View Full Version : Monkey Island Radio Plays

03-23-2004, 01:23 PM
After thinking about it for a bit, I decided to produce a short Secret of Monkey Island Radio Play. The script of the character dialogue is from the game itself, although I wrote the brief introductory bits. I also did all the voice acting myself and the sound editing. Music is from Secret of Monkey Island, Curse of Monkey Island, and Escape from Monkey Island.

The first episode is the Intro Scene from The Secret of Monkey Island, where Guybrush speaks to the Old Man.

The second episode features the introduction of LeChuck.

The MP3s are fairly small, about 2-3 megabytes in size.

Post comments if desired.

no offense, but i didnt like it at all. The lookout's voice was done horribly. And the fake british accent thing or whatever is crappy as well.

I didnt like the intro bits. It would be better if you used the extra time for the real MI plot.

Sorry you two didn't like it.

The Lookout's Voice was an attempt to somewhat sound like Dr. Fred in Day of the Tentacle. The voice of LeChuck's assistant was an attempt at trying to do an imitation of C-3PO.

I put the narration in there to make it more like an old radio play; because you are dealing with something that's just audio, the narrator describes the scene, setting up the scenario of the episode.

I liked it, apart from the radio stuff. Cos it seemed like that took up more time than the actual MI stuff.
I noticed the C3PO voice actually.

The third episode should have more story from the game in it...

Info about the third episode, along with audition information for those who wish to try out for a part, is at my site:
