    Monkey Island, they're back

    *** The game is out now (19th September) on Switch and PC ***
    And it's getting amazing reviews - click here to see for an Xbox article.

    I'm sure some of you are aware of Monkey Island here, they were one of the most beloved series of games which many thought would never be back again until the creator, Ron Gilbert surprised everyone on April Fools Day (a day he said he would announce a new game if it was to ever happen).

    It surprised everyone as they've been working on this for two years and no one knew apart from those who were working on the game, they put a little teaser trailer out here.



    I'm sure there's people here who have some great memories of this game, similar to the Broken Sword games which I also made a thread on here.

    Just thought you guys might like to know if you didn't know already

    Edit: Added release date trailer (19th September)

    Gameplay trailer

    There will be a world premiere of this at Gamescom on August 23rd, it's looking really good.

    For anyone who might be interested, looks like it's being released on the Switch first and then the consoles as far as I'm aware.

    Yeah, they're so good! You can get the Monkey Island 2 and Secret of Monkey Island on the consoles too, so when this comes out also will have a nice collection :)

    Aw it's brilliant, I can honestly say it's one of the greatest series of games ever made, similar to Monkey Island genre (point and click) but it's incredible.

    This was the first game but they've had a few over the years.



    And this is the most recent one Broken Sword 5, they're absolutely brilliant!! :)

    Edit: I forgot I'd done a thread on these here :)

    Oh man! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I grew up with the Monkey Island series. 90s PC gaming was the best!

    I'll definitely be picking this up on the Switch. The Broken Sword games were great to.

    However, my favorite PC game series were all the Tex Murphy games. If you don't know about those ---check them out!!

    80's music and tv was awesome.

    Yeah, should be so good!! I'll wait for the consoles release as it's coming there too from what I can gather but the first release will be on the Switch :)

    I hear you about the 90's PC gaming too, so good!!

    I did a thread on the Broken Sword games here if you want to have a browse, I'd forgot I'd done this before but yeah, these games are so good and pretty consistent throughout too!! :)

    I'm going to look up those Tex Murphy games, I've not heard of them before but going to check them out now :)
