At some point, while LucasArts was still an independent company working under the supervision of George Lucas, it was decided that some of the old point and click adventure titles from the 90’s to be remastered and relaunched for modern gaming platforms.
This is how Secret of Monkey Island Special Edition and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge Special Edition made their appearance.
Unfortunately, adventure fans had to settle with just that because after Disney purchased the company things have changed and games such as Curse of Money Island or Escape from Monkey Island ( the 3rd and 4th installments of the franchise ) remained unavailable for modern gaming platforms and impossible to purchase through legal means.
But things have changed now: LucasArts decided to make a minimum effort and provide an updated version of the famous Curse of Monkey Island, now available for PC through Steam and GOG. Unfortunately, this is not really a remaster version but now there is a version that can be legally purchased, a version compatible with modern operating systems and hardware.
Curse of Monkey Island is now available for PC through Steam and GOG at a price of $6.99.
