Screenshots of Vooju Island 04 Jun, 2009, 00:58 / 10 comments

So, with Tales of Monkey Island announced we now have two supernatural pirate themed graphic adventure games headed by LucasArts veterans in the pipeline. That other one, Autumn Moon's Ghost Pirates of Voojo Island (which for those just joining us is has gorgeous illustrated backgrounds and is in the vein of CMI and A Vampyre Story), has some new screenshots out which you can see over at Adventure Gamers and not here since our galleries are all screwed up.

I say "new," when most if not all (I can't be bothered to check) of these screens come from the magazine scans from awhile back, but this is at least the first time they're available in any kind of reasonable resolution, so check them out!

    I hope the backgrounds are now at a higher resolution... playing AVS at 1600x1200 showed the limits, causing the backgrounds to get blurry, while the 3D-characters stayed sharp. Plus that stunning artwork deserves to be produced at poster size!!!

    Beautiful.

    Wow, that looks really good. I'm not sure if the hand-drawn backgrounds will actually gel completely satisfactorily with the in-motion 3D (I haven't played AVS yet), but in screenshots it looks wonderful.

    That's some piratey goodness right there. As good as the new Monkey Island's look they can't compete with Tiller's gorgeous hand drawn artwork.

    We're spoiled for choice! It's such a warm glowey feeling. Has Bill revealed who's writing the script?

    Oh...I guess I assumed Larry Ahern was on board for it since he worked on AVS2.
  • neon_git on 04 Jun, 2009, 08:40…
    Huh? You mean it's not written by Bill?
  • jp-30 on 04 Jun, 2009, 10:54…
    Well, he will have the plot outline sorted, but hopefully a few other writers onboard (like he's done for AVS2) to hone the actual script.

    Somehow I'd missed that he brought other writers on board for AVS2. Neat.
