Thanks for making me feel very old! Played this on my third PC, the first one to have VGA 256 colors (I would have had to buy the 256 shades of grey version otherwise) and, yes it was unlike anything I’d played before.
Played every Lucasarts game after that, but too bad there never was a Loom 2.

Not to nitpick, but the “Tales from Monkey Island” you showed is not a remake oder remaster but a completely new game. A shitty one, but still…

The actual remastered version of Monkey Island 1 and 2 are pretty awesome though. 🙂
