Jake Posted October 15, 2020 Share Posted October 15, 2020 This was mentioned in the archaeological discoveries thread but it probably deserves a thread of its own, so here we are. The Video Game History Foundation has launched a new preservation project, where they archive and investigate the source code and assets to games. More about that here! Their first Video Game Source Project is... The Secret of Monkey Island! They've apparently been digging through the source code and art from Monkey Island and will be discussing it live with Ron Gilbert during a ticketed event. (I'm going to just steal all their content and repost here): The Secrets Of Monkey Island: An Evening With Ron Gilbert (Tickets) Friday, October 30th 2020, 1PM-2:30PM PDT Discover secrets and never-before-seen content from The Secret of Monkey Island with Ron Gilbert and The Video Game History Foundation About this Event Iconic PC hit The Secret of Monkey Island turns 30 this October, and we're celebrating by diving deep into its creation with Ron Gilbert...and the game's original source code! Join us for an incredible afternoon of stories and secrets in the-making-of two classics: The Secret of Monkey Island, and The Secret of Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge. This livestream event features: Fireside chat with Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert, hosted by Video Game History Foundation founder Frank Cifaldi Never-before-seen content, including deleted scenes and unused art Stories from the game's development Audience Q&A This is a virtual event that will take place via a livestream link with your ticket order. (The stream will be archived and available to view later with your ticket.) 100% of ticket sales go to support The Video Game History Foundation, a 501(c)3 nonprofit preserving, celebrating, and teaching the history of video games. I figured we would want a thread to be able to talk about it while its happening, so here it is. I'm, uh, extremely excited to say the least. 7 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
