Should Telltale Make a Morgan LeFlay Game?

posted by Hayden on - last edited - Viewed by 224 users

I've seen a few people asking and wishing for a Morgan LeFlay spin-off game and I was all for the idea! If Telltale were to release a Morgan LeFlay, I think it should be a little like this:

- An adventure/action game. 85% point-and-click adventure game; 15% action (mainly swordfighting).

- A five episode season, each episode is a new mission where Morgan must track down a different pirate each time.

- Morgan should re-visit old Monkey Island locations and Islands such as Booty or Scabb Island and run into SOME old characters.

- The last episode should be of Morgan hunting down Guybrush and should end in exactly the same spot as Launch of the Screaming Narwhal with Morgan putting her blade to Guybrush's throat!

  • A Morgan game would be great, but not until Tales comes to a finale where there are no future questions.

    I would like a Monkey Island game with Morgan in it, replacing Elaine as Guybrush's lover. I think Guybrush always has to be the main character, but I certainly think Morgan could play a more prominent role in the series.

    I'm not 100% sure whether i prefer her over elaine because elaine was so unlikeable in Tales, or because Morgan is awesome and I like her voice actor.

    Anyway, it looks like Morgan will be a villain (or at least a bit ambigious in her motives) in season 2 anyway, as she is returning as a ghost.

  • @Fury said: because elaine was so unlikeable in Tales



    I liked her

  • @Pale Man said: Good idea? Bad idea? Who can say? All I know is that if it says "Telltale" on it, I'll buy it.



    This.

  • I think it'd be a little bit of a wasted opportunity for Telltale if they don't make a Morgan LeFlay game. She's such a great character, so why not capitalize on that and expand the character. And if not a game, then maybe even a Morgan LeFlay comic, I think that could work, it'd be really cool (depending on the artist of course, maybe they could kidnap Paco Vink and have him do one).

    Maybe even a 2D platformer, even that would be really good! Maybe if it were in the same sort of vein as the old Pitfall: The Mayan Adventure or Duke Nukem: Manhattan Project or something. Because we saw in ToMI that Morgan both skilled in combat and acrobatics, so a platformer game would suit her great!

    I dunno, I just really want to see her character expanded because I think there is potential there. She is one of the all-time greatest MI characters of all time, and I'm not just saying that because of the cleavage.

    Maybe a certain romance could be developed between Morgan and Guybrush if one of the future episodes/seasons dealt with a parallel universe, perhaps?

    For backdrop storyline I'm thinking LeChuck figures away of wreaking havoc on the Caribbean by "introverting causality" (using perhaps an Ancient Voodoo artifact). As a result the Caribbean is effected by a massive Voodoo tarot effect, where fates and lives are switched alternatively to a different reality.

    This leaves much for the imagination I think...
    Eg:
    - Morgan is a mighty pirate, pitched against LeChuck
    - Guybrush, dreams of being a mighty pirate but is too clumsy.
    He's also married to Morgan.
    - Elaine is a Pirate-huntress
    - Governor LeChuck lords over the Caribbean, having never been defeated by some unknown wet-behind-the-ears called Guybrush Threepwood. (Also meaning he'd be human - he never would have killed himself for Elaine.
    - MURRAY! Could be the nefarious right-hand man of LeChuck, with huge aspirations of terrorizing the seven seas.
    - Herman Toothrot, the poor unfortunate sod would be left on Monkey Island in all realities, ha ha.
    Etc, etc.

    This could be okay for one or two episodes, but I wouldn't want it to be permanent though. I like the un-introverted Monkey Island world far too much.

    As for the 'Morgan and Guybrush should be lovers' idea that so many fans seem to have, I am not for it one bit. I think that Guybrush and Elaine are good together and I don't think this should be changed. The only relationship between Guybrush and Morgan is a crewmember - captain relationship and nothing more. It wouldn't be in the spirit of Monkey Island for Guybrush to run off with Morgan and betray Elaine.

  • I don't see how they could make an adventure game based on Morgan, I mean she obviously had no idea how to solve puzzles of any kind.
    When they had to get the cochlea her idea of solving the puzzle was to kill them all for it, the easy way for it but not a way to solve a puzzle.

    She was an important character to the plot in ToMI and maybe she will be again in season 2 if it comes out, but I don't think she has enough on her to be in her own adventure game really.

  • It should start at the beginning of her career and carry on through the events of Tales of Monkey Island and reveal some new information about her connection with the Voodoo Lady.
