Ian / Nihil Quest
So, I take it, those golden masters were a PC version? Were you involved with Amiga version at all?

I'm Polish, so as a kid I played these games with a walkthrough and even then it was pretty hard - both to play and understand. What an amazing experience it was though. Most of the other games I had access to were arcade, shooters, stuff like that. Story based games were a revelation to me (starting few years earlier with Maniac Mansion on C-64). I actually think Monkey Island and Monty Python are two of the most important things that shaped my sense of humor. How about that!
