Hearty Monkey Island Pirate Game Bounty A'plenty to be Plundered!

Each year on September 19, brigands and scallywags ‘round the globe rule the day on International Talk Like a Pirate Day. And what better way to mark the occasion than by jumping into the celebrated Monkey Island® swashbuckling pirate games by LucasArts and Telltale!

Taking place each year on September 19, Talk Like a Pirate Day was officially started in 1995 by two Oregon-based pirate lovers and has since become a pop culture phenomenon celebrated by would-be scallywags all over the globe. The event has evolved beyond simple pirate speech with people inserting piratey activities into their everyday life by eating, drinking, dressing, blogging, laughing, Tweeting, and gaming … like a pirate!

The Monkey Island pirate game phenomenon all started in 1990 with LucasArts’ The Secret of Monkey Island, a graphical adventure PC title featuring an aspiring pirate named Guybrush Threepwood. The game was an instant critical success and has since spawned three additional titles, making it one of the most enduring videogame franchises of all time.
