Video Game Wednesday - The Secret of Monkey Island

Today's Video Game Wednesday features

The Secret of Monkey Island.


I played The Secret of Monkey Island for a total of seven hours over the past day (yesterday and today) and I may look to try and finish it.

One of the neat features of the newer special edition which I'm playing is the ability to seemlessly switch between the newer, updated graphics and the original graphics. I mostly played the game with the new graphics, because it includes voice overs, but I would often switch to the older graphics just to see how the game originally appeared.

As a random fact, I tried to play the game back in 2014, but I hardly put a dent in it. I'm glad I was able to revisit the game and actually put some solid time into it.

If you like adventure games and pirates, then consider The Secret of Monkey Island.
