WIP: First public Amiga release of The Curse of Monkey Island

Play The Curse of Monkey Island, natively without emulation on the Commodore Amiga(!) Amiga developer Betajaen made it happen. The current release is still very experimental and only supports RTG (AGA version is promised) and only allows you to watch the intro. However, the developer is very keen on releasing a playable release in the future. The Curse of Monkey Island, the third in the series was released in 1997. Following the events of Monkey Island 2, Guybrush Threepwood has regained his adult form and escaped from the zombie pirate LeChuck’s “Carnival of the Damned”. Drifting to Plunder Island, he finds his love interest Elaine Marley under siege by LeChuck. Guybrush is captured and encounters Wally, the diminutive cartographer from the previous game. His actions in escaping cause LeChuck to drop a “voodoo cannonball” which explodes, seemingly obliterating the villain. Guybrush proposes to Elaine using a diamond ring he found in LeChuck’s treasure hold, but Wally reveals that it carries a curse. Elaine is transformed into a gold statue and soon stolen by pirates. Guybrush receives guidance from the Voodoo Lady, who assisted him in his prior adventures. She tells him that to save Elaine, he must replace the ring with a non-cursed one of greater value which can be found on Blood Island.
