Click on this story, play Monkey Island Special Edition

10:20 AM on 04.30.2010 // Nick Chester

Since you're probably at work and looking to slack off, I have just the thing for you: The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition. Yeah, after the jump (provided you're running Windows) you can play the game right here in your browser.

The playable game marks the launch of InstantAction's direct-to-consumer videogame distribution service, which will let publishers embed "premium" games anywhere on the web. Like after the jump, for instance. Did I mention that yet?

While the fancy tech to make this happen only currently works on Windows PCs, InstantAction says that future games will support Mac and mobile devices on "a title-by-title basis."

The game as embedded after the jump is limited to 20 minutes of play time, but you can purchase the entire thing (and play it anywhere, including on Facebook) for $9.99.
