New Monkey Island documentary takes a look at the creation of Return to Monkey Island
An extensive documentary by Noclip celebrates a nostalgic look back at the history of the early Monkey Island adventures and tells how the new instalment, Return to Monkey Island, came about.
Interesting not only for retro gamers: The Noclip documentary channel has dedicated itself in detail to the Monkey Island series. The 95-minute video sheds light on the development of the first Monkey Island and the subsequent instalments, but mainly on the latest part, Return to Monkey Island. The responsible developers have their say and well-known veterans such as Ron Gilbert also talk from the pirate box. There was almost a Monkey Island shortly after the turn of the millennium, set in a completely frozen future - did you know?
Return to Monkey Island, published by Devolver Digital in 2022, revisits the life story of pirate Guybrush Threepwood and spins it out in an entertaining way. Why father and son are sitting on a bench together in the latest instalment, how the (sometimes baffling) plot came about - all this is explained to you in detail in the video.It also explains how the partnership with Devolver Digital came about. But beware, spoilers cannot be completely ruled out here!
