Manchmal sind Geschichten zu schön um wahr zu sein. Nachfolgende Story nehme ich einfach mal als gegeben hin. Wie den meisten Lesern bekannt sein dürfte, ist Monkey Island in einer Special Edition zurückgekehrt. Dazu benötigte man natürlich auch den alten Code. Wie Jedi Mudkip berichtet, sind dabei unveröffentlichte Dialoge gefunden worden. Man hat sie in der Special Edition nicht verwendet, nichtsdestotrotz hat man sie nun veröffentlicht.
Adam Bormann, einer der Designer von The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition wird zitiert:
One of the things I worked on was the new hint system, which meant a lot of digging through the old original SCUMM source code to figure out how Ron Gilbert, Tim Schafer and company were tracking the state of different puzzles and whether Guybrush had completed something or not. One thing I quickly noticed was that Ron and Tim had left a lot of notes in the code, explaining why things were the way they were, or putting a date when a certain bug was fixed. This was fascinating to see and read. […]
We did want to share the deleted and extended scenes with you though, because we were excited to discover them, and we think they’re pretty cool.
Nachdem Guybrush aus den Tiefen des Meeres entkommen ist:
After getting out of the water (Extended Scene)
When Guybrush gets out of the water after being thrown in by Shinetop, he runs into Governor Marley, and then this alternate exchange starts.
“You came down here to rescue me?”
“You were going to dive into that icy water and drag me out?”
“…Something like that.”
“You were going to brave the sharks and the eels to save my life?”
“Sharks? What sharks?”
“And then you were going to give me mouth-to-mouth resuscitation?”
“Don’t push it.”
