Monkey Island Collection Discounted up to 61% on Steam

GAMING

The Monkey Island series of games by LucasArts are probably the most successful point-and-click adventure games of all time, right up there with Dungeon Keeper and Grim Fandango.

The brilliant news is that you can grab a bundle of the first four games right now on Steam for a heavily discounted price of R 106.72. You don’t need to buy the entire bundle to save, as the individual games are also heavily discounted. Buying the bundle is, however, cheaper than buying the games individually.

The discount lasts for another 32 hours, and you can grab it on the Steam Store.

The options available for purchase are as follows:

  • Monkey Island Collection – was R 274.00, now R 106.72 (61% discount)

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Back by popular demand, The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition faithfully re-imagines the internationally-acclaimed classic game (originally released in 1990) for original and new audiences alike. The development team at LucasArts is bringing the game into the modern era with an all new re-imagined contemporary art style, a re-mastered musical score, full voiceover, and an in-depth hint system to help players through the game’s side-splitting puzzles. Purists will also delight in the ability to seamlessly switch between the updated hand-drawn re-imagining and the original classic version.

The game’s twisty plot leads our naive hero on a hilarious, swash-buckling search for the fabled secret of Monkey Island. Tales of pirate wealth lure him to the port of Mêlée with high hopes, no money, and insatiable curiosity. If clever enough, he will win the confidence of Mêlée’s pirates and find himself blown by the winds of fate toward the terrifying and legendary Monkey Island — an adventure that would chill the bones of even the most bloodthirsty buccaneer.

The Curse of Monkey Island

I’ve sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I’ve never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. LeChuck is behind it, I’m sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie’s treasures. And if that’s not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, I will have to die!

Escape from Monkey Island

Spitting the sand of Monkey Island from my mouth, I wondered if the life of a mighty pirate was all it was cracked up to be. I’d ignored recent events that should have been warning shots across the bow of my soul, from my wife’s brush with death to the anti-pirate ramblings of an Australian gazillionaire. If only I’d chosen a different path, LeChuck might still be dead and the Ultimate Insult might have remained a mystery. If I’d never picked up a sword, the grog-swilling pirates of the Tri-Island Area might be unthreatened by the forces of gentrification and demonic heckfire. If only… suddenly, the hairy finger of a familiar monkey tapped me on the shoulder. It was time. Time for the biggest battle of my swashbuckling life.
