11 video games that referenced a The secret of the monkey island.
Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End Good old Nathan Drake spent his latest adventure tracking down legendary pirates, but few as famous as Guybrush Threepwood himself. Our beloved character appears as a nice reference among many of the portraits Nate finds in his adventure. A beautiful work by the artist Hyoung Taek Nam that demonstrates the appreciation that Naughty Dog professes towards the LucasArts title.
Thimbleweed Park Unsurprisingly, in Thimbleweed Park, Ron Gilbert’s 2017 graphic adventure, we find references to The Secret of Monkey Island. The game hides a mysterious book called “The True Secret of Monkey Island” and in case you are wondering if Gilbert reveals this mysterious secret in the pages of him, what he is hiding is the most famous trolling on the Internet. How could it be otherwise.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Blood and Wine The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt references Monkey Island twice. In his fantastic expansion, Blood and Wine, our wizard will meet a pirate with a very familiar name: Mancomb, who, as you can imagine, refers to Mancomb Seepgood. Although this time he won’t laugh at our name, he will challenge us to a duel of insults. In Spanish, this character is called Goybrosh.
The longest journey The Longest Journey made a name for itself among point-and-click lovers in the late 1990s with a dark graphic adventure, twisted story and high production values. Among the toys of April, the protagonist of the first episode, we find an old wind-up toy: a monkey with cymbals dressed in a uniform baptized ‘Constable Guybrush’.
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II In Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II, they decided to throw the house out the window with references to our beloved graphic adventure and included a huge statue of Guybrush Threepwood and introduced us to Guybrush Threepkiller, a skin of the iconic protagonist with which we have can open between our enemies armed with two lightsabers. Pirate life is easier with the power of force.
Quest for Glory: So you want to be a hero Sierra’s adventures have also been able to make us smile in the 90s and in Quest for Glory: So You Want to Be a Hero, we find one of those funny moments when we arrive at the “Tower of Wizards”. In it, a gargoyle awaits us asking us about our mission, among the options we can find “I want to be a pirate”. If we select it, it will reply that we have played the wrong game.
Indiana Jones and the fate of Atlantis In 1992, LucasArts brought our beloved archaeologist to the video game Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis and they didn’t want to forget The Secret of Monkey Island. At a certain point in the game we find ourselves looking for an airlock by diving with a broken suit, if we don’t manage to do it in time the message of death we will receive will be: “Unfortunately Indy could not hold his breath as long as Guybrush Threepwood”.
Day of the Tentacle In the golden age of LucasArts, Tim Schafer and Dave Grossman brought us the long-awaited second chapter of Maniac Mansion: Day of the Tentacle and, of course, references to our cheerful pirate could not be missing. There are many that we can find during the adventure, but one of the most obvious characteristics Bernard identifies to breastfeed Edna as “Threepwood”. He does not struggle, of course.
Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag Ubisoft jumped at the opportunity to refer to Ron Gilbert’s game in a fourth installment full of adventures on the high seas, and it does so by including a pirate named Mancomb Seepgood. But this isn’t the only easter egg, at one point in the game, Bartholomew Roberts yells “there’s nothing like feeling the warm wind of hell on your face”, the legendary phrase LeChuck utters in The Secret of Monkey. Island.
Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate In the 2015 installment of the long-running Ubisoft series, we meet again with fun easter eggs. Among the screams we hear in one of the brawls on the streets of London we can distinguish some familiar phrases such as “fight like a farmer”. If you are as passionate about LucasArts work as we are, you already know the answer below: “as appropriate, fight like a cow”.
Sea of Thieves Sea of Thieves’ Pirates of the Caribbean crossover expansion surprised fans with an unexpected wink. In a corner of the map we come across a ruined ship surrounded by very special music: it is the iconic opening theme of The Secret of Monkey Island and if we venture to explore its cabin, on the table we will find a map with the same Monkey Island marked.
