  4. Even though the same one came up during the last few weeks, I too failed. What is this saying about our ageing brains? 😂 ‘Monkey Island Heardle — Now your short-term memory is part of the game too!’

  6. Excellent. It’s great fun so don’t stress about the rewrite. Plenty of tracks is the key! 😄
  7. Spotted another two oddities that may or may not be present on original hardware: 1. After looking at EL POLLO DIABLO!!!!!, the music seems to skip back a few seconds each time. 2. A couple of times while doing the banjo challenge, I tried to play my note immediately after the music stopped and the cutscene for me being too slow immediately started. Normally you get a second or two so I think some timing issue sometimes reduces it to nothing. I worked around it by not waiting until the music ends.

  17. It rarely seems to come up in these sorts of discussions, but as I understand it Ron has a bit of a penchant for ‘it was all a dream’ and ‘what you think you see isn’t what is really happening’ sorts of stories, and has ended multiple games in this way. It doesn’t really change the discussion about Monkey Island specifically, but I think it’s useful context understanding that Ron enjoys stories like this where things are set up one way and then revealed to be something else. Ron and friends were only about 20 when they made these games. Christ, I could barely wipe my arse at that age. I’m guessing Ron experienced a story of this nature during the preceding years — quite an impressionable age — and it’s bled into his storymaking ever since. In a similar way, here we all are into pirates and loving theme parks, and there’s a good chance Monkey Island is responsible for a bit of that. 😄
  18. Yes, I suppose you would also disregard that if you’re disregarding the glowing eyes. I would imagine both were added in about 15 minutes flat before the crew jumped in the van to the floppy printing factory.
  19. I’m not having it. This is impossible. Is it based on an original track name or is it a fan name?!
  20. I’m sure I read years ago about how the glowing eyes were added to the end of MI2 to provide an out if needed, so I personally have always disregarded that detail and taken the rest of the ending for what it is. When looked at that way, the whole ending chapter is fairly literal and easy to understand. It’s two kids messing around, supported by numerous clues throughout the first two games. What else could it mean? The ambiguity always came from the glowing eyes at the end, but that has been cleared up by interviews and Return (including its little ending note).
