  • If Ron Gilbert owned the rights, we could see a Monkey Island reboot from the second game onwards.

  • Lucasarts if youre reading this then please let telltale make a sequel I will preorder it and then buy it for 5 other people afterwards

    @Kalanac said: If someone would be so kind as to provide links to said press releases that would really help clear things up. The only real link was to an E3 video where a guy said tales is set after an "imaginary 5th game" and quotes from some guy named Jake (quoted but not referenced (as in linked to the original post/article/source)).


    Jake is Jake Rodkin, who was the co-designer of all five episodes of Tales of Monkey Island.

    Every quote on this forum references the original post. All you have to do to view the original post is to click on the little blue arrow next to the poster's name in the quote, and the entire original post from that quote will be brought up. :)

  • @Irishmile said: I know! do these people expect games between each of the games too? Because each one kind of starts some time after the last game... I guess they should have made a game in between 1 and 2 about how GT got to scabb and between 3-4 showing their months long honeymoon.

    Seriously each game hints at adventures prior to where we as the player starts.

    Yup. MI2 clearly picks up that way reciting stories. MI3 picks up with him documenting the adventures he had escaping, while LeChuck was besieging another island.

    MI4 I don't remember so much. I actually liked it but only played through it once. Had it on PS2 and the disc went bad, so I haven't been able to replay it, as I did obsessively with all the rest of the games.

    Heavens forbid.

  • I usually do not condone trolling... but I am tempted to suggest we troll the heck out of Lucasarts official forum.... like everyone here starting a new thread all requesting a sequel to ToMI.

    What would be the harm? Do people really care about the continuity in the stories anymore? Every Monkey Island since CMI has had a different team (with the exception of a few people), with a different take on the Monkey Island universe. For example, having Guybrush single again, not having to run errands for Elaine or trying to save her from LeChuck. Every Monkey Island game since Ron left has been about saving Elaine (wether it's from a Curse or something else). After Ron left, Monkey Island has been going in circles, much like the Zelda games, or to a much worse degree, Mario. It's the same story told in a different way. The eternal triangle of love and hate. The villain, the hero and the princess. That is why I want to see a reboot, wether it's from MI2 onwards or from the scratch. I don't mind these things in Zelda and Mario, but I don't want this in Monkey Island. I don't want to know what to expect. There's no surprises anymore. Lechuck is good, no just kidding, Lechuck is evil. Surprised. Er, not really.

    The storywriters just doesn't have any balls anymore. They rely too much on giving what people expect rather than surprising them. I'd much rather want the latter. For this to happen, I think something drastic has to happen in the next Monkey Island game.

  • More drastic than several characters actually (and dramatically!) dying during the game?

  • Drastic as in actually have any impact on further games. Irrelevant npc characters doesn't qualify for having any impact whatsover for future games, and nothing in ToMI has even hinted that the next Monkey Island game would stop running in circles. EMI, CMI and ToMI have all had an "everything back to normal" ending. MI1 and 2 did not. I don't want everything to be back to normal.

    I was fine with the Voodoo Lady turning out to be something more and that's what I'm hoping gets expanded upon in the next game.

    I don't want Ron Gilbert's version of MI3 where Elaine and Guybrush are just friends. In fact the whole ending to MI2 was... disappointing. I thoroughly enjoyed CoMI and Tales and don't mind what Telltale set up for their next game. With Gilbert all I could hope for is bad storytelling.
