    Dear Mojo, I believe the fact that Ron released the source code for Delores deserves a dedicated post. If you don't make one, I won't love you anymore.

    Speaking of MI, Connor Mountain aka Scarfulu on YouTube has just started a 5 part retrospective of the series

    Coolest thing ever



    I'm feeling this version of Guybrush actually, I think with some work they could have added just the minimalist tone of snark needed to really make it.

    I don't think it's been in circulation for a good long time, and I can't even remember if this was the scene in the old video. But yes, the/a proof-of-concept video was floating around at some point.

    Wow, this is really cool, never knew this existed! It does make me really curious what Guybrush would have sounded like if they had made a talkie version at that time, since the character is pretty different from what he would become in CMI (and Dom wasn't working as a voice actor yet I'm guessing).

    I never knew this existed? Looks like Aric just posted it a few days ago. Has it been around for a while? It's worth remembering that it's a TECH demo. Seen a few online comments saying "the Guybrush voice sounds wrong -- glad they never made it". *facepalm*
