I’ve seen some very mixed comments about the way this looks, but I think it looks pretty good. Not as good as if Bill Tiller had worked on the backgrounds, but very faithful to the original while bringing it a little more up to date.

There’s also a new Monkey Island in the works from Telltale Games. It’s an episodic series in the same vein as the Sam and Max series and Wallace and Gromit. Looks very promising and as some of the original creators are involved it could be just what the doctor ordered.
