The lead artist on "Curse of Monkey Island" was Bill Tiller, who founded his own (now inactive) company Autumn Moon Entertainment
. AME released two games, A Vampyre Story
and Ghost Pirates of Vooju Island
, both featuring fantastic 2D backgrounds by Bill Tiller which take the style he developed for CoMI even further.
While visually gorgeous, both games lack a bit in the storytelling department, with A Vampyre Story sadly ending on a not-yet-concluded cliffhanger.
Having said that, both MI1 and MI2 look fantastic, and the SE of MI2 isn't too shabby either. Still, I wouldn't mind MI3 looking SEs (not to mention an HD update for "Curse of Monkey Island").
