What Monkey Island 2 would look like with the CryEngine

Ever considered what LeChuck’s Revenge would look like if it was created using the same engine the visual powerhouse title Cryis uses? At least one guy has. Hannes Appel is doing the silly -- and absolutely awesome -- right now: he’s making a Monkey Island 2: LeChuck’s Revenge level using CryEngine 2. Below the fold is a brief cinematic trailer he made that showcases the classic 2D adventure game with scrumptious 3D and beautiful modeling stuff.

Appel has a Web site and a few more videos for this project, as well as few screenshots, details, and programming notes. He also has a gaggle of other projects that may or may not tickle your fancy. One caveat: the rest of his stuff isn’t strictly games-related, but the man does love CryEngine 2.

This video (and a few of his others) has appeared on the Internet before, so please don’t have a heart attack in the rush to type “OLD!” in the comments. We just thought the video was too cool not to share and we agree with the sentiment: MI in 3D totally rocks.  

[Thanks, Sam!]

Even more characters in that classic Bubble Bobble style

Well, my Monday is off to a good start. Yours will be too, if you liked Paul Robertson's Taito-style pixel art series. It continues with another hundred characters, viewable below. Without a doubt, my favorite this time around is the Cacodemon from Doom. It looks so friendly! Who's yours? 100 Taito style sprites part 3 [Paul Robertson]more

Farts 'N' Crafts: Watch Dogs Vs. Mortal Kombat Vs. Garfield

Here on Farts 'N' Crafts, we tackle a lot of hard-hitting issues. And by hard-hitting issues, I specifically mean "bodily fluids," which is almost ironic considering the show's title. We've done dog feces, we've gone hedgeho...more

All characters should be redone in the style of Bubble Bobble for maximum cuteness

Hamza and I are huge fans of Paul Robertson's pixel art and animation, though the same could be said of everyone here at Destructoid, I suspect. He's one of the best. Trips to Robertson's blog are always a treat, albeit for d...more
