Escape From Monkey Island
We’re getting back to our roots and really pandering to our target audience (and ourselves) with this month’s throwback: Escape From Monkey Island. Released in Y2K, this beast of a puzzle-monkey-kombat-adventure game is full of some of our favorite characters, locations, inside jokes, and even a nod to the name of the pod itself! Hope you get a chance to play this gem, but if not, it’s kinda spoilerproof, so strap in and enjoy!
We talk A LOT about the game from a high level, then get into the gameplay specifics finally (26:15), before eventually playing an appetizing round of “What’s The Drink? What’s The Song?” (46:45). Of course we talk about every other game we’ve been playing as of late (65:30), and at some point get to talking about next month’s game (75:45). (SPOILER ALERT: It’s Donut County!)
As always, you can find the podcast in these places:
- Jason’s drink was Grog stolen from a vending machine and his song was Yo, Ho! (A Pirate’s Life For Me)
- Corrigan’s drink was a Flat White and her song was “I Can’t Go for That (No Can Do)” by Hall & Oates
- Ben’s drink was Grog Jr. and his song was The Wellerman
