  • Yeah, the podcast is pretty awesome. I'm kind of disheartened by the way they talk at the end that "nobody wants to know the secret." I do, and I think a lot of the fans really do. The rational of "it couldn't live up to the expectations" is stupid. The fact of the matter is that there WAS a secret and I think that the game should be made because Ron had something planned and I want to know about it.

    Actually he doesn’t reveal the secret.
    Seriously, what a bad idea to reveal it in a podcast by Craig Derrick. :)

    I am more interested in the story/the »third« game than the secret.

    That's how I feel. I think people focus too much on the revelation of the secret rather than the entire story or the third game.

    Also, just as a disclaimer, I love Curse of Monkey Island so this is definitely not from a hater.

  • You could reveal the secret in a new MI game without making it the main focus of the story. Kind of how the holy grail wasn't the main focus of Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade, but rather it was about Indy's relationship with his father. That's a great way to approach it, I think.

    Very good point, I like that.

  • I know they were joking, but the mention of "flash-sideways" got me thinking. LOST-meets-Monkey Island. Imagine the possibilites: More mystery! More jungle adventures! Backstories on the major characters! An excuse to create an alternate timeline to fit the "Ron Gilbert MI3" game into (Big Woop=dyrogen bomb)!

  • I think Majus should make the "I Wonder What Happens in The TRUE SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND". Majus do you think it will ever get done?!!! :D

  • There was a significant amount of time (in the game world) between MI2 and Curse. Perhaps enough time for an additional game to have taken place?

    Only three months. There was much more time (apparently years) between MI1 and MI2.
