  • Virgin Interactive have announced the launch of the White Label, value priced game software appearing for the first time in North America. The White Label has been around in Europe for some time (selling more than 2.5 million units since its launch in 1995). No news as whether the Monkey Island 1+2 duel CD will be released, but it's a good bet that it will. The games will sell for about $9.99 and $14.99. Look for them in stores sometime in September.

  • With thanks to Cristy, you can now find out the meaning of the name Guybrush.

    1st August 1997

  • LucasArts now have a page for LucasArts Arcives Vol 3. Expected to be released in Late Summer or Early Fall (Autumn) the archive will include Dark Forces, The Dig, Full Throttle, Afterlife and best of all Monkey Islands 1 and 2. A Monkey 3 demo will also be included. Thanks to the Vegetarian Cannibal Errol and GhentZ for sending me info.

    9th July 1997

  • Unfortuanatly, a pirate Beta version of Monkey Island 3 is already floating around the Net. I know it's tempting, and people would really like to get their hands on it... But I ask you this, do you really want to play Monkey 3 before it's finished? I personaly would be happy with a few screenshots now and a really satisfying (un-bugged) gameplaying experiance once it is released properly.

    Problem? Then please e-mail Skyfox.
