Game Summary
The only pirate adventure that asks the question: What's sharper, your sword or your wit?

I've sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I've never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I'm sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie's treasures. And if that's not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die!
Excerpted from ""The Memoirs of Guybrush Threepwood: The Monkey Island Years""

Key Features
- Third in the legendary Monkey Island series of graphic adventures
- Film quality animation, voice, sound and music--the undead come to life before your very eyes!
- Incredible high-resolution (640 x 480) graphics!
- A barrel of gameplay--estimated 30-plus hours!

Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis is also an excellent game from the same era.

Man. I need to get back into point and click games. They were my favourite as a kid, Monkey Island, Simon the Sorcerer, Broken Sword, Day of the Tentacle. Amazing games.

Hopefully the lockdown doesn't last as long as it's 30 years since it first came out

Seems to be £5.35 if you want the first two Special Edition games, Curse and Escape from MI.

Great price, great game

Awesome. Escape from Monkey Island is the same price. Now my collection is almost complete.. just need Tales from Monkey Island now. Fantastic set of games.

Bought and installed.

Hopefully these will run fine on my PC. Bought Borderlands 3 the other day, and it took 5.5hrs to download using my parents' not that fast broadband connection. Then to cap it all, the game wouldn't run (didn't even get to the menu) as not enough video texture memory (even trying some online fixes failed so I need a new PC to play that by the look of things!)

Plan on starting the first one later.

I am rubber you are glue!
The pre rendered backgrounds in this game are gorgeous.
This is one of my favourite games, great memories of playing this with my big brother and solving puzzles together

IRT Borderlands 3, have you checked if it's running DX11? If it's running on DX12 in the config, then that might be causing you problems. See Google on how to change it to DX11 (very simple). I had a similar issue.

The new interface in the Special Edition versions is awkward to use in my opinion.
Fantastic price and great game. If only on Mac too as that would be my day planned Supid work laptop won't let me install

This an the earlier Monkey Island games all run on ScummVM so should run easily and ScummVM runs on pretty much anything. If you have the old discs to these games or just the datafiles these games they will run. I copied the files off the original CD of Curse of Monkey Island and ran it on an Android tablet many years ago.

Many other games also run on it.

Bought all of them AND the Lucasarts Bundle with both the point & click Indy’s for under £8.

Just made isolation worthwhile.
What a masterpiece!
Escape from monkey Island is also the same price. Ordered both thanks

There are plenty of older games that are newer than that that I really liked. From your list I assume you prefer humour in your games. A few random suggestions probably missing really obvious games:

Book of Unwritten Tales, Runaway, Tunguska, Hector Badge of Carnage, Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island, The 5 Blackwell Games, Edna and Harvey, Gray Matter (and by the same author and same era as your listed games all the Gabriel Knight games),.

I'm sure others could list more. Not that much of note has come out in the last few years IMHO.

I think it rates up their with the first 2 games. The first one with voice recordings for me.

And also the first on CD. Monkey Island 2 on the Amiga came on 11 floppy disks (Monkey Island 1 was on 4 disks)
It el pollo Diablo

wish they would return the license to Ron so they could make the sequel to MI
Got this, and then the first two from gamivo - so 3/4 of the series (and possibly only good ones?) for £2.91, pretty good!
I loved this game, though never managed to finish it on the harder difficulty. So much fun (and so frustrating!).

Ah yes! Good old ScummVM. I've had all the correct files in the past, but god knows where they are now.

Cheers mate
Wish they would update this series for current generation, especially switch, I know you can play first one on playstation now

I don’t think this is a remastered version...

“Incredible high-resolution (640 x 480) graphics!”
You're right, it isn't. This one hasn't had the remastered treatment. It's a shame because the artwork is stunning but 640x480 is the max setting. You can obviously go full screen etc and it isn't, too bad? But the text gets pretty janky looking.
