"Do what you want, but make cool stuff!" was the goal and motto that George Lucas issued to his dozen young, ambitious and badly coiffed designers and programmers on May 1, 1982 for the development of computer games. Lucasfilm Games subsequently became a cult games company, not least because of "The Secret of Monkey Island" (1990): The Western world's most famous point'n'click adventure game owes its legendary reputation to a delightfully nostalgic buccaneer atmosphere, its Monty Python-inspired humor, and simply the fact that it revolutionized an entire genre.

"The Secrets of Monkey Island - On a caper with pixel pirates!" is a tribute to the adventures of Guybrush Threepwood, first wannabe, then mighty pirate. The book describes in great detail, in original sound, memories and anecdotes of the renowned developers, how the "Monkey Island" series was born and became a milestone in game history through unique storytelling. It offers adventure fans the opportunity to look back on the turbulent history of LucasArts, Telltale Games & Co., discover recipes for voodoo grog, sway interactive reggae and shine at an Ü40 nerd party with dueling sayings as sharp as cutlasses!
