkey 1 and 2 (including a lot of very fun random Purcell characters - even AGI versions of Sam & Max!), with the hightlight being full screen animated cutscenes for the Largo & LeChuck scenes in Monkey 2! Really incredible stuff, very much worth checking out if you haven't already.



    *EGA, not AGI. Getting through these weird days with a lot of alcohol.
