Pirates in the interim theatre, eh?

Pirate ships and lashings of rum (edit: and Fone Bone).

Clearly this is a thinly veiled message that means you are working on Monkey Island episodes. :eek:

    But the real question is which can of soda is his?



    The Arrrrr-C cola?

    Oh no... I can't believe I unwillingly set that up... I certainly hope not to see the Arrrr-C Cola joke in the next episode.

    Now that makes me think about how cool it would be if you could set the date to "Talk Like a Pirate Day."

    Maybe the last episode could have two complete sets of dialog, one for normal days, and one for International Talk Like a Pirate Day! That is brilliant numble! Come on Telltale, it isn't like it is that hard to write a whole new script for an episode, or to get the voice actors to read said scripts. I am sure it would only take about half an hour to implement.

  • Say, did we even name our pirate?

    I'd say that the circumstantial evidence is piling up - anyone who has played "Abe Lincoln Must Die" and noticed one of the news headlines in front of Bosco's knows what I am talking about... There is a headline on one of the papers that says: "Purcell attacked by two-headed monkey" or something similar

    Even easier would be just to have each voice actor record a couple of extra lines:

    [LIST]
    [*]Arrr!
    [*]Matey!
    [*]Avast!
    [*]Shiver me timbers!
    [/LIST]

    And then plug them in randomly at the beginning (or end, in the case of Matey!) of each sentence.

    Shiver me timbers! That certainly wouldn't be sporting.

    Where's the noose collection? Matey!
    Arrr! It's a surprise!

  • Numble, you are a child genius... and if you are no longer a child, that makes the fact that you are a child genius even more amazing!

    Telltale, can you please implement this?

    This actually wouldn't work.

    It would have to be:
    Arrr! Where's the rest of the noose collection, Max?
    It's a surprise! Matey!

    Which kind of proves that you would run into some issues if you just randomly plug words in.

  • I think it could work, it has to! Because it's a brilliant idea! =p
