There was a period (16 years to be precise) when nerds had resigned themselves to the fact that George Lucas didn’t care much about movies. Thankfully, we took comfort in the worlds of LucasArts, his gaming company that continually turned out masterpiece after masterpiece in adventure/puzzle fun. Even today those old VGA wonders command a sweet spot in my memory. So it wasn’t much of a stretch for me to post this fantastic Flash animation called ’The Secret of Monkey Island‘, which runs through the highlights of the classic game in record time.
Even if you’ve never spent anytime with Guybrush Threepwood, it’s a pretty entertaining little short. Kudos to animator, director, and voice artist Marius Fietzek for such a fine tribute to one of the best games ever made.
Seriously. Watch it.
