24th May 1999 More on MI4!
MI4 Rumours
SCUMM Bar host MixnMojo have posted a bit of info regarding a MI4... here is what they have to say:
Well, we've had a very interesting snippet. A Lucasarts employee has stated that Monkey Island 4 is going ahead, and will also be 3D, a la Grim Fandango. Not sure about this myself, but we have been given a name (which we're witholding for obvious reasons) that we're checking up on. Stay frosty people!
5th SCUMM Bar Quiz!
New SCUMM Bar Quiz time! The questions in this one are by our resident Amiga maniac Huz! This is a tough Quiz and I was only able to score 4/10! eeep!

16th May 1999 E3 Delivers!
Monkey Island 4! (And it's not April 1st!)
Marek Bronstring of Adventuregamer was kind enough to email me with some nice info! E3 News Center has a Report that basicly says that "There are Two MonkeyIsland4 scripts that are ready at Lucasarts". It also states that the mighty Tim Schafer is working on a new Adventure game! Life is looking good!

4th SCUMM Bar Quiz!

The fourth SCUMM Bar Quiz is available. The questions in this one were drawn up once again by MrMutton, and since he did all the Java work for me I was able to take the Quiz! Happily I was able to score 10/10!

SCUMM Revisited 2.0.10

Version 2.0.10 of SCUMM Revisited has been released, they have also updated their CMI Secrets section... well worth looking at!

12th May 1999 Not THE Secret
Sir SCUMM Bar Quiz the 3rd!
The Third SCUMM Bar Quiz is available. The questions in this one were drawn up by Mr Fossey, and I do appreciate the fact that he did all the Java work for me, Cheers! Since I had nothing to do with this Quiz I was actually able to try it without knowing the Answers! I scored 7/10... I think should play MI1 again ;-)

Monkey Island Secrets

MI2 Secret Scurvyliver emailed me somethings that are quite interesting. Want to know how to get Guybrush to appear with Elaine at the end of MI2? (See right pic)
Simply press ALT-W when you find the X on Dinky Island. Is it a bug?

Secondly, using SCUMM Revisited, he ripped these Audio files from the CMI Demo. They are of Dominic Armato (Voice Of Guybrush) explaining the Scene.

Mixnmojo reviews Monkey Island 2
MixnMojo have put up a review of Monkey Island 2... go read!!

Monkey Island Trilogy 14th!

PC Gamer UK (you remember, the Mag that got our hopes up about a Secret game from LEC?) have listed there top 100 Games of all time... the Monkey Island Trilogy was rated 14th. Which sorta makes up for them not listing Wing Commander at all! Also, Grim Fandango was 18th, Indy4 was 44th and Sam n Max was 61st.

MI 'Wholesome'
Jake R recently emailed me to tell me that "The Monkey Island series was rated "Wholesome" in the current issue of Time US." That can only be a good thing.... can`t it?

Problem? Then please e-mail Skyfox.
