How did Guybrush get his name?
DPaint, the program used to develop a lot of the original Monkey Island game's graphics, stored character files as 'brush' files. The main character file (which obviously was of a guy) was simply called guy.brush, and that's how the name Guybrush came along. (Other sources claim the filename was guybrush.bbm -- this may or may not be true depending on which platform the file was created on. The assumption comes from DPaint only being able to use three character file extensions, but as the Amiga actually didn't use file extensions, it could easily have been called guy.brush.) Threepwood was decided in a company contest - the name comes from the book "The Brinkmanship of Galahad Threepwood" (US title). "Threepwood" is also rumoured to be the name of Dave Grossman's character in RPGs.
