This 3D version of Melee Island created by Jochen Isensee was made using the ever reliable and mod friendly Half Life. Jochen writes:
What a rush of nostalgia. Lately somebody reminded of the Half-Life Map i created from the Melee Island Town, that shabby piratedump in „Monkey Island”. I rediscovered it in a 2004 backup of my website. Meanwhile this became a nostalgia double-feature, because the first part of Half-Life got ready for musuem as well as it has written computergame history too. Where are time-traveling not only back into the most charming caribbean adventuregame ever but also into a time when brushwork and polycount where everything while creating Half-Life Maps whith Valve’s Hammer Editor 3,2. Here you can hang around in the Scummbar, pay a visit to the church, the prison and do some side-seeing in the servers beyound the dead end which we have encountered in the „Le Chuck’s Revenge for the first time. And it there has never been such a freedom of movement before!

It comes with a model of Guybrush by Croc hunter. And the excellent old school Soundtrack “PC Speaker Ragae Remix” of the Youtube Trailer is done by Sebastian Steger.
