The Making Of Monkey IslandS

With both a new Monkey Island and a remake of the original on the way, people once again have the classic series on the brain. What better time, then, to catch up on where it all started!

Ron Gilbert, who wrote both the original Monkey Island and its sequel, has posted on his blog a picture-filled trip down memory lane, detailing some of the some of the design decisions behind what many regard as one of the funniest video games ever made.

It's the "making of" book you always wanted, but never got, because...well, there hasn't really been one. Makes you wish game and/or book publishers would realise there's a market for this kind of stuff!
