After FLOTSAM ISLAND, which already known islands would you like to see in the game? I would like to see Plunder Island and Blood Island...

  • I just want a really moody and dark island, like Scabb or Blood Island. Not Melee, 'cause that's just a cozy place to be. And I'd love to see another town where the buildings are old shipwrecks, like on Scabb.

  • Just to think about it, TellTale can do that cool kind of night scene we've seen in prologue on the ship, and suddenly decides they won't do any night scenes? I think not :p

  • [Devil's advocate]

    We know the prologue was originally daytime, so they changed it when they realised there was no night scenes!

    I know but think about it:

    We've already had some concept art for chapter 2, that clearly defines Spinner Cay (and anywhere else depicted) as daytime places.

    Chapter 3: Lair of Leviathan is a battle with an sea monster, probably all underwater.

    Chapter 4's title is "The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood", which leads me to believe most (if not all) is shot in the Flotsam courthouse. (oh btw I can really see a return to Flotsam being night, to send the inhabitants we've met indoors and bring other stuff out; that jungle and shack would look fab at night)

    Chapter 5: Rise of a Pirate God screams showdown and LeChuck regaining his evil supernatural form, to me. Could well be at sea, at night (a reverse of the opening scene).


    Night islands? Not much scope...

    That would be too cruel :(

  • But there was the talk of some island hopping in the Siege, so it may be that at least one of those "islands" will have night scenes (keeps fingers crossed) ;)
    And besides, the first video materials of Launch were in daytime too, and they managed to change the prologue into the night scene. SO, there's still hope :p
    Edit: I doubt the Trial will take place in courthouse only. That would be deadly boring, to say the least.

  • Assuming we do return to Flotsam which is very likely, I think it would just make sense to make it night upon the return.
    We know TT likes to recycle stuff when they can, but they also know how to dress it up so you're not just going through the same exact environment over again. A night time transition just seems to make sense here.

    I also agree that it would make sense if one of the Jerkbait islands is a night scene.

    Remember, the first island in Curse had day AND night scenes. [Le Chimp's ship area]

    Plunder never had day/night transition. It was just an extreme weather anomaly (actually not unlike Flotsam anomaly), causing the northern side of Plunder (Danjer Cove) to experience overcast, stormy sky and the southern side to get sunshine, with guys at Brimstone Beach and Smorgy lapping up the sun.

  • I wouldn't mind not actually going back to monkey island, that's one thing that's been "done to death".

  • Not exactly done to death, as I wouldn't call the amusement park in CMI a revisit to MI. EMI just ruined the whole island though, so if MI looks the same as EMI, I'm not too interested in going there.
