With ToMI Chapter 2: The Siege of Spinner Cay just round the corner (Perhaps a reasonably large corner that may take a few weeks to navigate round) - What are your thoughts? What do you hope for? What do you predict is in store for our hapless hero?
In this interview, Dan Conners (TTG CEO) gives us some interesting clues...
Well, obviously something's going on with human LeChuck. He seems to be getting along with Elaine a little bit too well. The fact that LeChuck is actually quite a nice guy apparently is going to be a big part of the next episode. At the same time the pox is continuing to affect Guybrush, so he's getting a little bit more zombie-ish. He's prone to outbreaks of getting angry and things like that. So there's going to be some character development that will be real interesting for people to see.
They're off at sea and they do a bunch of island hopping in this adventure. Going around to different islands and exploring more of the area that is the series of islands that Guybrush lives on. There's a lot on the ship, a lot with Winslow, and you get to find out who is the one that puts the sword to his throat at the end of the last episode. Much is revealed, new relationships are established and the affect of the pox starts showing itself.
What do you think about "The fact that LeChuck is actually quite a nice guy"? I love this twist but how is it going down with the "LeChuck must be really scary" crew?
I'm not sure "a bunch of island hopping in this adventure" was referring to the season or the episode, but the ideas of seeing multiple islands in one chapter would be great, if a little unrealistic?
I love the idea of a section being just on the ship, SoMI style - although in confined areas puzzles do tend to get easier.
Of course, there are multiple threads about the mystery swordswoman at the end of Ep1, but I'm excited how this will fit into the story, whoever it is.
