Private Pirate Monkey Brainstorming...

posted by ttg_Stemmle on - last edited - Viewed by 6.2K users

Hey guys 'n' gals,

In the spirit of "tapping the hive mind," I've got a few enigmatic questions for y'all:

-- What sort of book titles do you think could be found on the Voodoo Lady's bookshelf? Y'know, things like "The Joy of Hex," or "Screams of My Father."

-- For reasons that defy explanation, we're trying to enumerate dozens of unique kinds of winds, things like "The Wind the Blows Off Your Hat," or "The Wind that Sounds Remarkably Like an Unhappy Echidna." Can you think of any others?

-- Lastly, what's your pirate name?

Not promising anything,
Mike "Sleepy Boy" Stemmle

  • @Zomantic said: :D I hope this one gets into the game; I fear that the developers stopped reviewing this huge list early on: it really would be a pity, because its last pages contain some of the best ones.

    Something tells me we won't know whose ideas got into the game until we play it and see our pirate names in the credits, or something. Which is REALLY suspenseful.

    Yep! I saw some ideas that were truly funny!
    Besides, why else would they ask us for only ONE pirate name...and OUR pirate name, not to invent a funny one. :)
    I actually can't wait. Due to the fact that they are working on episode two, and scripting episode three, I think that we might see something in episode three.
    From my part, even if they use only one book name and only one wind name out of all, it is great! Because I feel that I actually participated into giving ideas, brainstorming for a Monkey Island game. It's...the greatest thing...ever!
    I hope they'll have another brainstorming soon! :D

    That's so true. First thing when I get to the Voodoo Lady: pixel hunting around the book shelves.^^

  • Woo-hoo! Pixel hunting!
    Guys...we are actually participating in the creation process of this game! Can you imagine this? We can all brag to our grandchildren:

    "Well, Billy--"
    "It's TOM, Grandpa."
    "Tom, yes...Well, Tommy, when I was your age I actually had the oportunity of helping the TTG team in their production of ToMI!"
    "Really, Grandpa? Where's your name on the credits?"
    "Errr, my pirate name was P. Silverwolf, and I gave them ideas about book titles and wind names!"
    "A-ha...and did any of those ideas make it into the actual game?"
    "Hee-hee-hee *dentures fall out of his mouth* Oh, darn... well, umm...no. But I WAS there, Billy! I WAS there!"

    :p Sorry, it's late, maybe I should get some rest.

    I know it! This game has been an absolute blast! It feels like we were in a room filled with Telltale employees of all types, brainstorming jokes all week. I loved it. (That pre-order deal has been thirty-five bucks of pure fun.) :D :D

    "It's TOM, Grandpa."
