The World of Woodtick
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.
