De Singe's Lab - Appreciation thread

I thought this scene deserves it's own thread, everything about it screams classic adventuring, the art direction is pure Lucasarts heyday quality and the puzzle was perfect.

The fact that I really wanted to be able to walk guybrush around it after escaping is testament to that, even though I'd clicked the room dry of info I just wanted to poke into the corners a bit more or see if I could get into the backroom.

Lovely use of depth of field too, the flattening effect on foreground objects evokes memories of the 2D days.

A runner up is the voodoo lady's shack, really nice, it's a shame the outdoor scenes don't quite match up to the indoor quality but it's still damn good :cool:

  • It sure is, ill say the voodoo lady shack also, could really see it after seeing some shots from Sam & max, away is the dull, boring and sterile areas, i really hope sam & max will benifit from.

    Must say more of this even in Monkey Island would be nice :) They have shown us that i CAN INDEED be done :) those are 2 very very amazing locations, with some much depth and detail. spend alot of timing just looking with the mouse :)
  • i really love some their artist design. Both vodoo shack and the labotary were brilliant
  • The lab is now my all time favourite adventure game puzzle. It was brilliant.
  • I enjoyed that area a lot as well. It was a pretty cool puzzle figuring out what everything does.

    And on the topic of the Voodoo Lady's shack, anybody else notice that this is the first game in which we have the opportunity to wander around and look at things while she's present? In every other game, she would always disappear when you aren't talking to her.

    yep i after I end talking to her i was expecting that she would disappeared but she didnt. She was like: "suprise i am not going anywhere" xexe
  • The lab was definitely my favorite puzzle in the game.
  • Yeah, I really liked the lab as well.
  • Agreed. Needs more bondage!
  • Glad I'm not alone then :)
