Issue #50: Zzzzzz-huh?!
A sort of glorious return!
Yes, OK, sure, it has been a while. A month, no less. But, we have a good excuse: The CEO in his infinite generosity gave us a European-style month-long holiday, and… Well, we don’t get much around these parts, so we’ll take it!
Now, a quick look at recent happenings.
After revealing an absolute stunner of an Elaine/Stan relationship in The Secret of Monkey Island, we uncovered this deleted scene from LeChuck’s Revenge:
I don’t even know what to believe anymore.
We recently revealed Guybrush’s birthday… sort of. Consider this a campaign to make it canon.
A bunch of Curse of Monkey Island content has been migrated from The SCUMM Bar to Mojo. Which means it is actually readable now:
Two IRC logs with Ron Gilbert and Dominic Armato. (Of course, the Ron one is not Curse related, but you know… As good a place as any to put this.)
Marius did a large Mêlée Island walkthrough on Twitch. On his monochrome ST no less.
That’s it for now—some more summer vacationing is upcoming, but… well, we’ll be in your inbox when we get there.
If you want constant Mojo updates, we have stuff like daily Mojo-related screenshots posted to our Mastodon account. Don’t want to sign up for another generic social network? Check out our bespoke social network: M. Most anything you see on Mastodon will appear there, too.
