Let’s Play the Secret of Monkey Island, Part 19

Row, Row, Row Your Boat

LOOK! A three headed monkey! I swear it was right behind you. Anyway, we left Guybrush on a mesa launching rocks at the beach, remember? We had just hit the banana tree. Threepwood heads that way to inspect the damage, but on the way stops at the chasm:

Are We There Yet?

We left Guybrush Threepwood passed out in the galley of his near derelict ship after doing some creative cooking. I guess we should check in on him…

You look awful. But that could just be the resolution… Guybrush heads up to the deck:

Yes, that does appear to be an island and seeing as the recipe we followed was for Monkey Island I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that’s it off our port. Continue reading
