Suggestions for the Collector's DVD

So we're already in 2010 and just can't wait for that promised Tales of Monkey Island Collector's DVD.

I've been thinking about what would it have and probably some people are still holding their fingers back on that checkout button, so I compiled a little list of things I'd like to see on the upcoming DVD (having in mind low production costs and package size).

[LIST]
[*]Steve Purcell's art as the cover
Just making sure it's going to be the official cover. That or a classic cover art like the previous MI games. Sorry Telltale but that first render of Guybrush still looks awful, the shading makes him look horribly weird.
[*]Higher quality speech
Some lines of dialog would benefit from less compression.
[*]Higher quality textures
Same here, there were times that the textures seemed way to pixelated and blurry.
[*]Official Soundtrack (either digital or on a CD)
Please yes! I won't lie, I've used a tool to extract some music out of Tales of MI and I can't stop listening to them. So obviously, I'd love actual, official, longer versions of tunes like swordfight.ogg. ;)
[*]Official Artwork (digital format)
Since asking for a artbook would be too much, I'd love to have high resolution artwork in the DVD. Please? Pretty please? Please pretty please with sugar on top?
[*]And finally (and wishfully)... Steve Purcell's Poster
Because I'm a bit baffled that the unsigned posters costs nearly as much as two episodes together... No offense to Steve Purcell's work, it's a piece of art, but some people have to pay extra to have for such a small poster shipped. :( (my room's walls are filled with movie size posters)
[/LIST]

Newly added:
[LIST]
[*]The official deck of tarot cards (added by Indrid Cold)


[*]Commentaries, making of and behind the scenes videos (added by Irishmile)


[*]Outtake reel (added by Scrawffler)


[*]Every episode of I Wonder What Happens (added by pluizig)
[/LIST]

So... could the Telltale team please stand up and give us a small peek at what people will get for buying or upgrading to the full season?

And what do you, Monkey Islanders, would like to see in your Collector's DVD? Have in mind that Telltale's probably not going to ship anything more than a DVD within a plastic case, but you can be extravagant if you wish. :P

  • Personally, i'd be happy with just the standard "making of" and interviews. Although i wouldn't complain if you let the people who pre-order the DVD itself (having bought the entire series post launch ( i was a wiiware user initially)) to get the Limited edition sleeve thing aswell. *hint hint*

  • Sorry if someone already covered this, but I just got thinking.
    And while this is a minor detail, it's one of those nuances that could separate TOMI from Monkey Island canon.

    The interlude/cutscene between each chapter is usually filled with that same melody and the chapter title. While I welcome Telltale if they make this game episodic, I just feel TOMI would be incongruous somehow if they don't keep with particular charm of he rest of the series.

    A little, but big thing!

    Please Telltale Games, follow suit!

    Um, TOMI had this.

  • Remember this from a while back?

    I think it definitely deserves to be added as a bonus feature.

  • @Secret Fawful said: Um, TOMI had this.

    Yeah, it was pretty hard to miss...

  • @Ash735 said:
    Also, Dominic Armato commentry :)

    @Ash735 said: I've asked for this a zillion times now... and Dominic was like "If they want me to...", so DO THAT, G'DMN'IT!!

    YES, PLEASE! Dominic Armato commentary! Please? I'll give you a cookie...

    @Ash735 said: 1. Make it to where Guybrush can actually SAY all of the dialogue options in Chapter 1.

    2. Add maps to the intro credits as you were originally planning to do. I know Jake said it was planned but you didn't have time, well, NOW YOU HAVE TIME. If you don't, Winslow will cry. And more of Will's art is always a good thing.

    Winslow will cry, lol. But hey, that's a great idea, tbh.

    Also, I wasn't bothered by the dialogue from Chapter 1 except the beginning conversation with Nipperkin. I did get a bit annoyed at that.

  • I want a find the map game for Winslow.

  • I'm a tad confused about the whole 'adding maps to the intro credits' thing. What does that mean?

    Take a look at the Curse Of Monkey Island credits here - you'll see...

  • Dominic Armato commentary, and voice actor commentary in general, would be made of awesome and win. I'd love to see that.
