I bought it the minute it became active on Steam.
I managed to spend 7 hours on it while trying to get ever line of dialogue out of everyone, listening to the music, switching to old school look on every screen, etc. So the game's rather short, especially if you have played it through before. :)
DEFINITELY worth the money. It's only 9 euros after all. It's still a great game and made me laugh again after all these years.

I really hope they do MI2 next (then Loom please).

Some comparison pictures between the old and new version.

The special edition is in full HD so those pics don't do it full justice.

When in the game you can press F10 any time to switch between the old and new version. You even get the old music and sound effects.

I used to play this on Amiga 500 and it came on a big stack of disks. :)
