Day 23: Game you think had the best graphics or art style.
Short Answer: The Secret of Monkey Island
WOAH. I have thirteen minutes to write this or risk missing a day. Can I do it? Yes. Will it be a quality product? We’ll see. No more time for rhetorical questions.
Ladies and gentleman and those not adherent to a binary system of gender, I present to you The Secret of Monkey Island. A 90s point and click adventure game from LucasArts and living legend Ron Gilbert. It’s a hilarious game, a fun game, a game that takes advantage of that whole pirate thing. But you know what else it is? Perhaps above all of those things? Nevermind the rhetorical questions, this is a gorgeous game.
Both in the limited close-up scenes (see above) and the overall landscapes, these pixel graphics were lovingly crafted by the Monkey Island team. There’s no way for me to fact-check and see how many people were on that team in time, so let’s just say it was Ron Gilbert alone, fueled by the power of drinking his own labor-intensive tears.
Seriously, look at that close-up. GORGEOUS. This was all pixels, my friend, but this ain’t your momma’s Nintendo. This is a computer. Personal. PC. And this is a computer game.
In all the years I’ve been playing games, I’ve spent way more than 20 bucks on The Secret of Monkey Island, claiming to the world that I need to look at its gorgeous graphics both original and remastered on every system it’s available for. I played through this baby on my freaking phone, for Chrissakes.
Bottom line. Monkey Island = gorgeous. Still holds up beautifully. A real work of art, I tell you.
That’s all I’m telling you.
Disney’s tribute to Robin Williams at the end of Aladdin.
That’s… actually really beautiful. Well done, Disney.
I actually watched Aladdin on Disney Channel a few days ago and not only did they show this image at the end of the film but they showed the entire movie completely commercial free. That’s how much they appreciated him.
Well done Disney, well done.
Now that’s some grade A respect from Disney right there.
