Druckmann has shared on Twitter a screenshot of Guybrush Threepwood with his character, which he has given voice to, thanking Ron Gilbert and producer Craig Derrick for the opportunity “who has exceeded his goals in life“.
Druckmann is a self-confessed fan of Ron Gilbert’s graphic adventures. So when he made Uncharted 4, a pirate-themed game, he jumped at the chance to slip in a reference to Guybrush Threepwood… several, in fact. It is so subtle that almost no one has discovered it!
These are the most successful external hard drives in Amazon Spain in different storage capacities.
Druckmann was also one of the colleagues who supported Gilbert when he denounced the attacks of “fans” angry about the art style of Return to Monkey Island.
This week, Druckmann also supported Rockstar after the massive leak of videos and images of GTA 6.
On Twitter, Druckmann also highlighted the average ratings for Return to Monkey Island, which has a 89 on Metacritic… the same note as the remake The Last of Us Part 1released a few weeks earlier.
Return to Monkey Island has been so successful that the aforementioned producer, Craig Derrick of Lucasfilm Games, has hinted that the next installment will be… Maniac Mansion.
