Having just moved into a new place, I have a large spot open that a landscape/panorama/mural type image would work nicely in, and I've started brainstorming ideas on what could be placed there. I already have a few framed adventure game posters (thanks to the hard work of Laserschwert) and was hoping to add a center piece along these lines. One cool idea that came up when I was talking with a friend was to make an image that somehow involved 10 or more old school adventure game characters. While it isn't that hard to find reference art for 10 or more adventure game characters, it was harder to imagine a context (place, mostly) that they could all be present in at once. That's when I remembered this image: High Resolution here Original Art Inspiration Here So, I thought, how hard could it be to make a similar image, but with Lucas Arts adventure game characters? (Answer... hard! But doable!) Which just leaves a couple questions to consider before I commit the time. First of all... Which 12 characters should be used!? And which character gets to be Jesus!? So, before I get too far ahead of myself, I'm starting out by soliciting some advise from the community. Which characters should be in it? Who plays the most pivotal roles (IE, Jesus, Judas, Mary). I think as a pop culture piece it would be pretty cool. Any other ideas on the exact location for the table would be welcome too, or even a cool new context for them entirely. Also advice on foreseeable problems would appreciated well.
Growing up in the 90s, I got to watch my older brother play all sorts of sierra and LEC adventure games, ranging from Kings Quest to Loom to even Freddy Pharkis Frontier Pharmacist. I never played the games until a few years later mind you, however I still managed to become obsessed with Monkey Island. Anyways, by the time 1997 rolled around, I had played through and loved Monkey Island 1 and 2 on my own, and eagerly anticipated the release of the Curse of Monkey Island, and the glorious return of Guybrush Threepwood. I wanted the game so badly for Christmas but my two older brothers convinced me that it would not be released until the New Year. Now by this time in my life, I had accepted that Santa Clause did not exist, and I had accepted that I would have to wait until my Birthday to play MI3. But on Christmas morning, there was one last gift for me to open, written as being from Santa Clause. I opened it, only to be so overwhelmingly shocked to see Curse of Monkey Island. I was so convinced that the game was not released yet, that I truly believed that Santa Clause was the only one who could have possibly gotten me the game. Thats right, The Curse of Monkey Island made me believe in Santa Clause Again. Now in retrospect, I realize that it was all a big ruse to get me excited, but that Christmas Night, when I booted up The Curse of Monkey Island and heard the first spoken words of Guybrush Threepwood, that was The Happiest Moment of my Adventure Gaming Life. So, whats yours?
