  • My fear is that the new pres will say something like "Yes the MI games were in fact profitable.. but we can take that same resources and crap out another star wars shooter and make twice or three times the money for the effort."

  • Dear Telltale,

    If you don't really want it... Can I haz Monkey Island rights?

    Thanks, TomPravetz

  • I prefer episodic to standalone games and not to be too pessimistic I don't think there might be another monkey island game unless telltale manages to come up with an even bigger plot than Tales. I hate to say this but there really isn't any scope for anymore stories because everything has been said and done, from guybrush dying , lechuck turning human etc. I would be quite frankly, suprised if telltale got hold of a more diabolical plot.

    However on the bright side this is telltale we are talking about here and we can
    completely trust them to come up with something.
    or maybe I'm just hyperventilating.
    Cheers!!

  • Hi, can't we just have some people say there should be a MI5 and some not?
    You're all starting to sound like a democracy

  • if anyone knows if/when it's getting released let me know

  • well if/when there was another tomi game, why could'nt lechuck 'finally' die and a new villan be introduced? Or Guybrush's son or something... just an idea

    You could do that.
    LeChuck could reveal that he is Guybrush's brother (again) and we could plaster MI with more inane Star Wars references.

    What's more is we could make a prequel to the entire series, discovering Guybrush's older brother LeChuck and his swashbuckling escapades against a Caribbean that is being supplanted by an inSidious plot by some random mysterious and dark figure. Then we can follow the descent of LeChuck to darkness in later games.
    Here's how it goes:

    MI: The Monkey Menace
    After joining as a fledgling padawan of the Voodoo Temple, the Temple's High Priestess, the Vooddoo Lady (who has an unnatural predilection for swampy-Dagobah type abodes) will make prophetic assessments about the young LeChuck that only the Gamers will understand when she tells young LeChuck that his fears and anxieties (typical teen mumbo jumbo) will not only lead to acne and Facebook bullying but could cause him to fall to the darkside :eek:

    The rest of the game will involve redundant puzzles in liberating Blood island under embargo and occupation from a certain Marco LaGrande who is just a proponent of a much broader, and meticulously evil scheme played out by the inSidious Voodoo Priest.

    LeChuck will develop a forbidden crush on a much older woman by the name of Goodsoup.

    And the island will be saved in the end with the annihilation of the embargo, the capture and reprimand of Marco, by the Caribbean Senate, and the death of a pirate-hunting apprentice to the voodoo priest.

    MI: Attack of the Undead

    10 years later. The darkside of Voodoo have began to be recognised in the encroaching shadows on the Republic of the Caribbean.
    LeChuck begins the game again, now a little less pimply,a lot more angsty. And has developed a pretty gnarly beard too.

    Meanwhile assassination attempts lead LeChuck and his allies on a mission that uncovers a secret undead army being developed on a mysterious island, deleted from the Phatt Island Library catalogue, known as Monkey Island.

    Looking to who is behind this the Supreme Pirate Governor reveals this as a part of a new order in the Republic, helping to enure less Rum-induced brain damage, portection of open ports from potential embargo, and upholding the need for established bed-times on Islands of perpetual darkness.

    To offset this proliferation of repressions the Republic engages in a conflict on a planet traced to earlier assassinations from mysterious pirate-hunters. There it is revealed recent attempts by Islands to secede from the Republic has culminated in this groups own proliferation of armed forces. Little does young LeChuck or the Pirate Republic realise that this is in fact a part of the evil Voodoo Priest's dastardly plans to fracture the Caribbean.

    Oh and LeChuck visits his drop-dead gorgeous Goodsoup Girlfriend, consolidating their forbidden love with a massive ring.

    Revenge of... (the corny titles that do not fit with the established MI title flow)

    War!
    LeChuck's been rustling the sheets and rocking the boat (yeah he had sex get over it)

    The Pirate Republic is in a state of Civil War known as the Undead Wars! Every island has become embroiled in the conflict. Meanwhile dark forces of voodoo are playing out within the Pirate Republic.
    This is a state of uncertainty and fear.

    A few action scenes later...

    LeChuck loses faith in the Voodoo Temple and says "what the heck I want to be a pirate", faces off against his old friends who kill him (after they solve some meticulous puzzle) and he dies as a consequence.
    The Voodoo Lady squares off with the Evil Voodoo Priest too.

    Etc.

    She loses, relocates to Melee Island after also losing a bid at auction on a nice swamp-land hut to an annoying man in a static plaid suit; 2 bedrooms, ensuite, double boat dock, and a murky swimming pool. Only $220,000.

    The evil Voodoo regime takes over the galaxy, ahem, the Caribbean and LeChuck returns as an evil ghost to boss everyone around.


    The rest you know.


    So what do you think?
    My writing excellence aside do you think its a great idea, I know LucasArts would be salivating right now. It may not be the MI we want but it's the MI they're going to give us if we ask them anyway.

    I disagree. I think that there's an endless supply of routes and avenues that Monkey Island could take in future games. The MI world is vast and expansive, and hasn't even been fully explored yet. As far as the whole 'Guybrush & Elaine versus LeChuck' scenario goes, yeah, all options for that may have been exhausted. But if the writers choose to break away from that situation, then there's myriad possibilities for future storylines, plotlines and original ideas.

    The Voodoo lady is a good route to take. She could do somthing that in her mind is good but Guybrush thinks is evil and he has to stop.

    Yeah, the Voodoo Lady would be nice; something new and fresh. However, I don't really want to see the Voodoo Lady turn into someone who is depicted as entirely 'evil' or as a direct antagonist. I'd rather her remain a neutral force, in all honesty.

    I'd actually really like to see King Andre given the role of lead villain in one of the future games. I've expressed my reasons elsewhere:

    @coolsome said: Anyway, on the subject of returning characters, I'd actually really love to see a re-appearance from King Andre. He was such a cool character; everything about him - his appearance, his lair, his persona and personality - was just great. He was a top villain, but was never given enough time in the sun/limelight. So I'd love to see him come back with a slightly larger role in one of the future games.

    Perhaps, now with LeChuck now just a skull in a jar, Andre's willing to come out of his cave, and make an attempt at conquering the Caribbean, perhaps using his wealth to hire LeChuck's leftover skeletal minions to do his dirty work.
    Or maybe he could 'pull an Ozzie', and use his riches to try to buy up the Caribbean, while hiring the best bounty hunters in the Caribbean to eliminate all competition and opposition.
    Just some thoughts :).

    What I'm basically trying to say is that the character has a lot of potential, so it would be a shame if he went unused.
