Featuring hand-drawn graphics presented in 1080i, a remastered musical score, and controls designed to be more intuitive, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition lets a new generation of players experience one of gaming's most revered graphic adventure franchises. Help a scrawny lad named Guybrush Threepwood realize his lifelong dream of becoming a swashbuckling pirate in this tongue-in-cheek adventure from LucasArts. Starting in a place called Melee Island, young Threepwood must complete three trials before he can become a booty-seeking buccaneer: mastering the sword, mastering the art of thievery, and mastering the art of treasure. Finishing all three will allow Threepwood to form a crew and set sail to the fabled Monkey Island, where he'll need to defeat an evil ghost pirate known as LeChuck. Trade insults with rivals, solve humorous puzzles, interact with eccentric characters, and engage in a three-way battle for the affections of a lovely lass named Elaine Marley. Fans of previous LucasArts adventures will recognize the SCUMM point-and-click interface, which involves selecting verbs from a predefined list before clicking on an object to initiate the action.
