should telltale make another monkey island season

they should make it 2 dimensional. 3d just doesn't suit monkey island as well. it could be the same kind of graphics as puzzle agent
anyone else agree that 2d is better?

  • Of course they should make a second season!

  • @VeronicanPlay said: They have to and they will make a new season, maybe not in the near future but they will. :D


    I was in the last year of my degree when they brought TOMI out, I played the first 2 parts when it was released, but I only just found the time to play the rest. I'm glad it took me so long to get round to it though, it’s given me something to look forward to. Who knows when the next one will be released?

    It better not be too far into the future though. I was kind of hoping they would be making a new monkey island game really soon, if it did well enough. In fact, I thought by now we would at least hear some kind of news of a plan to make another.

    I can't wait another 10 years lol! I know the new game doesn’t stand up to the original standards of the first two, but I still love every Monkey Island game regardless.

  • I've come to the conclusion recently that Tales Season II HAS to happen. Not only because the first season was Telltale's best overall season, but now that we know that LucasArts' outsourced franchises are not in danger, and that Tales brought more customers to Telltale than any other series so far, I honestly think they'd be stupid not to do another season.

    However, I DON'T want them to develop it for WiiWare. WiiWare caused several scale-backs with the game (though maybe that's the way TT wanted it, so that they'd save time), but I think the more...simplistic approach with Tales in terms of visuals, and maybe even gameplay was done because the WiiWare could not handle the filesize. The soundtrack, fantastic as it was, was also scaled back and was composed in MIDI (for WiiWare), then run through synthesizers (I think) for PC to make it appear to be live. Without WiiWare, Telltale can bring back Michael Land, AND a reggae orchestra, and really make the music something special and more reminiscent of CMI. I'd sacrifice WiiWare development for say...PS3, a platform that Telltale seem to be working closely with these days, plus the first season ran well on PS3, did it not?

    Give it a few years, let Telltale produce Back to the Future and Jurassic Park, get more experience in audience, marketing, game designing and visuals (though they're already fantastic as it is, S&M 305 proved that), and bring back Tales in 2011 (or roundabouts), and make it a masterpiece.

    I will go with that, since the start of 2011 is only a few months away:D I'm all for a bigger budge verson, as long as it doesn't take too long. It's one of the only game's I play tbh. Most the games these days are either far too easy or combat games. Plus Monkey Island games are the only ones that I even found funny.

    This, this, oh god, this. See also SBCG4AP, which was FULL of gltiches because of the Wiiware development.

  • Well, I have read from Sabre of Wikipedia that "There may well be another sequel/season in due course (but either LEC or TTG has announced no such thing), but there aren't going to be any more episodes added to this run." :(

  • Well, they have the Back to the Future and Jurassic Park games on their plates atm, that's not an indication that we won't get a new season of ToMI in the future.

  • @mgrant said: Well, they have the Back to the Future and Jurassic Park games on their plates atm, that's not an indication that we won't get a new season of ToMI in the future.

    This is why it wont be soon, imo. As I said above I am like 85% sure there will be a ToMI S2 (unless LA gets stupid like they have in the past) but I think we wont see it untill 2013 or so.

    I *think* someone on here said that the first epp of BTTF will be released in Dec (though I might be wrong) with 5 epps, that makes Dec - Jan - Feb - March - april. then, assuming the more-or-less standard 6-month development for their games, JP will be released in Oct (2011) and run Oct - Nov - Dec - Jan - Feb. Assuming another 6 months of development, that means the next series will begin on Aug 2012 and run aug -sept -oct -nov -dec.

    People are also screaming for S2 of W+G or SBCGFAP, which, if either would made, would be the "3rd game" mentioned above, bringing ToMI out 6 months later in July 2013. (And I have this sinking suspicion that TTG will be getting more licenses by then)

    Really, I thought I was done but...

    Tales was awesome on the wii, it sounded and worked amazing, first off, telltale could just easily do the music for PC, then cut it down for the wii, second I found no graphical problems on the wii, while I found tons on my PC which can play games like TF2. I found no problems whatsoever, while people like to complain, seriously the only glitch I ever found besides the whole repeating lines thing with the home menu(which has happened in all of telltales wii titles) was a wierd glitch where guybrush is invisible in one portion of Chapter 5, which I think was just a bad screw up with telltale and not the wii itself. Why do people complain, I have found nothing wrong with it. It shoulden't lose the wiiware port just because people like to complain.Plus I dont have a PS3 if this happens

  • Aye! Unbedingt!

    I love this game and to me it's a masterpiece what Telltale Games made of it: Story, graphic and character design are brilliant.
