Return To Monkey Island started out as a supposed myth that was announced by Ron Gilbert this April’s fool day. Many fans took it literally because Ron had emphasized that he dislikes the tradition. However, the other half of the spectrum was entirely fooled, rejecting the notion that the game was in the brewer.
The battle of wits between Guybrush Threepwood and LeChuck continues in Return To Monkey Island. It is slated for a release later this year but fans had been craving to see the game. The game trailer for the anticipated title was released 3 weeks ago, and the dynamic paper-doll art style mesmerized most of the community.
Fans love the direction of the game but some have shown concerns due to the unique art style. it is not everyone’s cup of tea but it is surely a scrumptious one. The players have grown to the papery art style when they saw it in motion.
Fanciers of the point-and-click adventure had been looking for more footage to satiate their cravings. The co-writer, LeDave Grossman has posted short 10-second footage on his Twitter handle. The clip reveals a brief look at Guybrush Threepwood striding through the iconic Melee Island in Return to Monkey Island.
New surveillance video for #MonkeyIslandMonday! Strange man seen striding purposefully on Melee dock, ignoring the pelicans and bar as though he had somewhere to be, some devilish puzzle to solve… @grumpygamer have you seen this? pic.twitter.com/Hplm9h9IHc

The clip shows Guybrush Threepwood walking through the Melee Dock while being lost in his train of thoughts. He is likely out to solve puzzles or to catch up with chronicles of his nemesis, LeChuck. Although the very short clip leaves much to be desired, it is still a good glimpse at the alluring direction of the game’s art style.
The series has changed its art style a plethora of times during its installments. However, fans appear to be mostly happy with the current one. The HD style did not suit the title very well due to the well-established nostalgic look of the game.
