Escape from Monkey Island continues in the hilarious anachronistic tradition of its award-winning PC predecessors, The Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, and The Curse of Monkey Island. Escape features an original cinematic story full of drama, intrigue, and, of course, sidesplitting humor.
The story follows wannabe pirate Guybrush Threepwood and his new bride, Elaine Marley-Threepwood. Upon their return to Melee Island, of which Elaine is the elected governor, the couple finds out that Elaine has been declared dead and that her office has been usurped by a slick--yet strangely familiar--politician. Escape from Monkey Island is highlighted by hundreds of challenging puzzles, which are set amidst dozens of rich and brilliantly rendered backgrounds.
