The World of Woodtick

April 9, 2010

This week our community got their first tastes of Monkey Island 2’s Special Edition.  Featuring locales from Scabb Island, we really wanted to begin giving fans a taste of how much time we were putting in to each backgrounds. Using the original art both in execution as well as inspiration, these scenes have amazing levels of details in them – and quite a few secrets for those die-hard enough to notice. Like Wally’s new maps.

But the world itself is the real story here. Woodtick, a seaside port on Scabb Island has been taken over the evil and diminutive Largo LaGrande. Luckily, our hero has allies to help him in his time of need. While Scabb has many sights to see, my memories of the island always take me right back to the first time I crossed that bridge with piles of coins and gold in my pockets. For those who missed out on all the nostalgia and want to join in, hit the jump to see Scabb Island in its high-res glory.

Next week we’ll be doing updates of Phatt Island, and if you’re nice about it we will be showing you a full set of concept art and telling you about the process all these backgrounds went through. If you’re nice, that is. Want to see the screens first? Hit up our Facebook and Twitter feeds and join up for the latest news.

    The “boat” in which Guybrush rows to the voodoo lady doesn’t look like a coffin anymore. Why is that?

    I just wanted to say that I deeply appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into the environments you’ve shown us, and I’m happy it’s so vastly improved over the original SE. You seem to be listening to the fans’ feedback; that’s very encouraging. And yes, I believe I speak for myself and for others when I say it’d be great to see the the process that went into the backgrounds.

    And showing us something related to Handsome Halibut wouldn’t be too bad either. 🙂

    Ah, you just gotta love this. I’d take the classics (1-3) again and again instead of 4 and “Tales of” any day. The revamp wakens up nostalgic feelings.

      Tales was amazing. Please don’t tell you never played past the first chapter. Or that you hate it because it’s not 2D.

    Love it!
    Only thing I’d change is adding a lot more stars to the night sky, maybe even a little milky way.

    The monkey island games were the first adventure games that I ever played as a child and so far I have never found anything better! I am so glad that these games are being re-done! Out of curiousity does anybody else not understand how adventure games have not gone further than just a couple of well known games like monkey island, grim fandango, sam and max etc etd?
