Holland loves us Posted by: Dalixam | Comments (3)
Monkey Island and was mentioned In the Dutch news paper 'NRC Next' last Thursday, November 20th on page 35. Jaap Jansen emailed to tell us about it and was nice enough to include a scan of the article. I have no idea what it says, but Jaap provided a rough translation as well:


A lanky boy named Guybrush Threepwood wants to be a pirate and arrives on a Caribbean island. Soon, the attractive governess has to be rescued from a spook pirate. This is not the plot of a bad b-movie, but of a classic computer game. The secret of Monkey Island. This adventure game, from 1990, is still worthwhile. Of course, the graphics can not be compared with those of today, but what makes MI as much fun is its humor. A pirate apprehends you on the street and says. "You fight like a dairy farmer" Then you say "How appropriate, you fight like a cow!" Also the three successors are decent and have ensured a true cult scene. has been publishing for 10 years stories and art of fans. And in 2005, the American Hammond High School even witnessed a genuine Monkey Island play.

Our quest for world domination is one step closer!

Especially cool with words like "aantrekkelijke!"
Pft. English is so boring.
Nice mention :P
