The only pirate adventure that asks the question: What's sharper, your sword or your wit?
Did You Know?
While in the Goodsoup Family Crypt, Guybrush can crawl up a hole in the ceiling. His head will come out of a tree trunk in the forest from The Secret of Monkey Island
(1990), completely with nineties-style PC graphics. This is actually a reference to an infamous joke made in that game: while in the forest, Guybrush noticed a hole in the same trunk, with a maze of caverns below. However, it was impossible to climb through, because the game kept asking to insert discs which didn't exist. Many gamers missed the joke and thought it was a technical error. See more
The previous game Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge
ended very strangely: Guybrush finds himself as small kid with his "brother" LeChuck and his "parents" in an amusement park. In the beginning of this game, Guybrush is on the sea in a floating bumper car. No explanation is given what happened in between. See more
Captain's log: Guybrush Threepwood. Lost at sea for days now. I have no crew or navigational instruments. No provisions except a half-eaten corn-dog and, unless I find water soon, I'm surely done for. Only the hope of finding my love, Elaine, keeps me going.
After the credits, there is a little scene between a father and a son in "Big Whoop" amusement park, where the father tells the rumor about the builder of the park buried somewhere in the tunnels under the park. See more
Non-English language versions leave out the "A Pirate I Was Meant To Be" song section, as it relies strongly on rhyming of English words. See more
