“My name’s Guybrush Threepwood, and I want to be a pirate!”
Nearly 25 years ago, this sentence started one of the best adventure games of all time: The Secret of Monkey Island. At least it is my favourite adventure game, and 4 sequels and a complete remake 4 years ago show that there are a few more out there, enjoying the game.
It’s the story of a young man wanting to be a pirate, meeting the love of his life and fighting against the evil ghost pirate LeChuck. I loved solving the puzzles as a kid, as I loved playing with my Lego pirate sets. And now with the game being available for almost any platform I still enjoy the great humour of the story—well, and obviously i still enjoy building with Lego.
Released in October 1990, soon will be its 25th anniversary. To celebrate this milestone of a great masterpiece I built a Lego set containing the three main characters—Guybrush, Elaine, and LeChuck—and one of the key scenes in the game: the monkey head, the entrance to the secret of Monkey Island.
In honour of the low resolution of the original game I decided to pixelate the prints on the Minifigs. Maybe one could think about printing each head with the pixelated face on the front and a normal one on the back, so who doesn’t like huge pixels can just turn them around to get normal ones. But for me, I prefer the pixelated ones for a change.
Thanks for visiting my project. If you like it, supporting it would be awesome!
