Strange article. I can't tell if they are referring to CMI: SE or Ron Gilbert's version of what follows Part 2. Ron sort of ignores TOMI.
This qoute bothers me though.
“I’d really love to make Monkey Island 3,” Gilbert said. “Unfortunately, I don’t own the rights to that. That all belongs to LucasArts. Even if I started a Kickstarter and I raised like 30 million dollars, I really don’t think LucasArts would sell it.”
