Retro Gamer used my MI screen shots

Just got the latest issue of Retro Gamer which in the edition have a tribute to the Monkey Island series. In there includes information about each Monkey Island game. I've also noticed they've used pics in there which are from the MI wiki and more the fact the ones that I've uploaded to the wiki. Like with the maps of each island, I can tell cause Guybrush is in the exact position where I've left him and in mine I've made sure the EMI maps don't have birds appear on them which I did and the Lucre Island has the path way to the secret lagoon. So it shows that the MI wiki is being noticed :D

If looking for the issue, it's issue 70 of Retro Gamer and on the cover is the artwork for MI2.

  • By the way, the cover artwork and the MI1-artwork at the start of the article are from my poster-project. But they've asked my to use it and sent me a free copy of the magazine for it, so it's cool :)

    Oh okay. Doubt you noticed the other pics they've used and noticed they're from the MI Wiki?
  • Nope, didn't notice that.

    Outside the UK we tend to get Retro Gamer a little late, unfortunately.
  • Are the fanmade pieces from the wiki (like a certain map) also in there?
  • The pictures of Homestar and Coach Z on the draft wheel in Strong Badia The Free! were uploaded to the Homestar Wiki by me, a few years back. :D

    What do you mean?
    The Monkey Island wiki only features screenshots or official artwork from the series.

    I think he's referring to this brilliant piece...

    ...official or not, I think it certainly deserves a spot in there.
