Secret of Monkey Island 1992 mystery release 

I found a copy of MI1 on CD-ROM in a cardboard sleeve, IBM PC version from 1992, and I was wondering if anyone has a clue as to where it came from? I can't locate any releases on CD-ROM that came in this particular packaging online.

I realize this might not be a very relevant topic on this site, so feel free to say so. Anyways, thanks from Norway!

Could be a promotional copy or a re-release?

Could you post a photo of the sleeve and cd-rom and list the contents of it?

Wikipedia states that this is the CD_ROM re-release from 1992

I'm a bit of a collector, and so I kind of obsess about particularities and differences of releases, I guess games aren't very often archived in the same way as say vinyl records, but I can't find this version in a similar presentation.

Still will look pretty killer on the shelf.

I would have thought that as it's manufactured by Creative Labs that it was originally given away with a Creative Labs CD-Rom drive or sound card.

That's probably it! Makes perfect sense, damn, my detective skills fell through on that one. Thank you so much.

I think this is the same copy that my dad bought back in the day. It didn't come in a box, but was shrink-wrapped with that cardboard CD case and the manual. I still have it. He cut the cardboard case up to fit it inside a standard jewel case, though. He just found it on the rack in a computer store. Don't remember which one at all. I remember being there, though. We were both confused why it didn't come with a box. Didn't come with a sound card but that doesn't mean it didn't initially. Maybe it was refurbished or something?

Thanks for the replies, I just ran through the game and it seems to be the same as other PC CD-ROM 256 color releases as far as I could tell. My first run on a legitimate version since early 90's.

Creative Labs is such a throwback in itself...wow. I can't believe you even remembered that.
