This Steam Deck mod is a great retro tribute to Monkey Island

Now you can relive the secret of Monkey Island every time you fire up your Steam Deck, thanks to a custom splash screen mod. While Valve’s SteamOS startup experience is already quite enjoyable, the custom intro makes for a pretty nifty nostalgia trip.

Shared by Reddit user Superscabo, the Steam Deck Monkey Island mod replaces Valve’s handheld animation with a classic point-and-click moment. The only difference between the custom intro and the original scene is in Guybrush Threepwood’s opening words. Instead of declaring his pirate ambitions, the protagonist says that he wants a Deck of his own.

Steam Deck Monkey Island’s intro is a great nostalgic nod to the early days of LucasArts’ iconic adventure series, but it’s admittedly longer than Valve’s intro. Superscabo goes on to say that there is a shorter version of the Steam Deck splash screen, but it will appear at a later date.

As well as being a lovely reference to the Monkey Island franchise, it also highlights the gaming laptop’s customizable capabilities. Another recent Steam Deck mod replaces the home screen with the iconic opening titles from Star Wars, complete with John Williams’ unmistakable score.

Fortunately, the Monkey Island intro available for download is available to download for free, so you won’t have to make your own starter prank. If you prefer to experience the tribute to Monkey Island on a fancy screen, you can grab the best Steam Deck dock, connect your handheld to a screen, and watch Guybrush demand a deck on the big screen.
