This can't just be a coincidence!

Has anyone notice the strange copper arch we passing through when Guybrush is sailing to the center of the Crossroads? Well, I've taken some shots:

It is impressive how it resembles those found in the Undergrounds of Dinky Island :eek:

Also I snatched an assonance between the gloomy pirate afterlife music theme and the Undergrounds track. Share your impressions...

  • I think it could well be a refference. Or at least a refference to a theme park ride.

  • There is definitely something odd going on there, and raises questions.

    I still think the monkeys did it.

    EDIT: Plus, I read On Stranger Tides a while back, and I must say I feel that there is some kind of connection with those tunnels somehow. I know it was used as inspiration for Monkey Island, but still I feel that there is something I'm missing in both that could explain alot, something to do with the tunnels.

  • It was done deliberately as Guybrush himself looks at the copper arches the first time he rides the mechanical boat and says: "Hm?"

  • Also, refresh your mind by watching this walkthrough from exactly 2:45 on.

  • And ALSO when you put the dirt on the boat, the ferryman says: "Ah pig knuckles! I just polished that ... rotten kids ..."

  • I think you guys have officially been here too long...

    You guys are nuts.

  • Think a little harder.. Telltale worked with Ron Gilbert, so the story of Monkey Island could merge with the story Ron had in mind for MI3. We should be really happy to see all this resembling to the theme park, as it is clearly the main part of the enigma Ron created with the ending of MI2. Guybrush's world is strange - looks lika a huge theme park, even in the original first two series. The Ferryman in TMI:RoPG acts like theme park staff.. has to keep the boat cart clean.. recites the ride's rules by heart.. needs to be payed for the ride.. and disappears after his shift has ended.

    Anything is possible but you guys are really reaching, having bolts in large huge support frames is common in ships, large vats in factories, most major structures that would require them. Seeing bolts on a frame to a structure and claiming that it's a MI two reference is creative at best and at worse delusional. Most large structures use metal and bolts, way of the world. The size is very different, and having a tunnel, I have a tunnel at my parks, looks like a sewer tunnel. I don't see sewer tunnels and say it must be Lechuck's theme park...

    People are really reaching, Guybrush doesn't say HMMM and look at the supports, their not even in the shot, he says hmm because he's dead and heading into a dark spooky tunnel, and I think it's more like a grumbling made in fear and uncertainty than a hmmm.

    Guys are really reading into this too deeply but have your fun with it.

  • Guybrush looks at an arch, and the arch is shown from its one side to the other, so that we notice it. We are not going too deep into this, we are just trying to explain some connections Telltales maybe even wanted to be clearly revealed, but did not succed.

  • Oh yes, and Galeb sells a souvenir picture to Guybrush, ..
