Behind the scenes on Monkey Island 2 SE with Gilbert, Grossman and Schafer
It’s been revealed that the behind the scenes commentary for the Monkey Island 2 Special Edition will feature designers Ron Gilbert, Dave Grossman and Tim Schafer, and to wet our appetites for the ultimate pirate game being (re)released this summer (is it the only one?), LucasArts have unveiled a teaser trailer of the three of them chatting away. Arrr!
The in-game audio commentary will have the game’s creators share their thoughts and memories from their time making the game. The trailer gives us an idea of what to expect; in it, the team discuss their creative roles. Creator Gilbert boasts about being responsible for everything while Grossman argues that he helped Gilbert with everything. Shafer meanwhile reflected on his lowly status as coffee boy – everyone had to start somewhere.
The game will also feature an in-game art viewer which will offer players classic glimpses of selected areas of the game. It’s a Monkey Island fanboy’s dream.
Can’t wait until the summer? Well Americans could always pop onto the PSN and buy the special edition remake for the first game.
