After demonstrating his camera projection technique for turning the original 2D concept art from Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge into 3D scenes, artist Hannes Appell has taken the idea of updating the 1991 PC game by recreating its backgrounds as 3D scenes in CryEngine 2.

Appell built the sets using Maya before exporting them into CryEngine's Sandbox editor. In this demonstration, you can see him not only walking through the environments but actually interacting with them, picking up objects and swimming at the beach. All the demonstration needs is a 3D Guybrush model!

The artist says he's considering a release for the CryEngine Monkey level in the near future. You can read more about his camera projection technique and see screenshots from the process at the project site.
