In this age of next-gen consoles & games its easy to forget names like Roberta Williams and Al Lowe--just 2 of the people responsible for great classic which, sadly have been discontiuned I made these sims no onlt to immortalize them on MTS2, but also to raise awareness of the possible extinction of adventure games. Download a few to show your support for these classics, they are still available. Otherwise these treasures may be lost

--the Dead red eye used for Pirate LeChuck is mine. Feel free to use it, I included it here. But please give credit if you post something that has my dead red eye creation on it. Thanks

--My thanks to yangn fo his Really disgusting zombie skintone found on the MTS2 at http://files.modthesims2.com/getfile.php?file=42857 (I'd salute ya, but someone ate mt arm lol)

Thank you very much for these characters!!!

It's nice to see that I'm not alone in missing adventure games, oh how I loved "The day of the Tentacle" or the "Monkey Island Series" (No 3 being my favourite.The comic style made it so charming).

Maybe you'll make Bernard Bernoulli, Hoagie,Laverne or the other characters from DOTT.

Please come back point & click!

I loved those games, along with King's Quest, and Quest for Glory. Any chance you will make Sims out of those characters?

Yay, loving monkey island, particularly Guybrush Threepwood and Elaine Marley, now Threepwood-Marley. Keep up the good work

awesome job on immortalizing classic video game characters. I never played Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle (and your other Loom sim) but an old friend of mine was a big gamer and he loved those games. Kudos!!!

Games based on adventure game characters?!

Mentions of Al Lowe and Robert Williams?!

Are you for real?

Do you take requests?

HI Silus
Monkey Island, Indiana Jones and Fates of Atlantis, The Dig, the George Stobbard adventure series, are still and forever in my heart. I still play adventure game (also for taking a break from Sims2) but obviously the design fashion, the graphic engine and players expectations are different now. I've seen that someone here (sorry, later I will get the name) posted Still Life paintings, this is my last played adventure. Very dark.

Thank you for these characters, I really enjoyed playing Monkey Island, it was years and years before Sims1, when Doom was at it first step (Uhh, so many nights spent with them!) and Lara Croft was only in the GAME LORD mind.

Ciao

Oh i loved all of those old point and click RPGs! Monkey Island, Simon the sorcerer, Day of the tentacle....this takes me back! Are you going to make some of the other characters? Elaine, Wally, The fortune teller, Largo...all classics.

Woohoo! MI sims! Thanks!
Too bad Lucasarts is only doing Star Wars games nowadays, I would love a new Monkey Island. And a third Laura Bow would be auwsome...

As I see here some true point and clic fans, do you guys know that some old lucasarts employes created their own studio to create a point and clic game: A Vampire Story (http://www.amegames.com/)
Looks pretty good so far, but release date keeps changing, hope it come out one day!

Sorry for the off topic post, but I hope it will interest some of you

Now I'll go and torture my brand new Guybrush, he,he
