Development

The original Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert parted ways with the series after Monkey Island 2, and the new project leaders and designers were Jonathan Ackley and Larry Ahern, both of whom had previously worked on Full Throttle (the interface of the game was adopted almost entirely). Michael Land who provided the music for the first two games once more composed the soundtrack.

During production, examples of major changes include enhancing the role of Murray, the talking skull. Originally intended only to be featured in the first chapter, he proved so popular with test players that he was written to re-appear at several points later in the game. The ending was somewhat cut short, and a storyboard has been circulating the Internet which explains the chain of events between the two final chapters; a scene which did not make it to the finished product due to time constraints.[2] . ...


Guybrush has a deathly fear of porcelain. Bill Tiller, CMI lead artist, has revealed that "it is just a joke. It means nothing. Why would anyone be afraid of porcelain?".[3] “Fine China” redirects here. ...


The game was released on CD-ROM in 1997. It was later included on a CD-ROM compilation of Monkey Island games, bundled with The Secret of Monkey Island and LeChuck's Revenge.

After 'CMI' shipped, a Monkey Island movie was in the works. This was only brought to light when Tony Stacchi, a concept artist for the project, sent his work to The Scumm Bar, a Monkey Island fansite. The movie was cancelled in the very early stages of development. They published the artwork on their site.[4] Note that despite the name, this movie was not to be based on 'CMI' but rather on original material that was inspired by the entire Monkey Island series.

Story

After the vague and surreal ending of Monkey Island 2, Guybrush Threepwood is inexplicably found on the sea in a floating bumper car.

Eventually he approaches Plunder Island, which is governed by Elaine Marley and currently under siege by LeChuck himself. After a lengthy exchange where LeChuck is rebuffed in his attempts to woo Elaine, both notice Guybrush and he is quickly recaptured by LeChuck. While seeking a way out, Guybrush causes LeChuck to blast himself to smithereens (though he does return later), finds a diamond ring in LeChuck's treasure hold, and escapes the ship whilst sinking it.

He then reunites with his love, Elaine Marley and officially proposes to her, offering her the diamond ring he found on LeChuck's ship. Unbeknownst to him is the fact that the ring is cursed — Elaine gets turned into a gold statue as soon as she puts it on. Guybrush must then retrieve the statue (which is stolen almost immediately) and return her to human form.

Preparations

The Voodoo Lady tells Guybrush that he must travel to Blood Island to find a certain uncursed diamond ring to break the spell. In doing so, he must get a crew, a ship, the statue of Elaine, and a map as nobody knows where Blood Island is anymore. In his attempts to get a crew, Guybrush hastily informs Captain Rottingham about the gold statue of Elaine, which obviously piques his curiosity. The map also presents a problem as the only known map is tattooed to the back of Palido Domingo, who is tanning on an exclusive beach and does not cooperate in his quest. Guybrush must also find out where the statue of Elaine is hidden. The Voodoo Lady is a recurring character from the Monkey Island series of adventure games by LucasArts. ... Blood Island Blood Island is the second island featured in the computer adventure game The Curse of Monkey Island, and is one of three new islands introduced in the game alongside Plunder Island and Skull Island. ...

The Voyage

While sailing to Blood Island, the crew is distracted by sightseeing, whilst Captain Rene Rottingham boards the ship and fights Guybrush. Unbeknownst to Guybrush, on the sea, insult swordfighting is fought with rhyming insults and comebacks. Rottingham easily wins and takes the map to Blood Island. By fighting other pirates (in a way similar to the first game in the series), Guybrush learns various insults and defeats Rottingham, reclaiming the map. However, a terrible storm results in Guybrush's ship crashing into Blood Island, the golden statue of Elaine going flying inland, and the crew deciding to mutiny - leaving Guybrush on his own again.


Undoing the Curse

On Blood Island, Guybrush meets Griswold Goodsoup and other locals, including the cannibals from Monkey Island. Guybrush brings Minnie Goodsoup and Charles DeGoulash together, removes the cursed ring from Elaine's finger, gambles with smugglers to acquire an uncursed diamond, and other things. He returns Elaine to normal, and the two share a moment together before LeChuck's skeletal army seizes them. Griswold Goodsoup: Last of the Goodsoups Griswold Goodsoup is a fictional character in the LucasArts adventure game The Curse of Monkey Island. ...


Big Whoop

After a lengthy conversation with LeChuck, Guybrush is transformed into a child and left to roam the Big Whoop amusement park. Using a hangover cure discovered on Blood Island, he becomes an adult again and gets on the Rollercoaster of Death to confront LeChuck. In an unseen cinematic, Elaine reroutes the tracks, causing Guybrush to go through the same sections of the ride over and over, avoiding the lava. LeChuck chases Guybrush over and over, tormenting him with his fiery powers. Regardless, Guybrush manages to gather up various items to set off an avalanche - burying LeChuck under a mountain of ice. A hangover (veisalgia) describes the sum of unpleasant physiological effects following heavy consumption of drugs and liquor, particularly alcoholic beverages. ...


Some time later, Guybrush and Elaine are seen sailing off on a ship - just married, as various friends he met on his adventures wave to them.


Reception

Like the earlier Monkey Island games, CMI received nearly uniform positive reviews in the press.


Critical response

GameSpot praised the graphics style for making the game "as much fun to watch as it is to play",[5] JustAdventure emphasized that the "music is the best I've ever heard in a game; [...] it never stops and it's never annoying; it's always a joy".[6] RPGFan was pleased that the "additions of detailed graphics and actual spoken dialogue managed to take the already hilarious story to a whole new level".[7] The Adventure Classic Gaming review addressed plot criticism, saying "some [...] may criticize the numerous farfetched plot twists in this game", while "some may just call it creative writing!",[8] and Adrenaline Vault likened CMI to the adventure genre as a whole, saying: "The twin vitals of an adventure game are a good plot coupled with strong dialogue. This game has both, in spades."[9] GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information. ...


On the other hand, AdventureGamers, though citing the graphic style's "refusal to take itself seriously" was adding "immensely to the game's charm", found the secondary characters "criminally underdeveloped" and the ending "an anticlimax, leaving the player thinking he could have done so much more, if only the game’s programmers had let him",[10] the abrupt ending also a criticism voiced in the favourable reviews of GameSpot and JustAdventure. Also, PC Zone described that due to the introduction of cartoon-ish graphics "for Monkey devotees of the first two titles something tiny and almost intangible has been lost",[11] while still scoring the game a 92/100 praising the voiceover work and humor of the game. The minor fictional characters in Monkey Island are fictional characters who appear in the Monkey Island series of adventure games by LucasArts. ...
