Zeke and Julie from Zombies Ate My Neighbours! (Genesis and SNES; September, 1993) produced by LucasArts of San Francisco, California.
A charming game with all that classic Lucas Arts charming charm. But did you know there was also a lesser-known sequel entitled Ghoul Patrol that charmed absolutely no one?
Guybrush Threepwood from The Secret of Monkey Island (PC, October 1990), produced by LucasArts of San Francisco, California.
The Monkey Island series remain my favourite point-and-click adventure franchise of all time, though it’s not like there’s much competition in that genre these days. I always particularly admired the amount of in-jokes and subtle visual gags the artists managed to cram into every scene and background. Much harder to do in the 3D era.
