Return to Monkey Island is out now, Linux version due soon

By - | Views: 23,668

It's here at last. Terrible Toybox and Devolver Digital have today released Return to Monkey Island, and for fans of Native Linux ports one is on the way. For the Linux side, developer Ron Gilbert said on Twitter: "Works on Proton and a pure Linux version is coming soon after."

"Return to Monkey Island is an unexpected, thrilling return of series creator Ron Gilbert that continues the story of the legendary adventure games The Secret of Monkey Island and Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge developed in collaboration with Lucasfilm Games."

  • Return to Point & Click Swashbuckling - Bringing classic point and click gameplay to the modern-day, intrepid pirates will solve puzzles and explore the islands with a clever evolution of classic adventure game controls. Context-sensitive interactions, reactive dialog trees, and an easy-to-use inventory system make pirating a breeze.
  • Embark on Archipelago Adventures - Navigate the sometimes-friendly confines of Melee Island, a familiar place that finds itself under new management by leaders who have put the squeeze on old friends and new faces. Venture out into uncharted lands like the aptly named Terror Island and the chilling outposts of Brrr Muda to make allies and enemies alike.
  • Created by a Legendary Crew - The new chapter in the Monkey Island series marks the return of the iconic series’ creator Ron Gilbert, joined by game co-writer Dave Grossman, art director Rex Crowle (Knights & Bikes, Tearaway) and composers Peter McConnell, Michael Land, and Clint Bajakian (Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge).

A long time coming for Monkey Island fans, hopefully it's been worth the wait. If you do pick it up, be sure to give some of your thoughts over in the comments.

You can find it on Steam.

No GOG release for some reason?

I'll wait for the pure version

Probably a rare full-price "day-one" purchase for me, though I’ll wait for the native version’s release out of principle :)

With all due respect to Ron Gilbert, I'm extremely skeptical of any "we pinky-swear that we'll release a native Linux build Real Soon Now" because way too many people have said exactly that and then gone on to do no such thing. This is a Windows-only get-when-it's-90%-off game until the native build actually materialises and is shown to have actual support. We've been burned too many times before. I would, of course, prefer it to be a properly-supported buy-at-full-price game.

I assume DRM Free is not compatible with Disney... I really wish it goes to GOG but my expectation is really low, like the Linux version of it, really really low.
YEY!! 😎😎😎
Finally this question was responded after the many requests in the Steam Forum. Maybe these do effect.

All previous Monkey Island games are there, so why not.

Besides, the publisher for it is Devolver Digital, not Disney. They don't have any problems with GOG releases usually.
